STEM calculator guide
Often students need to use their TI-Nspire handhelds simply as a calculating tool. This 18-page guide shows them how to use the Settings menus to ensure that the results of calculations are displayed in an appropriate way.
All the following are included:
- Calculations with the factory default settings as opposed to "normal" calculation mode (i.e only decimal approximations)
- Fixed Decimal Place Mode
- Engineering Mode
- Calculating Reciprocals
- Decimal/Binary conversions
Pages 13-18 deal with preparing the handheld for use in exams and the use of "Press to Test" mode.
The guide does not attempt to teach or explain the underlying mathematical concepts.
