InquiryBased Lessons in PreCalculus:Foundations to Calculus
This collection of inquirybased lessons in
recursion is a work in progress. They aimed to provide a resource for
mathematics teachers interested on the use of graphing calculators, dynamic geometry software (DGS)
and the inquirybased (IB) approach in their classrooms.
Lessons are catagorized for use with various technology, particularly the TINSpire and the TI83 and TI84 graphing calculator from Texas Instruments.
The lessons are been developed under the
guidance of Dr. Antonio R. Quesada by students of the course “Math Technology and Communication”
and by participant teachers in the summer workshops “Selected Topics in Secondary Mathematics for HS Teachers Grades 812, Parts I and II, offered at The University of Akron.
An link to lesson contributors is at the bottom of this page.
Users of these lessons are encouraged to
submit corrections and/or suggestions on how to improve them. Readers are
encouraged to submit additional lessons on missing topics using the same
format. An editorial committee will review any lesson submitted prior to
being accepted or rejected. Once a lesson is accepted the author(s) will be
acknowledged in the index.
The following institutions have provided initial support for the development of lessons or for the workshops: the Ohio Department of Education Mathematics Initiative Grant, The University of Akron Graduate School Tuition Scholarships and TI price reduction equipment grants, The Ohio Department of Education, the Board of Regents Title II Program, The Knight Foundation (with the Summit Education Initiative as a fiscal agent), and The University of Akron.
