Investigating Polynomials and Systems of Equations with the Graphing Calculator.
Kennedy, Paul A.
School Science and Mathematics, v93 n5 p253-56 May-Jun 1993
Integrates mathematics and science by investigating the scientific application of the Polynomial Difference Theorem using data points from an experiment. Utilizes the different capabilities of the graphing calculator to investigate a problem whose solution is a second degree equation and makes connections between the mathematical concepts involved in the problem.
