Marriott Ballroom 5 (Marriott Downtown)
Lead Speaker:
John H. Lamb

Participants will experience a science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) activity, implemented with students and preservice and in-service teachers, that uses a TI-84, a Calculator Based Ranger, and a computer to generate a trigonometric function modeling the effect of gravity and friction on a ball traveling on a curved surface. Handouts will be available.

Presentation Format: 9-12 Gallery Workshop
Grade Band Audience: Preservice and Inservice, 9 to 12
