Promethean Flipchart: Algebra Applications: Earthquakes 3

An earthquake is an example of a seismic wave. A wave can be modeled with a trigonometric function. Using the TI-Nspire, students link the amplitude to an exponential function to analyze the dramatic increase in intensity resulting from minor changes to magnitude. Note: The download for this resources is the Promethean Flipchart.
