You may want to install the Nspire fonts for Word documents to show up correctly.

 

- I wasn't the author of this Scavenger Hunt exploration for the TI-Nspire Touchpad, but I enjoyed using it a several 2010 summer workshops. It is a Word document so it can be modified. I'm using a modified version for the TI-Nspire CAS with my freshmen physics class.

Get to know the calculator page and some of the CAS functionality with this Scavenger Hunt for AP Calculus Scavenger_Hunt_TI_Nspire_CAS_Touchpad_CalculusBird.docx or pdf

 

- Snowflake.tns is a fun file for geometry - rotational symmetry. For more details and a video, see this blog entry. My friend, Heidi from Ohio, made the file and I make a minor modification.

 

- "Gettin' the Swing" - I like this activity for AP calc-based Physics C mechanics. It allows the students to explore sinusoidal functions in a dynamic fashion. The activity ends with data collection of a pendulum. The tns file provides data in case the students collection efforts don't work out. This file was posted on http://www.timath.com/ on Dec 18, 2008. If you have string, duct tape, and racquet balls (and a CBR2) then collected data worked out quite well for my students.

 

- ExploringLogs with TI-Nspire.doc (78kB) I started writing this Word doc at the 2-day hands-on institute in Indianapolis back in Sept 2007

You may need this font so that the above files look right: TINspire.ttf

 

- demo.tns I found this file somewhere and modified it to explain what all the Nspire can do.

 

- Introducing CAS .tns - This example file is preloaded when you install the 1.7 operating system. The other preloads are available on the TI site.

 

DiscoverPowerRule.doc - worksheet to be used with a TI-Nspire CAS to help students discover the power rule for differentiating polynomials. A power rule CAS exploration.
