About the Lesson
This lesson involves students using TI-Nspire technology to analyze a graph of data representing the relationship between the environmental temperature and the resulting metabolism of an endothermic animal.
As a result, students will:
- Draw conclusions about how temperature affects metabolism.
- Compare the temperature effects on both endothermic and ectothermic animals.
