Getting Started with TI-Nspire™ Technology in Algebra

Designed for educators who are just beginning to use TI-Nspire™ technology, this workshop introduces the TI-Nspire™ handheld and TI-Nspire™ Teacher Software in the context of Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 in a high school mathematics curriculum, with some coverage of Algebra 1 in a middle grades mathematics curriculum.

Learn a wide range of TI-Nspire technology skills, and explore how to effectively integrate Math Nspired activities into your middle grades or high school Algebra classroom. By the end of the workshop, you’ll be comfortable using pre-made TI-Nspire™ documents and have basic skills in graphing, geometry and other applications of TI-Nspire™ technology.


This 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.

  • Overview of the TI-Nspire™ handheld, including general calculator, graphing and statistical functionality.
  • Exploration of dynamic, interactive lessons focused on slope, bivariate data, quadratics, domain and range.
  • Introduction to basic features of Teacher Software.
  • Coverage of expressions, equations, functions and modeling with multiple representations.
  • Exploration of online resources and formative assessment documents with Teacher Software.
  • Opportunities for differentiation based on educators’ subject areas and needs.
  • Wider curriculum coverage, including families of functions and systems of equations and inequalities.
  • Introduction to data collection and analysis with the Calculator-Based Ranger 2™ (CBR 2) motion sensor.
  • Additional opportunities for differentiation based on educators’ subject areas and needs.
