If you happen to be in Hawaii on June 5 — 7 or June 24 – 26 and have some time in your schedule, explore the potential of TI-Nspire technology for implementing the Common Core State Mathematics Content and the Mathematical Practices for Mathematics. You will learn ways for using TI-Npsire handhelds, TI-Nspire Teacher Software, Nspire Navigator as well as the TI-Nspire App for iPads to implement CCSS.
June 5 – 7 Getting Started with TI-Nspire™ in Middle Grades Mathematics and the Common Core ‐ Hosted by and held at King David Kalakaua Middle School
This workshop is designed for educators who are interested in or just beginning to use TI-Nspire™ technology. It will cover the basics to get started with the technology in Middle Grades Mathematics and Pre-Algebra. This will comprise the use of both the handheld and the Teacher Software. TI-Nspire technology will be introduced in the context of the middle school mathematics curriculum. Participants will also explore learning resources such as Activities Exchange and Math Nspired, designed to support further use of TI-Nspire technology and additional activities, along with discussions on the integration of these in their classrooms. At the conclusion of the three days, participants should have a comfort level in the use of premade documents, along with basic skills in the use of graphing and the other applications of TI-Nspire technology.

June 24‐26‐ Implementing the Common Core Mathematical Practices with TI‐Nspire™ ‐ Hosted by University of Hawaii ‐ Curriculum Research Development Group, held at King David Kalakaua Middle School
This workshop is designed to equip teachers teaching Middle Grades and High School Mathematics to excite and engage students using the Mathematical Practices. This will comprise the use of both the handheld and the Teacher Software. TI-Nspire™ technology will be introduced in the context of middle grades and high school mathematics curriculum. An emphasis will be placed on pedagogy and the implementation of effective and appropriate use of technology in an interactive mathematics classroom, in alignment with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. Participants will reflect on what steps are needed to get the students engaged in the mathematical practices through case studies, video and task analysis.
