LAC2015: Physics and Calculus with the TI nSpire
Physics and Calculus with the TI nSpire
This year's Life After Calculus 2015 (LAC2015) focused on applications of Calculus to Physics. What's nice about these applications is that they serve as a brief introduction to Calculus III, IV and V!
Last year we did the same final project after the AP Exam using the TI-89. It was Hal's Swan Song! So, this year, we thought we'd use the nSpire, aka Castiel, so as to compare and contrast the two calculators. Can you guess what LAC2016 will be like? Yes, you guessed it! We'll redo this project one more time showcasing SAGE!
What follows is a series of ScreenCasts summarizing what we did. Each ScreenCast has the handout used in class as an attachment to the YouTube description.
Well, that's all folks!
