Graphing Calculators in the Secondary Mathematics Classroom, Manual

Casio Computer Company introduced its fx-7000G graphing calculator in 1985. By 1989, when this monograph was published, other graphing calculators were available, not only from Casio, but from Sharp and Hewlett-Packard. However, because of its low cost, relatively large viewing screen, versatility, and ease of operation, the authors of the manual chose to focus on use of the Casio fx-7000G. George Kitchen of the Portage public schools persuaded Paul Eckert of the Kalamazoo Area Mathematics and Science Center and Cameron Nichols of the Kalamazoo Area Mathematics and Science Center to coauthor the book with him. They recruited Charles Vonder Embse of Central Michigan University to write the section on programming. The detailed text also describes basic operations of the calculator, graphical solutions to equations, a variety of functions, and applications in modeling in statistics. It was distributed by the Michigan Section of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.
