Teaching Rates of Change From Algebra Through Calculus
Speakers: Vicki Carter, Corey Boby
Technology Proficiency Level: All
The AP* Calculus course requires students to have an in-depth understanding of rate of change. However, the foundation of the concept of rate of change should be introduced to students early in their mathematics education. Students’ understanding of rate of change should evolve all the way from middle school up to and including calculus.

In this webinar, experts serving on the AP* Calculus Development Committee and Readers for the AP* Calculus exam will focus on using TI technology – both the TI-84 Plus family of graphing calculators and TI-Nspire™ technology – to demonstrate how to:
  • Explore rate of change using numbers, tables, graphs and equations
  • Investigate and model applications of rate of change using TI-technology
  • Appropriately integrate technology to enhance student understanding of rate of change at various levels

Developing a Budget for a Grant Proposal
Speakers: Jen Cezar, Doris Teague
Technology Proficiency Level: All
Once the goals and objectives have been developed for a grant proposal, it is time to make projections about the future of the grant and the short-and-long-term outcomes that are expected – and what this might cost.

Budget costs should be in direct proportion to grant expectations. The budget provides the financial picture of how the grant funds would help to accomplish the goals and objectives listed in the proposal. It should reflect all of the various aspects of the grant: who will be working on the grant; travel expenses; materials, supplies and equipment needed, etc. It will include all expenditures of cash and, if needed for the proposal, all in-kind services.

In this session, the presenters will:
  • Describe typical budget development ideas devices
  • Highlight different types of financial documents often required for grant proposals
  • Show an example of a typical budget and reasons behind including expenditures in key areas
This is the third webinar in a three-part series on grant writing. In case you missed the first two webinars, focused on funding resources and preparing a needs statement, you can watch them on-demand.

How Likely …? Sampling Distributions and the Central Limit Theorem
Speakers: Diane Broberg, Jeff McCalla
Technology Proficiency Level: All
Many statistical investigations revolve around the question “How likely could this event occur by chance?” Understanding patterns in sampling distributions of sampling means and in particular the Central Limit Theorem can help students answer this question in many contexts. TI technology can be a powerful tool to help students see and interact with these patterns.

In this webinar, presenters will:
  • Show how to create and display sampling distributions of sample means
  • Use activities that help students discover patterns in sampling distributions of sample means
  • Demonstrate TI technology tools that calculate probabilities involving normal distributions
  • Discuss related AP* questions
Presenters will utilize both TI-84 Plus CE and TI-Nspire™ handheld devices during the webinar.
