Before the Activity

If you are using the EDC files, use LearningCheck Creator Software to preview and select questions from one of the practice exams.

Make sure the LearningCheck App is on all student Ti-83 or TI-84 calculators. After you have selected questions, transfer the LearningCheck EDC files to student calculators using one of these methods:

  • LearningCheck "send to device" feature with a connectivity cable and unit-to-unit cables
  • TI Connect™ , a TI Connectivity Cable, and the Unit-to-Unit Link Cable
  • TI-Navigator™ "send to class" feature (required method for TI-73 users)
  • During the Activity

    This activity is intended as a learning review. Students may work alone or in small groups to answer the questions. You may wish to circulate the room to answer students' questions.

    After the Activity

    As a class, review student answers, discussing questions that appeared to be more challenging, and re-teaching as needed.
