2023 Virtual T³IC: AP® Calculus: Making Particle Motion Come Alive With the TI-Nspire™ CX II Graphing Calculator

When: Saturday, Sept. 30, 2023
Technology: TI-Nspire™ CX II technology
Presenters: Karen Sleno, Vicki Carter

This session will explore how TI-Nspire™ CX technology can promote a deep understanding of derivatives as they relate to particle motion.

Participants will create and analyze graphs of position or velocity functions, will make hypotheses based on the graph’s behavior, and will learn to justify their findings. A discussion of particle motion as it has appeared on past AP® Calculus exam questions will also be included.
