Getting Started with TI-Nspire™ Technology in Connecting Science and Mathematics

Designed for educators who are just beginning to use TI-Nspire™ technology, this workshop focuses on integrating key science and mathematics concepts with the TI-Nspire™ handheld and TI-Nspire™ Teacher software.

Explore simulations and data-collection activities from Science Nspired and discuss integrating them into your classroom. By the end of the workshop, you’ll be comfortable using pre-made TI-Nspire™ documents, possess basic skills with various probes and experiments, and understand the basics of TI-Nspire™ technology.

Overview

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.
