**Exploring Functions with TI-Rover**

Do you feel pressed for time as you struggle to cover content while also using STEM principles and technology? In this session, participants will put technology to work for them. Classroom activities using the TI-Rover will explore a variety of topics involving functions. Engage students with a robotic vehicle to develop their understanding of domain, range, linear and quadratic models and more.

**Playing Nice with the Mean Value Theorem**

Explore the concept of average rate of change while focusing on conceptual understanding using dynamic graphical explorations. This conceptual understanding will serve as a foundation for discovering the conclusion of the mean value theorem in the context of the race between the tortoise and the hare. With the conclusion in mind, attendees will explore the necessary conditions required for the conclusion to be met.
