Workshop Choices

A:  TI-Nspire™ Fundamentals

Are you new to TI-Nspire™?  Learning the basics will give you confidence to use the technology in your classroom and provide students with the basic skills they need to use it efficiently in their courses. In this session we will explore the many features of the Calculator and Graph applications. You will find answers to your questions and are sure to leave saying: “I did not know it could do that”.   Level: ALL  Technology: TI-Nspire™

B:  Tips & Tricks with TI-Nspire™

TI-Nspire is much more than a platform used to generate graphs and execute computations. Incorporating other applications such as Lists and Spreadsheets, Geometry and Statistics is when efficiency transforms into effective. In this session participants will see how to use sliders, dynamically link to Spreadsheets, Geometry and Statistics applications to create a complete learning environment. Examples applicable to both Methods and Specialist will be covered.    Level: ALL  Technology: TI-Nspire™

C:  TI-84PlusCE™ Fundamentals

Are you new to the TI-84PlusCE™?  Learning the basics will give you confidence to use the technology in your classroom and provide students with the basic skills they need to use it efficiently in their courses. In this session we will explore the basic features, commands and navigation. You will find answers to your questions and are sure to leave saying: “I did not know it could do that”.    Level: ALL  Technology: TI-84PlusCE™

D:  Tips & Tricks with TI-84PlusCE™

From graphing functions and derivatives to saving files and settings, there are so many powerful ways to use the TI-84Plus CE.  Participants in this session will see how to use Group files, Graphical Data Bases and Apps to enable students can use their calculator efficiently in the classroom, between classes and in examinations.   Level: ALL  Technology: TI-84PlusCE™

E:  To Infinity and Beyond – What a Buzz! Who says “Calculus can’t be fun”? 

In this session you will see and experience ways to energise the teaching of Calculus and turn it from a feared topic to one that your students will rave about. Unleash the power of TI-Nspire™ and see how to take it to the limit!  Level: Mathematical Methods  Technology: TI-Nspire™

F: TI-84Plus CE™ – Know your Limit              

Teaching functions and calculus with the TI-84PlusCE is limited only by your imagination. Functions, composite functions, derivatives, dynamic derivatives, numerical integration and solving problems will be explored in this workshop. We’ll maximise our time to minimise yours.   Level: Mathematical Methods  Technology: TI-84PlusCE™

G:  Integrating Significant Change

In this session we will investigate the tools required for Unit 3 and 4 Specialist Mathematics. Some applications of integration and rates of change will be investigated. Use of the complex number and statistical inference tools will also be included, so be prepared to integrate significant change into your classroom teaching.  Level: Specialist Mathematics  Technology: TI-Nspire™

H:  Integrating Significant Change            

Differential and integral calculus, applications of differential equations and more, you’ll see how to rise and not run when it comes to the appropriate use of TI technology in your Specialist Mathematics class. We’re 95% confident that you will be smarter when you finish this session.   Level: Specialist Mathematics  Technology: TI-84PlusCE™

I:  Efficient and Effective use of TI-Nspire™ in the Specialist Mathematics Exam

In this session we will look at questions from the QCAA Specialist Mathematics Sample Technology Active Examination and demonstrate the ways in which users of the TI-Nspire calculator can benefit and save time in reaching solutions and checking answers. Participants will explore how to efficiently utilise features of the TI-Nspire to answer typical examination questions.  Level: Specialist Mathematics  Technology: TI-Nspire™

J:  Efficient and Effective use of TI-84PlusCE™ in the Specialist Mathematics Exam
