Addressing Unfinished Learning Through Acceleration
Schools across Texas are working hard to address unfinished learning and ensure the greatest levels of success for all students. Realizing these goals will require innovative approaches to instruction that include accelerating students’ progressions of learning. Consider guidance for educators looking for tools and strategies that build conceptual understanding more efficiently, and result in increased student enjoyment of mathematics while growing academic outcomes.

Developing Teachers’ STEM Identity in the Math Classroom
For more than 30 years, TI has been an active member in math, science, and STEM classrooms and today is no different. As demand for STEM talent skyrockets, learn how TI can support and encourage math teachers to integrate STEM related activities and real-world connections into their daily math instruction. Learn how to equip your district with technology-rich resources that will ignite students and motivate them to pursue high-need, high-wage career pathways. We look forward to a discussion of roadblocks and challenges that teachers may have in developing their STEM identities and how we can assist in overcoming them.
