Probability Simulations for All
Speakers: Rachael Gorsuch, Scott Keltner
Technology Proficiency Level: All
Simulation is perhaps the most effective pedagogical tool available for teaching probability, and using technology is at the heart of this kind of simulation. In this webinar, presenters will explore many examples of using simulation to teach different probability topics with TI technology.

Presenters will:
  • Explore theoretical vs. experimental probability
  • Demonstrate examples of simulations of probabilities that are difficult to compute directly
  • Share activities that will engage students in creating simulations for these difficult-to-compute probabilities

Implementing Tasks That Promote Reasoning and Problem Solving
Speakers: Jill Gough, Jennifer Wilson
Technology Proficiency Level: All
Effective teaching of mathematics facilitates discourse among learners to build shared understanding of mathematical ideas by analyzing and comparing approaches and arguments. In this webinar, presenters will discuss how one might implement and facilitate tasks that promote productive discussions to strengthen the teaching and learning of mathematics. They will explore types of tasks that encourage mathematical flexibility to show what students know in more than one way.

STEM on the Fly
Speakers: Erick Archer, Curtis Brown
Technology Proficiency Level: All
In this webinar, presenters will help you take flight! You are challenged to use math and science to take off and fly a virtual plane. You need just the right amount of velocity, but not too much, and you need just the right amount of lift to fly the plane. You can control your flaps and slats to determine the right amount of surface area for your wings.

The STEM on the Fly activity is rich in math and science. It’s a great cross-curricular lesson that will get kids pumped about flying and maybe even get them thinking about a career in aviation. This TI activity is available on both TI-84 Plus CE and TI-Nspire™ technology.

Presenters will:
  • Share a STEM Behind Cool Careers activity
  • Explore force and how it’s related to flight
  • Show the connection between the math and science of flight

The Science and Math Behind Helmet Design
Speakers: Linda Antinone, Cassie Whitecotton
Technology Proficiency Level: All
What is a concussion and what are the causes? What is the purpose of a helmet?

There is an increased awareness and concern about concussions, especially in sports. Presenters will discuss how students can use TI Nspire™ CX technology and Vernier probes to collect data to address this real world problem. They will show how to help students apply science and engineering ideas to design, evaluate, and refine a device that minimizes the force on an object during a collision.

Join this webinar to learn more about:
  • Using TI-Nspire CX™ technology and Vernier data collection probes to investigate what materials reduce the impact of force on an object
  • Analyzing data in DataQuest using different techniques: Best-fit line, modeling, area under-a -curve
  • Implementing the Next Generation Science Standards Three Dimensional Learning model: Practices, Core Ideas and Cross-Cutting Concepts
Presenters will highlight real-world examples from their work with STEM students.
