Sound Off! A Dialogue between Calculator and Algebra

William Wade 

February 2006, Volume 99, Issue 6, Page 391

Abstract:
This article describes an interesting conversation between Calculator and Algebra. It illustrates the fact that unless tempered by algebraic reasoning, a graphing calculator can lead one to erroneous conclusions. It also demonstrates that some problems can be solved by combining technology with algebra and the collaboration of the two is an excellent idea.
