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.

“Exploring Pre-Calculus and AP Calculus Activities with the TI-84 Plus (TI)”

In this session, participants will see how concepts from Pre-Calculus and AP Calculus can be explored graphically, numerically, and analytically using TI-84 Plus family of graphing calculators.  Feel free to come and share your ideas and resources.  The TI-84 Plus, TI-84 Plus C SE, and TI-84 Plus CE are all acceptable for use on AP exams.

“Exploring Pre-Calculus and AP Calculus Activities with the TI-Nspire™ CX and CX II (TI)”

In this session, participants will see how concepts from Pre-Calculus and AP Calculus can be explored graphically, numerically, and analytically using TI-Nspire CX handheld technology.  The TI-Nspire CX and TI-Nspire CX CAS units also come with companion Teacher software featuring a built-in TI SmartView emulator.  The TI-Nspire CX handheld is acceptable for use on AP exams.
