About the Lesson

This lesson involves gathering temperature data simultaneously with two probes-one measuring Fahrenheit and the other Celsius.
As a result, students will:

  • Become familiar with TI-Nspire CX technology and the DataQuest application.
  • Use two Temperature Probes to make measurements.
  • Use a graph to make conclusions about the experiment.
