Published on 10/01/2011

Activity Overview

This lesson takes a classic optimization problem and uses the dynamic linking capabilities to visualize the problem in multiple representations: diagramatic, geometric, graphic, numeric.

Objectives

  • Students will use multiple linked graphical, geometric (2D and 3D), and numeric representations to model a classic optimization problem.

About the Lesson

The Box_Problem_Exploration_Lesson.tns document takes a classic optimization problem and uses the dynamic linking capabilities of TI-Nspire to enact the problem in multiple representations: diagramatic, geometric, graphic, numeric. The problem scenario is illustrated on the title screen shown at the right.
