T³™ Workshops and free, on-demand T³™ Webinars explore methods for integrating the Building Concepts content and effective instructional practices with TI-Nspire™ technology in middle grades math classrooms.
T³™ Workshops explore methods for integrating Building Concepts in Mathematics content, instructional practices and TI-Nspire™ technology into the scope and sequence of middle grades curriculum.
In this video, math teachers Michelle Rinehart, Katie England and Dan Ilaria explore the unique qualities of Building Concepts professional development. As Rinehart explains: “Teachers will experience the mathematics hands on. So, they will solve problems. They will explain their reasoning to others. They will critique the reasoning of others. They will really model all of the mathematical practices that we would want our students to be doing.”
TI Building Concepts utilizes the interactive functionality of TI-Nspire™ CX technology to engage students in meaningful mathematical experiences that enable them to visualize and connect key concepts.
The TI-Nspire™ CX platform supports teaching strategies that accelerate understanding of complex mathematic concepts. >>
