Arithmetic Sequences

Students explore three different ways to generate a sequence on their calculator: recursively, using the sequence command (lists) and finally using the function editor. The memory locations a and d work nicely with the formula for an arithmetic sequence and make for a more dynamic and user-friendly environment.

This activity includes a video tutorial.

    Monopoly Simulation

    Students review probability as a measure of likely chance to occur, perform simulations of experiments using technology including the identification of factors that could complicate the simulation of real events, create and use a sample space to determine theoretical probabilities and expected values, all through the context of the popular board game Monopoly™.

      Word Games

      Two popular word games in one activity. Students use a program to extract letter frequencies from text and uses the data to analyse two of the most popular word games: Scrabble and Wordle. Students develop strategies for the second game and test them using the program: TIgram.

      Kicking Goals

      Watch Paul discusses the kick, we discuss the calculus and more.

      There is no doubt, a kick directly in front of goals is more likely to be successful, but where is the best place if you are near the boundary line? This activity starts with shooting for goals in soccer before heading out to the MCG and a magnificent kick from the boundary by AFL great, Paul Salmon. Did he find the best spot from where to launch his kick?

      Pet Car Alarm

      In this TI-Innovator™ STEM project, students are given the challenge to design a “smart” pet alarm that will cool the interior of a car and notify the owner if a pet has accidentally been left in a hot car.

      Midpoints

      This activity is part of the coordinate geometry series. In this activity students use the midpoint tool to explore and establish the formula for the midpoint of two points. Students then go on to explore the path of the midpoint for a fixed point and a point on a line.

      Parallel and Perpendicular

      Watch Activity Tutorial

      In this activity students watch the above video to gain an understanding or parallel and perpendicular lines in the context of coordinate geometry. After watching the video students answer a series of questions followed by a small investigation into quadrilaterals with vertices on the midpoints of a larger quadrilateral.

      Christmas Tree with the TI-84CE

      Students plot points to form the outline of a Christmas tree using the scatterplot feature of the TI-84PlusCE. Students then add lights and even a 'star' on the top of the tree.

      Euler Line

      This activity combines the result of the Circumcentre, Orthocentre and Centroid activities to locate the Euler line. The problem is explored entirely on the Cartesian plane and provides ample opportunity for students to demonstrate an understanding of perpendicular lines and midpoints, determination of equations and solutions to simultaneous equations with a purpose.

      Centroid

      This activity is aligned with the Circumcentre and Orthocentre activities forming a natural progression for the Euler line activity. Students calculate gradients, equations to lines, solve equations simultaneously and use the calculator's tools to check their answers.

      Orthocentre

      Watch Activity Tutorial

      Coordinate Geometry - Students calculate midpoints, gradients, perpendicular lines and use simultaneous equations to help determine the location of the orthocentre. A really cool property of the orthocentre is revealed in the extension component of the activity.

      Circumcentre

      Watch Activity Tutorial

      Coordinate Geometry - Students calculate gradients, perpendicular gradients, equations to lines (given point and gradient), solve simultaneous equations and calculate the distance between two points, and much more! This activity is part of a series on coordinate geometry and includes companion video tutorials and lots of extension opportunities.

      Reflections

      Watch Activity Tutorial

      Reflections in the x and y axes, the line y = x and also x = n and y = m, they're all here. The companion video helps students understand reflections and how they can be performed on the calculator. This activity includes a range of extension questions that are more conceptually demanding.

      Halloween

      Students are provided with a set of points which, when connected, produce the outline of a pumpkin and also a bat. Students plot the points and adjust the window settings to see the respective drawings.

      Exponential Decay

      Students run a simulation using M&M'S® whereby they eat each of the M&M'S with the M facing upward. Each time approximately half the remaining M&M'S get consumed. The result is exponential decay. A truly memorable and satisfying mathematics investigation!
