            Authors: Brenda Lee

            Affiliations: Wu Feng Institute of Technology

            Keywords: Undergraduate Level, K-12 Level, Function, Spreadsheet


            This workshop is organized as a hands-on seminar. In addition to

            PowerPoint presentation and demonstration of sample problems, the

            participants will be expected to play with their calculators and

            simulate the lecturer’s procedures. During the workshop, the usage

            of CASIO ClassPad 300 Spreadsheet Tool will be demonstrated. It will

            be shown that its calculation power is sufficient for understanding

            mathematical functions and how functions can help us better

            understand our environment and our daily life.
