STUDENT TUTORIALS FOR MATHS methods – TERM 3 PROGRAM

The term 3 Student ‘live’ tutorial programs for Mathematical Methods has been posted on the Texas Instruments, Australia website. 

The aim of these FREE tutorial programs is to support teachers with student learning of term 3 concepts, whilst also demonstrating how TI-NspireTM CX CAS technology can assist in efficiently answering exam style questions. 

Prior to each event registered participants will be provided with the exam style questions that will be covered during the ‘live’ tutorial. In addition to demonstrating efficient ways to solve the exam style questions presenters will also provide tips and shortcuts.

All the presenters of these programs are experienced Mathematics Teachers who are also extremely knowledgeable with regards to using TI-Nspire CX CAS technology. It is a great opportunity for students to ask questions.

Teachers of course are welcome to attend too!

All ‘live’ events run for 30mins.

Encourage your students to register and take part in this valuable FREE tutorial series. CLICK HERE
