Description

This course is meant to give the learner a solid foundation in the HP Prime for success in either an Intermediate or College Algebra course. Graphing calculators have reduced the difficulty of College Algebra by perhaps 50% from the “Dark Ages” of taking College Algebra!

This course covers fractions/mixed numbers, graphing, solving equations, solving systems of equations, zooming, t-charts, and evaluating functions. In this course, we cover the HP Prime Graphing Calculator. This is considered a CAS calculator. What does this mean? It can do almost everything in an algebra course. It is often forbidden when you take an algebra course…but not always!

Do not go buy an HP Prime after watching these videos for your algebra course. You would want to make sure that you are allowed to use it prior to the purchase! I have tried to focus on just the topics that would provide the same functionality as you would find with a non-CAS calculator like a TI-84.

Technology has become an important component of mathematics. Even if you are in a class that does not allow an HP Prime calculator, you can use it to double-check your work by hand.

This course covers just the important parts (and the parts that are typically allowed) of the HP Prime calculator for usage in College Algebra. There are many other functions that are not covered. If you decide to take the course, good luck with it and the future algebra course that you are planning on taking!
