Worthwhile CAS calculator use in this year’s Mathematical Methods Exam 2

Summary

Routine and clever use of the CAS calculator in past Methods 2 examinations has shown it to be advantageous and worth
the time and effort in getting to know its workings. Generally, half of the multiple choice questions and many parts of the
extended answer questions benefit from good calculator skills. This hands-on session will get you using the calculator
to see just how helpful (or not) it was with this year’s questions. The most efficient methods will be presented and questions
where the calculator should be avoided will be pointed out. The session is suitable for TI-Nspire and ClassPad users and
the Casio ClassPad will be the featured CAS. Bring along your CAS calculator and a copy of the exam if available.
