Section 1: Welcome and get ready to start getting more out of your calculator.  

Lecture 1  03:17  
Who's this course for and what are you set to learn? 

Lecture 2  01:11  
Resetting you calculator is important if you are ever unsure about the settings or mode your calculator is currently in. It is often also a requirement before an exam. 

Section 2: The Setup Menu  Setting the calculator up as you want it!  
Lecture 3  03:23  
The First Setup Menu enables you to switch between the text book display MATH mode and the more traditional LINE display. Change your angle measurements between degrees radians and even gradians. You can also choose the number of decimal places to display a number to. 

Lecture 4  Article  
I refer to Standard Index Form in the video as it is known as this in the UK. You may also know this as Science Notation (Hence it being Sci mode!) 

Lecture 5  01:54  
How can the calculator present numbers in standard from 9science notation)? It also can round the number for you. 

Lecture 6  01:42  
If you press down when you access SET UP, you will see a second menu, with the ability to refine features such as the screen's contrast, or add frequency to your STAT mode functions. 

Quiz 1  2 questions  
Test your knowledge of the SETUP menu. 

Section 3: Indices and Logarithms  
Lecture 7  02:27  
There are several buttons available to deal with numbers with powers. We explore the input any power button and the reciprocal button. 

Lecture 8  01:40  
You should notice a button which looks like this...() on the right hand side. This is the best button to use when inputting negative numbers, rather than the subtract button. The button itself suggest you can put brackets/parentheses around the negative sign. This is essential when raising negative numbers. For example 6² will give you the answer 36 (6)² will give you the answer 36. If you wanted the square of the number negative 6, the second result is correct. The calculator will prioritise powers before negatives, so be careful. 

Lecture 9  02:46  
There are two buttons that enable you to input logarithms, one is more traditional whilst one capitalises on the textbook display of the calculator. 

Lecture 10  Article  
You can change the standard log button from using the default base of 10. 

Lecture 11  02:01  
The Natural logarithm (ln) and Euler's number (e) are inverse functions. This lectures uses the calculator to explore the relationship. 

Quiz 2  3 questions  
How well do you know the log functions? 

Section 4: The Trigonometric Functions  
Lecture 12  03:31  
Exploring Sin, Cos and Tan and how to obtain the reciprocal functions Sec, Cosec and Cot. 

Lecture 13  00:37  
A breif look at where to find the hyperbolic functions.

I have been teaching mathematics for over seven years and am excited about teaching students how to get more out of using technology for learning, specifically their calculator. I started The Calculator Guide, a growing collection of videos and resources in February 2015 and am happy to be developing courses online and on Udemy.
I have recently completed an MSc in Mathematics Education where my dissertation examined students perceptions and knowledge of a Natural Display Calculator and explored new ways of using the calculator to help students and teachers.
