# Exploring Common Core Topics in Algebra withTI-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.

## Overview

This in-person 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. A virtual workshop is also available in multiple two- or three-hour sessions.

 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.

## Areas of Focus

This workshop addresses CCSS content standards in high school algebra, with a focus on building pedagogical skills for leading discussions and engaging students in CCSS Math Practices with TI-Nspire™ technology.
