Technology: TI-Nspire™ Technology
Topic: Teaching Resources
Speakers: Mike Cimino, Jeff Lukens

What do superheroes, zombies, and forensics have in common?

As the latest STEM Behind Hollywood themes, they give students a chance to use TI-Nspire™ technology to solve problems just like real-life scientists with concepts from their favorite movies and TV shows. Explore Science Friction!, an activity that lets students play a villain’s henchman to explore force, friction, rate, and Newton’s Third Law of Motion. In Zombie Apocalypse 2: The Humans Strike Back, students investigate the hypothesis that elevating pH could prevent people from becoming undead. In Body of Evidence, students use interactive data plots from a simulated death investigation to establish the victim’s identity. See how STEM Behind Hollywood lessons and TI-Nspire™ technology support research-proven strategies that accelerate mastery of complex STEM concepts. (2014)
