"To those to whom much is given, much is expected."

TI-Nspire The proposed next graphing calculator for Europe, Canada, Australia and the U.S. Integrates:Graphing Spreadsheets Note-taking Calculator All on one screen (split into up to 4 parts) I have described it as a TI-84 on steroids (but that's just me).

TI-Nspire: Comes in 2 flavors: 84 (non CAS) version 89 (CAS) version Some of these slides were done with CAS.

Some sample screen shots...

Graphs (and Geometry)

Notes

Calculator (Computer Algebra System) ***only on the CAS version

And you can split screens, too...

CAS and Notes (horizontal split)

Notes and Geometry (horizontal split)

Graph and Notes (horizontal split)

How about a screen divided into 4?

Notes Graph Spreadsheet CAS And they all talk to one another!

Piecewise functions, anyone?

Solve systems of equations... Matrices...

Show how a problem can be created in stages. Find the rectangle of maximum area that can be inscribed in a given parabola. Illustrate Notes, CAS, Geometry and Graphing, and Spreadsheets.

Stage 1

Stage 2

Stage 3

Stage 4

I foresee this changing the way we teach, the way we make assignments and assessments.

The Phone Bill Problem Student Version C 2006 Tom Reardon Gifts, Inc. (NOTE: This is a problem that I developed for the 82 back in the 90s. An oldie but now redone with Nspire.)

There is also a Teacher Version to this. With all the notes and solutions.

"Mathematics is the garment that we continuously alter with our students, and technology should be seamlessly interwoven throughout its fabric." - Tom Reardon
