Mixing up Math and Science

Technology: TI-84 Plus family, TI-Nspire™ Technology
Speakers: Curtis Brown, Jeff Lukens

Color theory can be a fun and effective way to mix some science into your middle grades mathematics classroom.

Whether you’re using TI-84 Plus CE or TI-Nspire™ CX technology, join us to explore a colorful and engaging application of ratios. This session will focus on:

  • Exploring the additive property of light (RGB) and the subtractive property of pigment (CMY), with a comparison of mixing colors in light or in pigment
  • Examining how ratios work and comparing ratios within the context of mixing paint colors
  • Applying students’ understanding of ratios to scale drawings while exploring how STEM concepts can be used in art and painting
