Slopes of Perpendicular Lines

Activity Overview

Students will construct perpendicular lines and then examine slopes in a table and as a scatter plot to write a function that describes the relationship.

Before the Activity

Download and print the teacher worksheet, student directions and TI-NSpire file.

During the Activity

Help students to build the perpendicular lines in the Graphs & Geometry Application.

After the Activity

Discuss the function that would match the scatter plot created on the calculator.
