## Discovering Calculus with the HP-28 and the HP-48This supplementary text for the standard calculus course focuses on how the HP-28S and the HP-48SX (2 graphing supercalculators) will aid in improving students' understanding of calculus. The calculators are capable of rapid production of graphics and calculations so classes that have access to the machines will save valuable time on graphing and calculations. With supercalculators such as the HP-28S and the HP-48SX, students can focus on true Calculus concepts rather than on computational details. |
