Stuff to do after the AP exam during AP week...

I posted this exactly 1 year ago on the ap-calc listserv, thought peeps might like it still:
I do a movie marathon based on nick names for the TI calculators we made up over the years:

TI-7X = Robot, "Lost in Space" (org)
TI-80 = Robbie The Robot, "Forbidden Planet"
TI-81 = OB1, "Star Wars IV"
TI-82 = Kaatu, "The Day the Earth Stood Still" (org)
TI-83 = Ziggie, "Quantum Leap" (tv pilot movie)
TI-84 = Jashua, "War Games"
TI-85 = Johnny5, "Short Circuit"
TI-86 = Spock, "Star Trek: The Voyage Home"
TI-89 = Hal, "2001 A Space Odyssey"
TI-92 = Colossus, "The Forbin Project"
TI-Voyager = 7of9, "Star Trek: Voyager" (tv ep)

I haven't decided what to name the TI-Nspire, so I will be showing films
from the following list this year:

TI-Nspire = Dr. Neville, "Omega Man" or the newer "I Am Legend"
Dr. StrangeLove, "Dr. Strange Love"
Dr. Doctor Zhivago, "Doctor Zhivago "
Dr. Zaius, "Planet of the Apes"
Taylor, "Planet of the Apes"
Thorn, "Soylent Green"

Of course, there's always "Stand and Deliver."
Actually, I caved in this year and am showing the Star Trek Trilogy remastered for DVD (ST II, III and IV)! This is one big story arc based on the original Star Trek episode "Space Seed." After this I do a final project involving SAGE, Octave or R.
