Excite your students with the mathematics surrounding motion. Using the Calculator Based Ranger (CBR 2™) with your TI-Nspire™ technology allows your students to get out of their seats and experience the mathematics involving distance and time. In particular, kinesthetic learners will see the connections between the graphs and their movements. The CBR 2 collects distance, velocity and acceleration data while connected directly to a TI calculator. The connection to the calculator is through the calculator link port. The CBR™ 2 system is an easy, affordable data-collection device. Designed for teachers who want their students to collect and analyze real-world motion data, such as distance, velocity and acceleration. Great for algebra through calculus and statistics, physical science and physics.
