Tuesday, April 1, 2008 4:00 - 6:00 Instructional Support Center Room A 435 Glenwood Road Binghamton, NY 13902
The April 1, Broome-Tioga BOCES TI Users Support Group will feature T^3 instructor, Gene Olmstead demonstrating how to use the Cabri Jr Geometry Apps on the TI 83/84 Graphing Calculators in the Algebra Classroom.
Come see some examples of how to make connections between Algebra and Geometry. We really can integrate the curriculum, not only with new problems, but also enhancing old problems in new ways. Plane and Coordinate Geometry examples will be explored. Participants need no experience, only a desire to learn new ways to use a calculator to show students Algebra and Geometry are not always two separate courses. Bring your TI-83/84 to receive the Cabri Jr. Apps and files as well as handouts.
Gene Olmstead has been using a graphing calculator in the teaching of mathematics to enhance the student*s learning for 20 years. He has given many conference sessions/workshops and summer institutes regionally and nationally on the use of technology in the mathematics classroom. Gene is a National T^3 Instructor and has been involved with the writing of T^3 professional development materials, including the co-authorship of the Cabri Jr. Explorations book, as well as many articles/materials on the use of technology in the classroom. He is currently retired from Elmira Free Academy in Elmira after 33 years where he taught all levels of mathematics from Algebra to Calculus.

Pizza will be served! Door prizes will be given!
