This workshop is designed for mathematics educators who want to learn to leverage TI-84 Plus CE technology skills to drive student success on the ACT® test by exploring released test items. Educators will cover the main elements of the ACT® test, discuss strategies for helping students to better understand key topics, and emphasize techniques for teaching with TI-84 Plus CE technology.

By the end of the workshop, participants should feel comfortable with:

  • Leveraging the TI-84 Plus CE graphing calculator for exam questions in key categories such as Number & Quantity, Algebra, Functions, Geometry, and Statistics & Probability
  • Highlighting the key content areas on the ACT® test and adjusting mathematics instruction accordingly
