When discussing and applying concepts from subjects such as Mathematics, Physics or Chemistry, the graphing calculator is a recurrent tool for solving problems analytically!

TI–Nspire-CX technology allows teachers to create dynamic and shared learning scenarios, making it easier for their students to understand the content. Through different problem perspectives and representations, this technology provides significant learning. Its applications allow the creation of complete documents and structured teaching activities.

This course aims to understand the framing of scientific and/or graphing calculator applications within the current basic and secondary Education curricula, in subjects such as Mathematics and Chemistry.

Take the first steps to get to know the essential tools of the TI-Nspire™ CX technology to maximize the advantages that it allows when working with students, especially when performing autonomous research tasks and problem-solving exercises.

By actively engaging in innovative learning scenarios (that promote 21st-century skills), teachers should act as facilitators – transversally promoting creative reflective and computational thinking, by resorting to Algorithms and Programming.

The main goal is, as you know, to solve problems. Using TI-Nspire™ ecosystems allows us to explore mathematical concepts according to a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) approach.

This is becoming increasingly relevant given that technology and mathematics have a large and growing influence in many aspects of society. The TI-Nspire™ CX II-T graphing calculator received the Comenius EduMedia 2020 Seal.
