Abstract: 

Graphing calculators have become a staple in the high school mathematics curriculum since their invention in 1985. These calculators have features such as integration, root finding, and plotting various mathematical functions. Therefore, graphing calculators have the ability to replace scientific calculators and be useful in higher level math courses. However, graphing calculators have limited use in university after high school due to being banned from various university courses’ exams. Our goal is to develop (in accordance to the necessary engineering standards, sustainability and safety requirements) an affordable graphing calculator for students that can be used at both the high school and university mathematics level. We will achieve our goal by designing a graphing calculator with a radio frequency remote control that can restrict certain functionality specified by the instructor during exams.

Description: 

Undergraduate Engineering students are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440.  Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem.  This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and proof of concept.
