This workshop will cover the basics of the TI-Nspire™ handheld and TI-Nspire™ Teacher Software in the context of middle grades mathematics. A special emphasis will be put on building student understanding of the concepts within and around expressions and equations. Learn how to use a series of premade lessons in a vertical progression to promote a strong foundation in these critical areas of focus. Cultivate students’ problem-solving skills with multiple representations of expressions, equations and systems of equations. Explore inequalities in one and two variables. Expose and redirect students’ misconceptions about solving equations and systems of equations. Learn pedagogical strategies for improving student reasoning about expressions and equations.

At the conclusion of the workshop, you will be comfortable with maneuvering within the TI-Nspire™ handheld and TI-Nspire™ Teacher Software, as well as using the Building Concepts: Expressions and Equations series of lessons.

The day before the workshop, participants are invited to attend an optional, one-half day Calculator Basics session. This session is free for workshop attendees who would like to polish their skills.
