Workshop Overview

Designed for educators who are just beginning to use TI-Nspire™ technology, this workshop focuses on integrating key science and mathematics concepts with the TI-Nspire™ handheld and TI-Nspire™ Teacher software. Explore simulations and data-collection activities from Science Nspired and discuss integrating them into your classroom. Activities will modeled to emphasize the three-dimensional learning standards, including science and engineering practices, cross cutting concepts, and disciplinary core ideas.

By the end of the workshop, you’ll be comfortable using pre-made TI-Nspire™ documents and have basic skills with various probes and experiments, and understand the basics of TI-Nspire™ technology.

Participants will experience

  • Overview of the TI-Nspire™ handheld, including data collection with the Vernier EasyTemp® USB temperature sensor and Calculator-Based Ranger 2™ (CBR 2™) motion sensor
  • Data analysis through the development of mathematical models
  • Exploration of interactive simulations.
  • Data-collection labs with the TI-Nspire™ handheld that connect science and math
  • Mathematical modeling involving linear, exponential, power and logarithmic functions
