Exploring Common Core Topics in Algebra with TI-Nspire™ Technology


Designed for educators who need support transitioning to Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for Mathematics as they apply to a high school algebra curriculum, this workshop covers the basic features of the TI-Nspire™ CX handheld and TI-Nspire™ Teacher Software, with special emphasis on tough-to-teach algebraic concepts and new Common Core content standards.

You’ll discuss the role of technology in the Common Core Math Practices and explore dynamic, interactive algebra lessons aligned to CCSS. By the end of the workshop, you’ll be able to use TI-Nspire™ technology to deepen student understanding of key CCSS topics in algebra.


This workshop is available in one- and two-day options to accommodate educator-specific needs. The two-day workshop offers a more extensive exploration of topics.

  • Identification of main algebra support needs, with coverage of key domains and clusters in CCSS.
  • Exploration of dynamic, interactive content.
  • Introduction to CCSS Math Practices.
  • Overview of essential TI-Nspire™ technology skills.
  • Broader algebra coverage, with opportunities for differentiation based on teacher needs.
  • Deeper discussion of CCSS Math Practices.
  • Introduction to Teacher Software.
  • Additional exploration of features and resources.
