Connecting Mathematics to Current Events and Daily Life Using Newspaper Articles and TI Technology

Technology: TI-84 Plus family, TI-Nspire™ Technology
Topic: Teaching Strategies
Speakers: Ron Lancaster

Let’s put on a pair of mathematical glasses to look for where math lives in current events and develop mathematical questions related to daily life.

Join NCTM columnist Ron Lancaster as he leads a discussion on how students can use TI technology to answer mathematical questions related to events of the day. The end goal will be to have students do this on their own by asking them to read news stories and develop their own questions. Technology skills will include lists, tables, graphs and the solver utility.
