Graphing Calculators

Calculus is all about functions, and graphs visually display the behavior of functions. A graphing calculator capable of zooming in and out can help us "see" both the infinite and the infinitesimal. It can also be used to explore the numerical side of functions.

A graphing calculator is a useful tool for the CalculusQuestTM expedition.

The degree to which calculator work is stressed will depend on your instructor and from where you are getting credit. Please see

The nest page is the little manual that comes with any tool - it gives answers to questions which tell you how to properly use a graphing calculator and warn you about the hazards of failing to do so.
