FREE VIRTUAL MINI-WORKSHOP: Leveraging the TI-84 Plus CE Graphing Calculator for SAT® Test Success

In light of IDOE’s recent announcement that the ISTEP Grade 10 assessment will be replaced with the College Board SAT beginning the 2021-2022 school year we will be updating the partnership session with TI to Leveraging TI-84 Technology for Success on the SAT.

This workshop is designed for ICTM educators who want to learn to leverage TI-84 graphing technology skills to drive student success on the SAT® test by exploring released test items. The workshop will be led by national T3 Instructor & Educator Tom Reardon.

Educators will cover elements of the SAT® test, discuss strategies for helping students to better understand key topics, and emphasize techniques for teaching with TI-84 graphing technology in this mini-session.

Attendees will receive the TI-Smartview CE Teacher Software for the 84 family of graphing calculators (value $150).
