Handheld graphing technology, if used appropriately in the

mathematics classroom, has the potential to enhance teaching and

learning of mathematics by empowering students to learn across

different visual representations of a mathematical problem. With the

aid of such technology, teachers have the means to help students

develop a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts, broaden

their critical thinking skills and discover meaningful real-world



In this workshop, participants will explore ways to enhance teaching

of mathematics through the new TI-Nspire Technology.
