Workshop overview

This workshop is designed for educators interested in introducing coding to their students using TI-Nspire™ technology. Building upon the lessons from TI’s 10 Minutes of Code, the workshop introduces the basics of coding principles including logic, selection statements and loops.

A focus will be on coding topics which will reinforce student understanding of math and science curriculum concepts. Participants will be comfortable with using TI-Basic and transferrable skills to move to the next stage in coding.

By the end of the workshop, participants will be comfortable with:

  • Starting a new program, writing a program to display text, and running the program
  • Using variables to hold values and store results in those variables
  • Showing the results of stored computations
  • Writing statements using If and conditions
  • Using compound conditions with the relational and the logical operators
  • Determining errors in a program

During this workshop, participants will learn to:

  • Use the TI-Basic program editor to create and run programs
  • Use simple editing features to insert and delete entries or lines of code
  • Evaluate expressions and store them as variables
  • Recognize programing features including conditions, relational operators, logical operators, and simple and compound conditions
  • Perform the basic steps for debugging a simple program
