Real-World Math with Vernier

Real-World Math with Vernier: Connecting Math and Science contains 32 activities that explore real-world mathematical applications of concepts from algebra through calculus.


Real-World Math with Vernier includes 32 activities covering concepts such as linear, quadratic, and periodic functions; statistics; systems of equations; and many more. The activities found in the printed book are written for use with TI-Nspire™ technology.

Real-World Math with Vernier is a revision and compilation of the earlier Texas Instruments publications Real-World Math with the CBL 2 and LabPro and Real-World Math Made Easy, and the Vernier publication Real-World Math with Computers.
