Workshop 1: Introducing TI-Nspire CX II and the 5.0 Software (9.30am -10.30am) Partial Approval - Free

Sales end on - 28/11/2019

Come along and find out what's new with the TI-Nspire CX II and the 5.0 software and how they both relate to the new IB Mathematics courses. This informative and collaborative session is designed to help IB Mathematics teachers decide on which calculator that best suits their teachers and students moving forward.

Workshop 2A: Teaching Calculus in Analysis and Approaches (10:40- 12.25pm) Partial Approval - Free

Sales end on - 28/11/2019

The new Mathematics: Analysis and Approaches subject demands a strong and rigorous approach towards the teaching and learning of calculus at the SL and HL levels. In this session, we will show how TI-Nspire technology can be used to explore, visualise and help explain some important calculus concepts in the SL and HL courses. Topics covered include limits, graphical interpretation of first and second derivatives, optimisation, kinematics, L'Hopital's rule and Euler's method.

Workshop 2B: Modelling in Applications and Interpretation (10:40am -12:25pm) Partial Approval - Free

Sales end on - 28/11/2019

The new Mathematics: Applications and Interpretation subject places a strong emphasis on developing, applying and interpreting results derived from a variety of mathematical models at the SL and HL levels. In this session, we will use TI-Nspire technology and real-life data to develop and use a variety of mathematical models from the new course. A central focus of the session is to explore and understand how parameters affect the behaviour of a function.

Workshop 3A: Teaching Finance and More Advanced Graphing in Analysis and Approaches (1:20pm -2.50pm) Partial Approval - Free

Sales end on - 28/11/2019

The new Mathematics: Analysis and Approaches contains a section on financial applications of geometric sequences and series including compound interest and annual depreciation. In the first part of this session we will use TI Nspire technology to solve some problems in financial mathematics. In the remainder of the session, we will introduce and use some more advanced graphing skills relevant to the new course.

Workshop 3B: Teaching Statistics and Matrices in Applications and Interpretation (1:20pm -2.50pm) Partial Approval - Free

Sales end on - 28/11/2019

The new Mathematics: Applications and Interpretation course has a strong focus on the teaching and learning of statistics and matrices at the SL and HL levels. In this session, we will show how TI-Nspire technology can be used to teach important statistical and matrix concepts in the SL and HL courses. The two main areas covered are bivariate data analysis including various forms of regression and transition matrices.

Workshop 4A: Paper 3 in Applications and Interpretation HL (3:00pm -4:15pm) Partial Approval - Free

Sales end on - 28/11/2019

The new Mathematics: Applications and Interpretation course has a Paper 3 which is very different in structure and assessment objectives from the current Paper 3. The new Paper 3 will aim to assess a student's ability to apply their mathematical knowledge in context with a strong emphasis on interpretation and explanation of mathematical results. In this session, we will use TI-Nspire technology to work through some Paper 3 style question parts. Towards the end of the session, we will briefly discuss and share ideas for resources on how to best prepare our students for this paper.

Workshop 4B: Paper 3 in Analysis and Approaches HL (3:00pm -4:15pm) Partial Approval - Free

Sales end on - 28/11/2019

The new Mathematics: Analysis and Approaches course has a Paper 3 which is very different in structure and assessment objectives from the current Paper 3. The new Paper 3 will aim to assess a student's ability to apply their mathematical knowledge in situations often requiring exploration leading to generalisation. In this session, we will use TI-Nspire technology to work through some Paper 3 style question parts. Towards the end of the session, we will briefly discuss and share ideas for resources on how to best prepare our students for this paper.
