Workshop Overview

Middle grades science educators who are just beginning to use TI-Nspire™ technology, or want to learn more to drive student success on the Science EOC exam, will learn the basics of teaching with the TI-Nspire™ CX handheld and TI-Nspire™ Teacher Software. A focus of the workshop will be how to help students better understand topics on the 8th Grade Science EOC exam.


This workshop immerses middle grades science teachers in hands-on explorations that demonstrate effective classroom use of technology covering a variety of topics across life, earth and physical science. Investigate simulations using TI-Nspire™ documents from Science Nspired, and learn to use the Vernier DataQuest™ application for TI-Nspire™ technology and
TI-Nspire™ Lab Cradle to identify patterns for modeling and predicting science phenomena.
