Resources
for using SMG (Symbolic Math Guide)
Symbolic Math Guide
is a program written for the TI89 calculator, which supports students
who are learning to carry out algebraic manipulations.

notes prepared by RITEMATHS team and guide to prepared files.
Resources
The links below lead to files which can be downloaded
onto students' TI89 calculators.
They provide a sample and a set of exercises on each topic. These
exercises sets can easily be extended by teachers or students.
Linear
equation files
These six files contain equations involving
brackets and fractions, equations where the variable appears
on both sides of the equation, equations where some work has
to be done before the x's can be collected together and revision
exercises.

Quadratic
equation files
These six files contain equations involving
the null factor law, the use of perfect squares, the use of
factorisation, the use of the quadratic formula, rearrangement,
(including simplification of rational fractions and /or cross
multiplication), challenging exercises and revision exercises.

Calculus
Derivatives
These five files contain derivatives of
polynomials, derivatives requiring use of the product, the
quotient and the chain rule, and revision exercises.
Integrals
These six files contain indefinite integrals involving polynomials,
exponential and trigonometric functions, indefinite integrals
which may be evaluated by using the method of change of variable
(use of substitution), including use of the double angle formula
for trigonometric functions, indefinite integrals of logarithmic
and inverse trigonometric functions, indefinite integrals
involving partial fractions and revision exercises.
