Nspired Math

My students need graphing calculators and docking station to help them learn to identify connections between data, graphs, equations and models to make math more accessible.

My Students

True understanding of mathematics begins when you are able to recognize the connections between the algebra and geometry of mathematics. Graphing calculators give the students the ability to compare data in multiple representations making the mathematics more accessible.

The students at our school are made up of an ethnically and socioeconomically diverse population.

Forty-six percent of the population is considered economically disadvantaged. They have chosen to opt out of the traditional high school because they recognized that experience was not ideal for their educational vision. Our students chose to come to a school that focuses on science and math, choosing core science and math classes as their electives for high school credit.

My Project

The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics has put a large emphasis on identifying the connections between different mathematical representations. Students are asked to look at tables and describe the characteristics of the corresponding graphs and equations. This deep understanding of mathematics is difficult for students to grasp because it requires time and effort devoted to number crunching and data analysis by hand. My students need graphing calculators and docking station. The TI-Nspire calculators allow students to view multiple representations of mathematics at once, enabling the students to see connections between the representations more easily. The TI-Nspire calculators have the capability to integrate science projects into math class by creating spreadsheets from data gathered using scientific probes that can then be analyzed and shared with the class wirelessly. With these powerful machines, students can make their learning more meaningful and more accessible.

Mathematics is best learned through application.

These calculators give students the ability to visualize data, and make their own connections. The ability to use the calculators across curriculum makes them the ideal choice for enhancing the collaboration between math and science classes making the science the driving force behind the mathematics.
