    This workshop will focus on mathematical reasoning and problem solving with the emphasis on using the handheld TI Inspire calculator as a tool. It will provide both algebraic review and enrichment for students entering Algebra 2, Pre-calculus, and Calculus. The workshop will cover strategies for saving work, utilizing all applications, and working through multiple representations with algebraic concepts. Whether getting “back up to speed” in algebra before entering an algebra or pre-calculus course or refining your exposure or familiarity with a TI-Nspire calculator as a learning tool, this 1-week workshop will benefit both problem solving and confidence in utilizing the powerful handheld device. This handheld technology is permissible on major standardized tests, including the PSAT, SAT, ACT, SAT Subject Tests, and AP exams. Students may bring their own TI Nspire or may use one provided for class time only. While emphasis will be on use of the handheld calculator, students may additionally use their tablet or laptop if it possesses the same software. This workshop serves as a complement for students planning to enroll in our SAT/ACT Prep course.
