Next Steps With TI-Nspire™ Technology in High School Mathematics

Educators with intermediate-level knowledge of TI-Nspire™ technology will learn how to create activities to excite and engage students in high school mathematics. This workshop covers a variety of topics, including Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Precalculus, Calculus and Statistics.

Learn how TI-Nspire™ technology facilitates reasoning, sense-making and understanding in an interactive mathematics classroom. You’ll have time to create your own activities and explore ways to enhance classroom activities with formative assessment.

Overview

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.
