Frisbee Golf Equations

Activity Overview

In this coding activity for the TI-84 Plus CE Python, students will create a frisbee golf game, using Python and mathematics.


  • Use variables to store values
  • Use the randint() function to generate random numbers.
  • Use the print() function to display
  • Use a while loop to repeat code.
  • Solve one step equations with rational solutions. (May adjust for integers or positive numbers only.  See teacher note on step 6)
  • Solve multi-step equations with rational solutions. (May skip.  See teacher note on step 20.)
  • Use substitution to verify a value is a solution to an equation.

About the Lesson

In this project, you will create a frisbee golf game.  The drawing and animation code have already been written for you in the “GOLFTEMP.8xv” file.  You will write the code to generate various forms of equations. You will also write the code to display the equation and calculate the answer.  When playing the game, each equation solved correctly will earn you a new frisbee.  How skilled are you at Frisbee Golf?

Note: This lesson requires the use of TI-84 Plus CE Python technology and the additional ti_draw.8xv App Var which is available in the OS and Apps bundle version 5.7 for the handheld.
