54- Exploring Modular Arithmetic in Precalculus, Calculus, and Discrete Mathematics

Thursday, April 18, 2013: 8:00 AM-9:15 AM
607 (Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
Jay L. Schiffman

Modular arithmetic enables one to solve diverse mathematical problems. Explore patterns in recursive sequences with regard to their divisibility and periodicity, forming patterns in derivatives of trigonometric and other transcendental functions, and view powers of i = SQRT [–1] with the aid of the TI-89 CAS.
