Tackling Topic 1: Numbers and Algebra in the IB® Mathematics Curriculum

When: Thursday, September 9, 2021 | 7 p.m. Central time
Technology: TI-84 Plus family, TI-Nspire™ CX technology
Presenters: Daniel Wilkie

“Numbers and Algebra” is Topic 1 in both of the IB® math courses, “Applications and Interpretation” and “Analysis and Approaches.”

This webinar focuses on the Topic 1 activities on the Texas Instruments website, like the newly updated “Compound Interest” activity, how they align to the IB® curriculum, and how you can leverage either TI-84 Plus CE or TI-Nspire™ CX II graphing calculators in your classroom.

Join this webinar to:

  • Pinpoint the Topic 1 struggles from the exam, and how to improve on those topics
  • Discuss how Topic 1 was used on the Math Exploration, and how to improve on them
  • Explore one Topic 1 activity (or two, if time permits) showing both graphing calculator platforms
