**Making Sense of Functions**

Student comprehension of functions is more complete when they are presented with multiple representations. In this session, participants will examine functions outside of the traditional numerical, algebraic, and graphical models. Using the TI-Innovator, numerical input will be transformed into real world output that students can see and hear. Real world input will then be used to create numerical and graphical output. Come hear the difference between linear and exponential functions.

**Moving Towards Understanding with TI-Rover**

Student understanding of mathematics is more authentic when it is presented with multiple representations. Participants will examine mathematical ideas of the traditional numerical, algebraic, and graphical models in the context of the real world. Using the TI-Innovator and TI- Rover, numerical input will be transformed into real world output that students can experience. Output from the Innovator and Rover will help students make sense of algebraic and geometric problems as they persevere in solving them.
