One of the common themes that we hear throughout our visits with educators across the state is that you feel that you are teaching 2 courses; one math and one technology (calculator) and do not have enough time to fit it all in by the Regents Exams.
Texas Instruments is glad to announce professional development this summer that is content specific. You can sign up for your topic; be it Integrated Algebra, Geometry, Algebra II/Trig., Calculus, Precalculus, or Middle School Math.
The trainings integrate the TI-Nspire and Teacher Edition software into your classroom curriculum. You gain lessons and activities ready for the classroom. Participants can receive a TI-Nspire or TI-Nspire CAS hand held and a copy of the TI-Nspire Teacher Edition software (includes TI-Smartview).
