TI-Nspire - Geometry

View:  
Sorted by:  

Points & Lines Menu in the TI-Nspire Geometry App

On the TI-Nspire, begin a new document and add a Geometry page (press [ON]→New Document→Add Geometry). The Line, Segment, Vector, and Ray tools are all drawn using nearly identical methods. Here are the [more…]

How to Use the TI-Nspire Measurement Tools

Press [MENU]→Measurement to access the TI-Nspire Measurement menu. On this menu, you will find the Length, Area, and Angle tools, which enable you to measure angles, hide the scale, and change the default [more…]

TI-Nspire Shapes Menu in the Geometry Application

Within the TI-Nspire Shapes menu, you find the Circle, Triangle, Rectangle, Polygon, and Regular Polygon tools. Here are the steps to use the Circle tool: [more…]

Dynamically Explore Constructions on the TI-Nspire

One of TI-Nspire’s most powerful features is its ability to grab and move objects, enabling you to observe changes happening dynamically in real time. This is especially true of constructions, including [more…]

Perform Calculations and Using the TI-Nspire Attach Feature

Calculations can be used to make sense of the measurements that were taken. The TI-Nspire Attach feature is a handy way to display the results of the calculations and measurements. You can use these tools [more…]

Measure Length and Customize Scale on the TI-Nspire

With TI-Nspire's Length Measurement tool, you can measure the perimeter of a polygon, the circumference of a circle, the length of a segment, or the distance between any two points. For this example, you [more…]

Use the Rotation Tool on the TI-Nspire Transformation Menu

The TI-Nspire Transformation menu provides five different transformations: Symmetry, Reflection, Translation, Rotation, and Dilation. The Rotation tool is a good choice for creating a triangle with specific [more…]

How to Label Objects on the TI-Nspire

The TI-Nspire allows you to add labels to any object. Use these steps to label the vertices of an equilateral triangle, A, B, and C: [more…]

How to Move and Resize Objects on the TI-Nspire

You can move or resize any object on the TI-Nspire. However, you face some constraints based on the type of drawing you have constructed. For example, consider an equilateral triangle. This object can [more…]

How to Select Multiple Objects on the TI-Nspire

You may want to select multiple objects within the TI-Nspire Geometry application for two reasons. First, multiple selected objects can be translated. Second, all selected objects can be deleted by pressing [more…]

How to Change an Object's Attributes on the TI-Nspire

Besides changing the attributes of a graph, you can also change the attributes of a geometry object on the IT-Nspire. Press [MENU]→Actions→Attributes to invoke the Attributes command. Then, move to the [more…]

Use the TI-Nspire Lock and Pin Features

The TI-Nspire Geometry application offers Lock and Pin features. If a point is pinned, it can’t be moved unless it is unpinned. Other geometric objects and text can also be pinned, which is a nice feature [more…]

How to Construct Geometric Objects on the TI-Nspire

Creating a geometric construction can provide a rich mathematical experience, especially when used with the dynamic click-and-drag feature of TI-Nspire. To access the Construction menu, press [more…]

How to Use the TI-Nspire Transformation Menu

The Transformation menu provides five different transformations: Symmetry, Reflection, Translation, Rotation, and Dilation. Here’s a brief description of what four of the transformation tools can do and [more…]

How to Animate Objects on the TI-Nspire

In the Geometry application on the TI-Nspire, you can animate a point (or multiple points) on a line, ray, axis, vector, graph, segment, or circle. Assume that you want to animate point [more…]

Differences between Analytic and Geometry Objects

You have many reasons for working strictly in the TI-Nspire Graphs application or the Geometry application. Sometimes, however, it’s to your advantage to work in an environment that contains the best of [more…]

TI-Nspire Analytic Window and Area Formulas

On the TI-Nspire, you can use a mixed view with an analytic window open on a Geometry page to explore the formula for the area of a circle. You also can use the Automatic Data Capture feature to generate [more…]

How to Store Variables in Geometry on TI-Nspire

When working on the TI-Nspire, many situations might arise that require you to investigate a geometric object numerically and algebraically. Take, for example, the situation in which you want to determine [more…]
