Tackling Topic 2: Functions in the IB® Mathematics Curriculum

When: Thursday, October 14, 2021 | 7 p.m. Central time
Technology: TI-84 Plus family, TI-Nspire™ CX technology
Presenters: Daniel Wilkie

“Functions” is Topic 2 in both of the IB® math courses, “Applications and Interpretation” and “Analysis and Approaches.”

This webinar focuses on the Topic 2 activities on the Texas Instruments website, like the “Which Garage Is Better” activity, how they align to the IB® curriculum, and how you can leverage either TI-84 Plus CE or TI-Nspire™ CX II graphing calculators in your classroom.

Join this webinar to:

  • Pinpoint the Topic 2 struggles from the exam, and how to improve on those topics
  • Discuss how Topic 2 was used on the Math Exploration, and how to improve on them
  • Explore one Topic 2 activity (or two, if time permits) showing both graphing calculator platforms
