STEM Behind Sports

Technology: TI-84 Plus Family, TI-Nspire™ Technology
Topic: Teaching Resources
Speakers: Erick Archer, Curtis Brown

Texas Instruments opens a new series of activities investigating the STEM Behind Sports. Each activity challenges your students to think critically about practical applications of science, technology, engineering and math.

This webinar will introduce two new activities:

  • First, tackle a graphical investigation of the success of a winning field goal and confirm the investigation algebraically. Consider the rush of the defense and the length of the kick while investigating activities appropriate for middle grades and algebra I up through and including algebra II and pre-calculus using the TI-84 CE.
  • Next, compete in a virtual triathlon, using TI-Nspire™ CX technology, in an effort to understand the concepts of work, energy and power at a physical science level.
