Today’s graphing calculators can do way more than add or subtract.
Solve quadratic equations graphically
Input the equation into the graphing feature of the calculator and find the intercepts graphically instead of using the quadratic formula.
Study the periodic table
Download the periodic table onto your calculator for a fun, on-the-go way to learn the elements!
Zombies can be educational! Learn math through a zombie apocalypse!
Download Zombie Apocalypse 1: STEM of the Living Dead and learn about epidemiology, immunity, predictions, and geometric progression on your calculator.
Learn to code
Create simple codes on your calculator and learn about the mathematics behind it all.
Solve derivatives and integrals
Input the equation and solve the derivative or integral numerically or graphically.
Attach sensors to your calculator and collect data on your latest experiment in real time!
With the technology now available at our fingertips, we can accomplish so much more, here and now; but, you need to know how to use it and when to use it. Sometimes, these brilliant calculators won’t be allowed in the classroom for tests or other circumstances. If you need help to understand how to use your graphing calculator and/or understand the math and science concepts behind these functions and beyond, RITES has qualified, engaging math and science tutors who can help.
