*Designed for use with a TI-83 or TI-83+ calculator
My algebra I students are allowed to use a graphing calculator for their end-of-the-year state exam, but many of them have had very little practice with them throughout the year. I designed this activity to introduce them to the variety of Algebra I problems (cube roots, decimal to fraction conversion, graphing linear equations, x- and y-intercepts, systems of equations solutions, and quadratic solutions) their graphing calculator is capable of solving. I have students work with partners to complete the problems while I walk around the room checking answers and troubleshooting when an inevitable wrong button gets pushed. Students then have this sheet as a reference as they use graphing calculators to complete other reviews in preparation for the exam.
