- TI-84 Plus CE graphing calculator, TI-SmartView™ CE Emulator Software for the TI-84 Plus Family and TI-Innovator™ Hub

A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.

During registration, you will choose from one of three sessions during each timeslot.

**Session 1 - Learning to Code With TI Graphing Technology**

- This session is designed for educators interested in introducing coding to their students using TI-84 Plus CE or TI-Nspire™ CX handhelds
- Building upon the lessons from the 10 Minutes of Code, the session introduces the basics of coding principles including logic, selection statements and loops, etc.
- The principles of coding will be connected to many concepts in the math and science curriculum to increase student understanding
- By the end, you should be comfortable with using TI-Basic and the transferrable skills to move to the next stage in coding

**Session 2 - Getting Started With TI-84 Plus CE Technology (Calculator and Software)**

- How is this member of the TI-84 Plus family different than previous TI-84 family graphing calculators?
- Overview of the TI-84 Plus CE color graphing calculator, basic computation and graphing and functionality
- Effective use of TI-SmartView™ CE Emulator Software

**Session 3 - Supporting Student Learning**

- What are the elements of a rich task, as described in NCTM’s
*Principles to Action?* - Explore tasks that promote the growth mindset
- Review sample tasks and discuss the key components that push student thinking

**Session 4 - Learning to Code With the TI-Innovator™ Hub (TI-84 Plus CE and TI-Nspire™ Technology)**

- This session is designed for educators interested in introducing coding to their students using the TI-Innovator™ Hub with TI-Launchpad™ Board
- Extend the lessons seen in the 10 Minutes of Code with TI-Innovator™ technology to excite students in learning the code to control the TI-Innovator™ Hub and the built-in sensors, including light and sound
- Engage your students with the latest technology, preparing them for the next stage to explore real-world STEM applications

**Session 5 - Exploring Algebra Topics With TI-84 Plus CE Technology (Calculator and Software)**

- Topics include Linear Functions, Linear Systems, Functions and Relations, Quadratic Functions, Exponential Functions, Radical Functions, Probability, Rational Functions

**Session 6 - Orchestrating Effective Discussions in Your Classroom**

- Good questions can be hard to ask …
- This session will address strategies to promote effective and engaging discussions that give all students a voice in your classroom
- A focus will be on emphasizing NCTM’s
*Five Practices for Orchestrating Productive Math Discussions* - This session models rich tasks using in-depth discussions and Mathematical Teaching Practices, with an emphasis on task analysis, questioning strategies and essential TI technology skills to enhance student learning

**Session 7 - Making Math and Science Meaningful With the TI-Innovator™ Hub and TI-Innovator™ Rover**

- This session is designed for teachers interested in introducing the TI-Innovator™ Hub with TI-Innovator™ Rover to their students
- This session will highlight lessons that can include topics that will engage your students in new and exciting ways such as:
- The relationship between distance, rate and time
- Designing and measuring a segmented path

**Session 8 - Exploring Statistics Topics with TI-84 Plus CE Technology (Calculator and Software)**

- Interpreting Univariate Data Represent data with dot plots; compare center and spread of data sets; use the mean and standard deviation to fit a data set into a normal distribution
- Interpreting Bivariate Data Represent bivariate data on a scatter plot, describe the relationship, and interpret the slope and intercept of a linear model in the context of the data
- Conditional Probability Use independence and conditional probability to interpret data; use the rules of probability to compute probabilities of compound events
- Making Inferences and Decisions Understand and evaluate random processes underlying statistical experiments

**Session 9 - Eliciting Evidence of Student Understanding**

- How do you know when students are ready to move on?
- We will explore methods for gauging student comprehension and addressing misconceptions

**Session 10 - STEM Camps, Clubs and Classroom Projects With the TI-Innovator™ Hub**

- This session is designed for math and science teachers interested in introducing STEM projects in the classroom or in summer camps with the TI-Innovator™ Hub with TI-Launchpad™ Board and either TI-Nspire™ CX technology or TI-84 Plus CE technology
- Guide students on the path to building their own STEM projects with activities that challenge them to address current real-world issues
- Understand the science behind the greenhouse effect, and other science principles, and use math, computer programming and engineering to design and build models to solve current problems

**Session 11 - Exploring Pre-Calculus and Calculus Topics With TI-84 Plus CE Technology (Calculator and Software)**

- Modeling Various Functions – statistical regression, choosing the best model, interpolating/extrapolating information
