CBR 2™

Features Summary

The CBR 2 motion sensor is TI's answer to an easy, affordable data collection device! Designed for teachers who want their students to collect and analyze real-world motion data, such as distance, velocity and acceleration. Great for algebra through calculus and statistics, physical science and physics.

USB Plug-and-Collect

The CBR 2 motion detector plugs into TI-Nspire™ learning handhelds and TI-84 Plus family calculators using the USB CBR-to-calculator cable.Using the CBR 2 and the newest TI-Nspire application, Vernier DataQuest™, students can kinesthetically explore motion and graphing with the "Motion Match" feature.

They simply plug in the CBR 2 and watch the Vernier DataQuest app launch automatically.
Once they choose "Motion Match," challenge your students to match the graph by walking back and forth using the CBR 2 motion detector.
Students enjoy changing their position and speed as they attempt to get the perfect match.

Students can also begin collecting data immediately using their TI-84 Plus family calculator. (Vernier EasyData™ App required). The device will automatically launch the app and begin displaying the current distance reading. Also select from several easy-to-use activities that are already built-in.
