Catalyzing Change in High School Mathematics
Speakers: Gail Burrill, Jeremy Zelkowski
Technology Proficiency Level: All
Why is NCTM’s “Catalyzing Change ...” an important document, and what does it mean for us as teachers?

In this webinar, we will:
  • Explore the messages in “Catalyzing Change ...” in the context of what we teach and to whom
  • Consider how technology can help us make the content in algebra and functions a reality for all students
  • Examine what statistical ideas are critical to help all students make sense of the world in which they live

Attendees of the live webinar will be entered into a drawing for free registration to the 2020 Teachers Teaching with Technology™ International Conference (T³IC). (See drawing rules.)

IB® Math Curriculum Topic 3: Geometry and Trigonometry
Speakers: Daniel Wilkie
Technology Proficiency Level: All

“Geometry and Trigonometry” is Topic 3 in both of the new IB® math courses, “Applications and Interpretation” and “Analysis and Approaches.” The webinar focuses on the changes to Geometry and Trigonometry within the new courses and will help prepare you with resources to teach this topic.

Presenter will:

  • Provide an overview of the Geometry and Trigonometry subtopics in all four IB® math courses
  • Highlight ready-to-use lessons available on the Texas Instruments IB® Resources website for this topic
  • Demonstrate a Geometry and Trigonometry sample activity using TI-84 Plus CE and TI-Nspire™ CX II graphing calculators

Making Mathematical Connections Across a Vertical Curriculum
Speakers: Kim Schelderup, Lynn Adsit, Kim McFadden
Technology Proficiency Level: All
Students can make mathematical connections across topics and grade levels by solving a problem from a previous course using new content they have recently learned, or they can modify how they set up a problem and compare the solutions for both starting points. Using the same problem again can provide students with a vertically integrated curriculum and a unified view of mathematics.

Join us to take a journey through middle and high school mathematics curriculum by focusing on one rich problem.

Algebra Through Calculus: Piecewise Functions and Graphs
Speakers: Vicki Carter, Anthony Record
Technology Proficiency Level: All
Ultimately, on the AP® Calculus exam, students are expected to work with both expressions and graphs of piecewise functions. For example, continuity and differentiability are topics that rely heavily on the analysis of a piecewise function. Often students are given the graph of an accumulation function which is represented by a piecewise function and asked to provide characteristics of the antiderivative.

The presenters will utilize both TI-84 Plus CE and TI-Nspire™ graphing calculators during the webinar.

Modeling Mathematical Data From The Climate Reality Project®
Speakers: Tom Reardon
Technology Proficiency Level: All
Join Tom Reardon as he shares learnings from The Climate Reality Project® Core Leadership training with former vice president Al Gore. Come explore how your students can model the most current data about climate change, including its causes and consequences, and discover the correlations among various sets of data.

This content is appropriate for mathematics students from grade eight through college. Both TI-84 Plus CE and TI-Nspire™ technology will be used.

TI-Innovator™ Rover as a Learning Tool in the Math Classroom
Speakers: Brad Posnanski, Paul Alves
Technology Proficiency Level: All
The TI-Innovator™ Rover provides students opportunities to engage concretely with concepts in geometry and analytic geometry. But what other mathematical concepts can we explore with this technology? This session will explore activities and tasks that may stretch your thinking about what can be done with Rover.

The presenters will show how this technology can go beyond reinforcing the math that has been covered in class. Both TI-84 Plus CE and TI-Nspire™ technology will be used.

Improving Students’ IB® Mathematical Explorations
Speakers: Daniel Wilkie
Technology Proficiency Level: All

The IB® Mathematical Exploration, or Internal Assessment, is an important opportunity for your students to earn points that can relieve the pressure of their final exam. But what sets a good Mathematical Exploration paper apart from the rest? The presenter will share the makings of a strong Mathematical Exploration and what role Texas Instruments (TI) technology can play in it.

Join this webinar to explore:

  • The guidelines and rubric for a Math Exploration
  • Expectations for the Math Exploration and how technology fits into them
  • Samples of good and not-so-good Math Exploration papers with and without TI technology
