Teaching and Learning With TI-Nspire™ CX Technology in Middle Grades Science

Educators who are using TI-Nspire™ CX technology will learn the basics of teaching with the TI-Nspire™ CX graphing calculator and TI-Nspire™ CX Premium Teacher Software. This workshop immerses middle grades science teachers in hands-on explorations that demonstrate effective classroom use of technology, covering a variety of topics across life, earth and physical science. Investigate simulations using TI-Nspire™ Documents from Science Nspired and learn to use the Vernier DataQuest™ application for the TI-Nspire™ CX graphing calculator to identify patterns for modeling and predicting science phenomena.

Explore learning resources such as the Science Nspired tool, designed to support further use of TI-Nspire™ CX technology, and discuss its integration in the classroom.


This in-person workshop is available in one-, two- and three-day options to accommodate educator-specific needs. A half-day workshop option is also available. The two- and three-day workshops offer a more extensive exploration of topics. A virtual workshop is also available in multiple two- or three-hour sessions.
