T³™ Teacher Leader Cadre (TLC): High School Mathematics Using the TI-Nspire™ Technology

Audience: High school mathematics educators looking to receive in-depth technology, pedagogy, and leadership training with TI-Nspire technology over an extended period of time.

Technology: TI-Nspire™ CX handhelds and TI-Nspire™ Teacher Software.

Overview: This workshop focuses on appropriate usage of the TI-Nspire handheld and Teacher Software across the high school mathematics curriculum, with an emphasis on strengthening content knowledge, pedagogy, and leadership skills.


Participants will have the opportunity to begin or expand their use of the TI-Nspire handheld and Teacher Software, gain deeper insight into specific content areas, develop a stronger appreciation of pedagogy, and become better equipped to share their knowledge with other educators and students.

Leadership activities allow participants to develop skills to train peers and mentor colleagues on the effective use of TI-Nspire technology in the classroom. Participants will design their own TI-Nspire lessons and, during the last two days of the TLC, present their lessons to their colleagues for professional critique.

Technology, pedagogy, and leadership skills are taught in the context of the following areas:

Algebra 1: Equivalence, Equations, Linear Functions, Systems of Linear Equations, Functions & Relations
Triangles, Right Triangles & Trig, Quadrilaterals, Circles, Perimeter & Area, Transformational Geometrys
Algebra 2:
Functions, Quadratics, Systems of Linear Equations & Inequalities, Power Functions, Polynomials
Exponential & Logarithmic Functions, Trigonometry, Applications of Trig
Derivatives, Applications of the Derivative
Displaying & Describing Univariate Data, Describing Bivariate Data
