GC Skills Checklist.pdf lists does exactly what it says on the tin! The skills that it lists are typical of what one might need for tackling the majority of Secondary School Maths courses with graphic calculator confidence.
GC Skills Test 1.pdf and GC Skills Test 2.pdf are two "tests" that can be used to assess whether students do indeed possess the skills covered on the Checklist. Test 1 covers straightforward skills, whilst Test 2 is more problem solving in nature.
GC Skills Test Answers.pdf are there to protect your sanity!

The program requires you to enter your birth date and the current date of interest. It then graphically displays the state of each of your cycles of energy.

Mastermind.zip Mastermind
This zip file contains 2 program files, both required to run the program Mastermind.
This program was written by Sally Crighton (currently of the Open University) and is hosted here with her permission.
The program is self explanatory and simulates the old board game of the same name where you have to guess correctly a 4 digit number.
This program can be run in both 1 player, or 2 player mode and either 3 o 4 digit numbers can be guessed.
A good program for developing students' ability to design a systematic search process!

Navigate.zip Navigate

Originally written in 1997 by MadMaths (a.k.a. Calum Stewart and Derek Simpson) the progam is hosted here with their permission.
The pdf file contains program instructions and a worksheet.
You need to install the progam and the 3 image files onto your calculator [if you have a TI83+ or TI84+, I'd recommend you GROUP these 4 files together.]
This program is the definitive resource for practising bearings ... and is great fun as well!
