In this activity, students will analyze data using Newton's Law of Heating and an exponential equation. Asks students to make connections between Newton's Law of Heating and the exponential equation.
Before the Activity
Students should be familiar with finding regressions on the calculator, and should also have some background knowledge of exponential functions.
During the Activity
While students begin work on the activity sheet, the teacher should send the lists to students via TI-Navigator.
(If not using TI-Navigator, students may work through the entire activity.)
Note that there are two versions of the worksheet, one for TI-Navigator and one for regular classroom use.
After the Activity
Have the students write up their Turkey Data Lab on TI-interactive.
