QLD (TI-84PlusCE): Part 2 of 3 - Tetrahedral Induction

by Texas Instruments


Part 2 of 3: Induction - students build equations visually, graphically and numerically and then prove their formula to be true for all whole numbers by Mathematical Induction. Additional questions are provided for students to practice the process of Mathematical Induction.


  • Induction
  • Tetrahedral Numbers
  • Sum
  • Cubic

About the Lesson

By building their own formula and then going on to prove the formula is true, students develop an understanding of the mathematical cycle rather than dealing with Mathematical Induction in isolation.
