**2VECTORS**- Enter two vectors and program returns sum, difference, dot product, magnitudes and angle between them**COPRIMES**- Finds all coprimes for any integer between 1 and 250**FINDRULE***- Finds whether a linear, power, quadratic or exponential rules fits points**LATLONG***- Solves latitude and longitude problems**LINEAR***- Equation of a straight line when the gradient and a point or two points are known**NUMSEQS***- Generates terms of the Fibonacci sequence and prime, square or triangle numbers
As just mentioned, this edition also contains a five-page tutorial on writing your own programs. More can be found on the programs page.
**DICE**- Simulates throwing 2 dice (one red and one blue) 120 times. Create a histogram of the results**WAPOP**- Contains population figures, births and deaths for the Statistical Division of Perth from the 2001 Australian Census**POLYNUMS**- Generates the formula and the first 30 polygonal numbers for any given number of 'sides'*s*
As mentioned earlier, this edition contains a four-page tutorial on creating some common statistical graphs using these spreadsheets. The graphs are a histogram, boxplot and scatterplot. More can be found on the spreadsheets page.
This edition of fxNews contains three new eActivities. **STATS**contains three LIST strips, each already setup for the most common ways data is presented to students for analysis in upper school. This eActivity is aimed at helping students working efficiently through an assessment.**ED~V~INC**. Using data from the Australian 2001 Census, this eActivity gives students the opportunity to explore bivariate data presented in a spreadsheet.**SIM~EQNS**. This eActivity explores four ways of solving simultaneous equations with two variables using the fx-9860G.
More can be found on the eActivities page. This section aims to create those 'Ah Ha' moments. You've always thought there's got to be an easy way to do... Well, here we go again in 2007. This edition contains a listing of the tips from 2006 plus new tricks to- restrict domain of function when graphing
- graph families of functions - 3 ways!
- use degrees, minutes and seconds for angle sizes
