About the Lesson

This "create your own" activity is designed to be student-centered, with the teacher acting as a facilitator while students work cooperatively. The time varies for this activity depending on whether the TI-Nspire document (.tns file) is provided or created by the students.

A guided lesson video (optional) is also available for this activity. The video is targeted at students and designed to help guide them through the interactive exploration and the concepts covered within. (It may also be helpful for teachers who may be using the activity for the first time.)
