Your Computer Tools for Math and Science!

Modern scientists in all fields use computers as their most important tool and yet HS classes seldom have time for students to develop skills in scientific computing.

This course will make you an expert in your own calculator and set you on the path to using computers as a way to make your math and science classes easier.

Course Description:

Graphing calculators are powerful tools that help solve many problems but so few of us know how to maximize their potential. Using the student’s graphing calculator of choice, we’ll drill basic operations and learn advanced techniques useful in calculus, physics, statistics and chemistry classes. Depending on the student’s needs, we’ll cover evaluating functions, graphing complex functions, numerical solutions to equations, differentiation and integration, and one- and two-variable statistics.

In addition, available online tools such as GeoGebra and Wolfram Alpha can assist in understanding and visualizing even the most difficult problems. These programs are laboratories where students can experiment with complex mathematical and computational ideas, investigate cause and effect, and see concrete results. These are tools used by professionals to solve many kinds of modern, relevant problems.

Finally, for the most advanced or ambitious students, we’ll look at computer algebra systems such as SageMath, and investigate the most popular programming tool of modern scientists, Python.
