      Algebra Nspirations
    • Algebra Nspirations: Main Objectives
      Modelthe teaching and learning of algebra in the technological world of the 21st Century;
      IntegrateTI-Nspire handheld technology in the algebraic problem presentation as well as in the problem solutions;
      Connect the topics of algebra—in meaningful ways—to the world in which students live;
      Showcase the dynamic new TI-Nspire Technology
    • Algebra Nspirations: Rationale (based on algebra research)
      Algebra, the perennial gatekeeper : algebra is viewed as the "filter" course for future success in college (e.g. TCB)
      The importance of teaching the multiple representations of algebra: words, equations, numbers and graphs
      The Importance of Real-World Connections
      A Strong Partner of MATH FORWARD
    • Algebra Nspirations: Proposed Titles
      1. Linear Functions and Equations (focus: geometry of graphs)
      2. Linear Functions and Equations (focus: algebra of equations)
      3. Quadratic Functions and Equations (focus: geometry of graphs)
      4. Quadratic Functions and Equations (focus: algebra of equations)
