Mathematics is a subject that relies on a solid foundation from
which to build on. The learning process is more effective when
enhanced by visual representation to assist cognitive learning.
Graphics calculators have become an essential tool to transfer,
store and manipulate mathematical data in both scientific and
The presentation will cover the graphics calculators use in mathematical
subjects from kindergarten to university level.
We will begin by covering its use in teaching Trigonometry in year 8
and continue with Polar coordinates covered in year 11 and finish
with spherical coordinates used at a university level.
