      Thank you for the great app suggestions, Emma! I am sending my son a Nexus 7 tablet as a surprise back to school gift and I wanted to preload a few essential apps like Mint and the Graphing Calculator. I included a fun app called DISH Remote Access as well. He knows that I work for DISH and he came to me asking if I knew of a better way then cable to get TV service in his dorm. They won’t let him install a DISH so I gave her the next best thing… the use of my DISH. He can use the DISH app to watch his favorite channels AND DVR recordings right from our DVR at home. I think that is a better option for him then getting cable service; this way, he will even be able to take it outside to relax on the quad.

    3. Hair color doesn't really matter to me and I think it shouldn't matter to anyone. I think it's horrible we still buy into these ideas that blondes are dumb and you need to talk slower to them. I also hate when people treat brunettes like crap because that's what happens most of the time…

      F(x) = x^2-5x+6 and g(x) = sin x

      is it tedious to solve this equation?
      NO there is a rescue operation given by the application

      Solving these two equations will require 3 pages of solution while it doesn't add to the conceptual understanding of the problem, if graphs are used, it would have been solved in few lines and would have contributed in better understanding of a function. The application Mathrena ( helps in plotting accurate graphs and find point of intersection of the equations. Mathrena ( also find the roots of the equation f(x) and g(x).

      The handy nature of the Mathrena brings immense help to those who find it difficult to plot the graph manually, same arises with the graphical properties of a function. It was difficult to calculate the Eigen value and vectors of a matrix but through this application one can solve them in seconds. The application has helped to leverage the concept to Mathematics so that students spend more time in understanding the application rather than on tedious equations.
