Create Apps for the TI NSpire, for browsers, and for iBooks from Geometry Expressions
TI NSpire app
Geometry Expressions lets you create apps for the TI-Nspire, for iBooks as well as for browsers running on tablets, smartphones and computers.

You can export a single Geometry Expressions model in any of the three formats:
  1. HTML5/JavaScript (for browser apps)
  2. Dashboard Widgets (for iBooks)
  3. Lua app (for TI-Nspire) 

Browser app

A variety of different apps can be viewed on the Euclid's Muse website

Watch Videos on creating browser apps.

And a video on the creation of Lua apps for the TI-Nspire.

How to... Correlate a point's motion to a graph 

First create the graph, in this case we have used a piecewise function for Y(X).

Now add a point and use the same function for its y-coordinate (this time as a function of t).

Now set the limits for the parameter t to match the limits of the x coordinate of the graph.

Export.  The resulting app may be viewed (and .gx file downloaded) here.

Problem of the Month
parabola circle   
Point C lies on a parabola with vertex A and focus B.
 
Show that the tangent and normal to the parabola at C pass through the intersection of line AB and a circle through C centered at B.

An interactive app which lets you play with this problem is  here.
