SimCalc

SimClac MathWorld is an interactive program that can be used for either pre-algebra or algebra 1. It can be found at SimClac MathWorld WebSite for free of charge. SimClac MathWorld is a program that can be downloaded for computers (2000 edition or better). It can also be downloaded to a TI-83/84 Plus, TI-73 Explorer and TI-92 Plus/Voyage 200 graphing calculators. This feature makes SimClac MathWorld unique. The purpose of SimClac MathWorld is show relationships between functions and representing that function on a graph. At the same time it has a unique feature that shows fishes that travel along a linear line with the rate the same as the rate of increase or the slope. You can input any function like a simple y=ax+b or a more complex function such as y=x^2. SimClac MathWorld is a simple and easy program to use and to figure out. You can also find worksheets and idea for lessons at Suggested Curriculum.
