# Virtual SAT® Test Prep Using TI-Nspire™ CX Technology

## Boot camp for students

This virtual camp is offered to assist students in preparing for their upcoming SAT® math test. The camp is offered in two options: A six-hour camp for up to 25 students or two three-hour camps for up to 50 students (25 students each). The breakdown of hours can be customized as needed.

Students will explore main topics of the SAT® math test, and learn strategies to better prepare for the test. By the end of the camp, students should feel comfortable with:

• Leveraging the TI-Nspire™ CX II graphing calculator for exam questions in key categories, such as algebra, functions, problem-solving, and data and statistics
• Implementing test preparation strategies, and using premade activities that reinforce technology skills and deepen understanding of key SAT® topics

## Six-hour camp areas of focus

The six-hour camp covers the following Texas Instruments (TI) technology skills, exam strategies and activities:

### TI-Nspire™ CX technology skills

Graphing equations, solving systems graphically and algebraically, substituting values, determining zeros, using the trace feature, solving equations numerically and graphically, using a table, graphing inequalities, graphing circles, using one-variable statistics, modeling line of best fit, regression, truth statements

### SAT® strategies

Thinking graphically, eliminating incorrect answers, solving problems by working backward, substitution, using structure, avoiding distractors

### Activities to deepen understanding

Rate of Change, Mean and Standard Deviation, Percent, Quadratic Functions, Unit Conversion, Angles and Parallel Lines, Systems of Equations, Inequalities, Interpreting Graphs, Function Notation

## Three-hour camp areas of focus

The three-hour camp covers the following TI technology skills, exam strategies and activities:

### TI-Nspire™ CX technology skills

Graphing equations, solving systems graphically, determining zeros, using the trace feature, solving equations numerically and graphically

### SAT® strategies

Thinking graphically, eliminating incorrect answers, solving problems by working backward, substitution, using structure

### Activities to deepen understanding

Rate of Change, Mean and Standard Deviation, Percent, Quadratic Functions, Unit Conversion
