It All Makes Sense: Connecting Mathematics With Financial Literacy
When: Tuesday, May 5, 2020 | 7 p.m. Central time
Technology: TI-84 Plus family, TI-Nspire™ CX family
Presenter: Lindsey Gold, Mike Houston
Discover activities to get your students excited and thinking about the mathematics they’re learning in the classroom by applying real-world financial concepts to current mathematical tasks.
Join this webinar to explore financial literacy using both TI-84 Plus CE and TI-Nspire™ CX II graphing calculators.
Presenters will demonstrate how to incorporate financial literacy into mathematics by:
- Using spreadsheets as an algebraic tool for decision making
- Suggestions for activities using TI-84 Plus and TI-Nspire™ graphing calculators
- Writing functions that describe a relationship between two quantities
- Using units as a way to understand problems and guide the solution of multi-step problems; choosing and interpreting units consistently in formulas; and choosing and interpreting the scale and the origin in graphs and data displays (if time permits)
