Review the Teacher Resources and Calculator Note PDF files.
Make copies of the Student Activity PDF file for your class.
Transfer the program file to the student calculators using TI Connect™, a connectivity cable and unit-to-unit cables
During the Activity
Choose a small region on the boundary of the Mandelbrot Set and create a graph of that smaller region.
Distribute the student activity sheets
Follow the procedures as outlined
After the Activity
As a class, review student answers, discussing questions that appeared to be more challenging, and re-teaching as needed.
