Precalculus Investigations: A Laboratory Manual, Preliminary Edition
*Appropriate as a supplement to any text in the Precalculus Curriculum. College Algebra, Algebra and Trigonometry, Trigonometry or Precalculus. This three year NSF funded project integrates an applied approach to algebra/trigonometry/precalculus mathematics based on real engineering and design problems with mathematics curriculum reform principles and practice. *The Investigations reflect the AMATC and NCTM Standards in both curriculum content and pedagogy. Each lab is based on a real-world application from another discipline, and involves interactive and collaborative learning. Students will use technology (primarily graphing calculators), employing multiple approaches (analytical, graphical, numerical, verbal) to model solutions to these problems, increasing their reasoning and problem-solving skills. *Many mathematics instructors are eager to integrate realistic applications in their teaching, but lack the time and resources to develop the necessary connections on their own. These Investigations provide such applications by modeling workplace experiences of professionals in engineering, design and management occupations.
