Abstract
The graphing calculator was specifically designed as a tool in teaching
and learning mathematics and statistics. Although the nature of
econometric is heavily statistical, graphing calculators are not widely
used as a learning tool for introductory econometric.
This paper will discuss how the graphing calculator can assist students
in understanding some of the foundational topics such as linear and
nonlinear regression, hypothesis testing, dummy variables and time
series. This will help students to comprehend the value of econometric
theory and practice in addressing problems, formulating and testing
hypotheses, forcasting.
