Financial Literacy w your TI-84 with Anthony Meli & Paul Alves

Recorded October 27, 2021

Handout

The importance of teaching Financial Literacy to students has been acknowledged by the inclusion of Financial Literacy as a strand in the Grades 1-9 math curriculum in Ontario. This session will focus on the use of the TVM Solver app available on the TI-83/84 handheld that supports student learning in the Financial Literacy strand of the new grade 9 Math Curriculum in Ontario. Included in the session will be an exploration of the new TI-84 supports for the new Financial Literacy in the Ontario MTH1W .

Webinar #6 Coding with your TI-84 with Ron Lancaster Oct 6 2021.mp4

Coding with your TI-84 with Ron Lancaster

Recorded October 6, 2021

Zipped folder of session files

We will learn more about how coding in TI-Basic on the TI-84 can be used by students to solve mathematical problems, tinker, explore and play. There are many benefits for students from learning to code that go beyond using coding for these purposes. Coding provides students with opportunities to be creative, organized and perseverant, especially when the coding does not produce the desired outcome. Takeaways from this webinar will include strategies for finding the time to include coding in all mathematics courses. Although CODING AND MATH may seem like AN ODD MATCHING, it is only true as an anagram.

Webinar #5 Light Sensor Switch with Paul Alves and Anthony Meli Sept 29 2021.mp4

Light Sensor Switch w Paul Alves & Anthony Meli

Recorded Sept. 29, 2021

Session TI-Nspire file and session Solution TI-Nspire file

We will explore how to code your TI-Innovator Hub using Python on the TI-Nspire CX II CAS to collect brightness data from the built in brightness sensor. We will then explore how to store and model the data. Finally, we will modify our code to create a smart light that turns on when it's too dark on off when its bright enough.
