2-hour Sunday Sessions with the experts

The Magic of Math and Science… and the Math and Science of Magic

Magic captures the imagination and confounds the mind. How did they do it? Where did it go? Is that lady in the box he just sawed in half okay? The reality is, magic is a misdirect… an illusion... a sleight of hand. But math and science are not! They are real and very powerful. How can you capture the awe of magic while helping students unlock the power of math and science?

This session will explore demonstrations that have worked for teachers to do just that. Come enjoy some brand new demonstrations and some tried and true that capture students’ imaginations and get them asking: “Why did that happen? Can you do it again? How does it work?” … questions every teacher dreams students will ask. This session will feature five teachers that will absolutely reveal their tricks and will certainly give you a taste of the magic of math and science.

Presenters:

Jackie Bonneau, Massachusetts Academy for Math and Science, Worcester, Massachusetts

Ray Lesniewski, Jones Preparatory High School, Chicago, Illinois

Jeff Lukens, T³™ National Instructor, Sioux Falls, South Dakota

Developing Deeper Conceptual Understanding to Prepare for the ACT® Exam

Students who only excel at procedural fluency, memorizing steps and formulas, will have a tough time on the math section of the redesigned ACT® exam. What is needed for success? … A deeper understanding of the concepts. Explore how the strategic use of TI technology contributes to student learning and demonstration of knowledge on the ACT® Exam.

  • Get tips for integrating TI-84 Plus or TI-Nspire™ technology throughout your lessons to help your students understand the math concepts assessed on the ACT® Exam
  • Learn about the key areas of focus on the revised ACT® Exam

March 10 | 8:30 – 10:30 a.m. | Marriott, Third Floor, Grand Ballroom VII/VIII

Getting Started With STEM and Coding Camps and Clubs

As demand for STEM careers continues to increase, schools are scrambling to find ways to help their students learn about coding, engineering, and other STEM-related fields. A great way to expose students to these principles is through after-school clubs and summer camps, as well as during post-exam time. TI has worked with teachers around the country to help them bring coding and STEM to students who may have otherwise never been exposed. This session will introduce a how-to approach from teachers who have used TI technology to engage students in STEM.

March 10 | 8:30 – 10:30 a.m. | Marriott, Third Floor, Grand Ballroom IX/X

Mathematics Teaching Strategies to Inspire Educators and Engage Students
