Help in Using Symbolic, Hand-Held Calculators in Teaching Engineering Mathematics.
Picard, Gilles; Pineau, Kathleen
Since the 1999 fall semester, the TI-92 Plus or the TI-89 has been a compulsory purchase for new students entering one engineering school in Montreal, Canada (almost 1000 enrolments a year). The purpose of this paper is to share impressions of a campus-wide experience and to communicate solutions adopted to help students and faculty members in the use of these calculators. (MM)
