Getting Started with TI-Nspire™ Navigator™ System in Secondary Science

Designed for educators who are just beginning to use TI-Nspire™ technology, this workshop introduces TI-Nspire™ Student Software and TI-Nspire™ Teacher Software in the context of high school mathematics.

Learn a wide range of TI-Nspire™ software skills, and explore how to effectively integrate Math Nspired activities into your high school mathematics classroom. By the end of the workshop, you’ll be comfortable using pre-made TI-Nspire™ documents and have basic skills in graphing, geometry and other applications of TI-Nspire™ software.


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.

  • Assessing students using pre-made documents and basic Quick Poll questioning techniques.
  • Overview of the TI-Nspire™ Navigator™ System, including basic formative assessment techniques.
  • Exploration of interactive simulations, with opportunities to practice TI-Nspire™ Navigator™ System skills.
  • Questioning strategies using the Class Capture feature and Quick Poll questions to instantly gauge student understanding.
  • Data collection and analysis with the built-in Vernier DataQuest™ application.
  • Creating assessment documents with TI-Nspire™ Teacher Software.
  • Organizing assessment results in the Portfolio Workspace.
  • Introduction to data aggregation, where individual student data is collected, combined into one data set, and sent back to the class for investigation.
  • Opportunities for differentiation based on educators’ classroom needs.

"With every step of instruction, it was evident that (our instructor) had a deep desire to help others understand the technology resources in a way that was applicable to each individual and their specific content areas. Although I teach an elective science credit that does not demand the use of … (graphing) calculators, I can truly say that I walked away from this training with a new outlook and perspective towards curriculum development and lesson planning for my subject." — Clayton Rushing, Environmental Systems Teacher
