# Virtual Texas EOC Test Prep Using TI-Nspire™ CX Technology

## Camp for students

Camps supporting student success. Contact us to get started

This virtual camp is offered to assist students in preparing for their upcoming Texas EOC examinations covering algebra I and eighth grade math. 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.

By the end of the camp, students should feel comfortable with:

• Leveraging the TI-Nspire™ CX II graphing calculator for exam questions in key reporting categories, such as number and algebraic methods, describing and graphing linear functions, and writing and solving linear equations and inequalities
• Analyzing and solving a wide range of sample problems using graphs, tables and calculator tools
• Exploring activities that reinforce technology skills and deepen student understanding of key EOC exam 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

Using a table, graphing a function and finding points of interest, grabbing and moving a point, graphing a sequence, adjusting the window, graphing a scatter plot, using Numerical Solve to solve an equation, storing a value to a variable, entering data in a spreadsheet and calculating a regression equation, scientific notation, generating a sequence in a spreadsheet and on a calculator page, transforming graphs of linear and quadratic functions, graphing relations, using a Movable Line to determine a line of fit, calculating the mean of a data set ### EOC exam strategies

Graphing and analyzing functions and relations, graphing and solving equations, substituting values, comparing values by storing values as variables, using true/false statements, using regression equations to make predictions, evaluating expressions and solving equations with calculator tools, working backward, using a spreadsheet to determine the terms of a sequence, using tables to determine function values, using a scatter plot to graph transformations, using a spreadsheet to determine mean absolute deviation ### Activities to deepen student understanding

Domain and Range, Functions and Zeros, Translations, Slope as Rate, Equivalence, Surface Area/Volume, Proportionality, Correlation, Exponential Growth, Volume Relationships, Simple Inequalities, Linear Inequalities, Comparing Linear and Exponential Data, Quadratic Functions, Pythagorean Relationships, Dilations, Reflections, Graphing and Analyzing Bivariate Data, Mean Absolute Deviation

## 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
