Using a CBR and TI-Nspire the student will generate data. The absolute value function should be the best function to model this data. The student must manipulate the coefecients in order to fit the data. The student must answer additional questions based on the multiple representations of the function.
Before the Activity
If the students have not used the CBR with the TI-Nspire, you might need to give them a practice run.
During the Activity
See the attached documents for directions and additional questions.
After the Activity
The answers are provided for most of the questions. Some answers will vary based on student data.
