Creating impact with your TI-Nspire in Mathematical Methods

Summary

Participants will learn ways of using dynamic features of their TI-Nspire CAS to construct interactive animations and simulations, creating more impact in the teaching and learning of key concepts in Mathematical Methods. Some under-utilised functionalities will be explored, include dynamic geometry tools, data capture, sliders and various types of random number generators. One of the activities will involve participants setting up simulations to demonstrate the concept of the sampling distribution, which is an essential element to understanding the topic of statistical inference for sample proportions. The use of dynamic computation in Notes pages and some innovative uses of the Lists & Spreadsheet application will also be investigated. The animations and simulations will be applied to a variety of topics, across the functions, calculus, probability and statistics areas of study. The workshop is primarily aimed at teachers who are currently teaching with TI-Nspire. Participants are encouraged to bring their own device. However, loan calculators will also be available if required. Other CAS platforms can also be used to carry out the activities, but TI-Nspire will be the featured technology.
