Getting Started with the TI-84 Plus Family in High School Mathematics

Designed for educators who want to learn more about the features of the TI-84 Plus family of graphing calculators, this workshop offers hands-on explorations demonstrating the effective classroom use of technology within a high school mathematics curriculum.

You’ll become familiar with the TI-84 Plus graphing calculator by working through classroom-ready activities that use the calculator to enhance student understanding and problem-solving.


This in-person workshop is available in one-, two- and three-day options to accommodate educator-specific needs. The two- and three-day workshops offer a more extensive exploration of topics. A virtual workshop is also available in multiple two- or three-hour sessions.

  • Overview of the TI-84 Plus graphing calculator, including the MathPrint™ feature and general graphing and statistical functionality.
  • Modeling and analysis of univariate data with box plots, histograms and measures of central tendency.
  • Exploration of graphing linear functions and solving linear systems graphically.
  • Additional coverage of modeling with multiple representations.
  • Exploration of interactive lessons that make connections between rate of change, linear functions and systems of linear equations.
  • Data collection and analysis with the Calculator-Based Ranger 2™ (CBR 2™) motion sensor, Vernier EasyTemp® USB temperature sensor and Vernier EasyData™ app.
  • Deeper immersion into additional technology features, with an emphasis on classroom applications and online resources.
  • Wider curriculum coverage across key areas in Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Precalculus and Statistics.
  • Opportunities for differentiation based on educators’ classroom needs.
