Education Technology
Students explore the relationship between graphs and equations, sketch linear and simple non-linear graphs and solve linear equations. They find the distance between two points, midpoint and gradient of a line segment located on a Cartesian plane. Students apply index laws to numerical expressions with integer indices, apply the index laws to variables and express numbers in scientific notation. Students apply the distributive law to the expansion of algebraic expressions, including binomials, and collect like terms where appropriate.

Linear and non-linear relationships

Standard ACMNA296

Graph simple non-linear relations with and without the use of digital technologies and solve simple related equations

Activity: Leap Frog

This classic puzzle requires all the frogs on the left side of the pond to reach the right side and vice versa. How many moves does it take to solve the puzzle? What if there were more frogs? Click on the frogs in this TI-Nspire document to make them move, the moves are counted automatically. Set the number of frogs on each side and start solving!

Standard ACMNA296

Graph simple non-linear relations with and without the use of digital technologies and solve simple related equations

Activity: Towering Mathematics

The classic "Tower of Hanoi" problem involves moving discs of different sizes amongst three columns with the restrictions that large discs can’t be placed on small discs and discs can only be moved one at a time. The challenge is to move all the discs from one column to another. This activity requires students to solve this problem and to find a relationship between the number of moves and the number of discs. The TI-Nspire file contains a virtual Tower of Hanoi.
