Red Ribbon Week TI-Nspire Door

So if you haven’t heard, it’s Red Ribbon Week, which is a time for students to celebrate a drug free lifestyle. It’s observed at many high schools across America, including the one I work at. For 2011, the theme of Red Ribbon is “Free to Be Drug Free.” Part of Red Ribbon Week at our school is a door decorating contest. With no prompting from me, my 5th hour Pre-Calculus class decided to turn the door into a TI-Nspire CX. I thought it was pretty funny, but also pretty clever, so I’m including a picture. Note the slogan, “Do Math, Not Meth” and the working ON/OFF switch that lit up the display with Christmas lights. The judges seemed impressed too, naming this the winning door.
