This ten-part series presents an impressive array of real-world applications of algebra, including an analysis of the 2008 mortgage crisis, calculation of a car’s speed determined by evidence left at an accident scene, and a mathematical examination of New Guinea’s 1998 earthquake and tsunami.

Each video includes graphing calculator applications that use the Texas Instruments TI-Nspire calculator, with all keystrokes clearly shown.

Each show is approximately 20 minutes long.
