Mass Academy& TI is sponsoring this for all Massachusetts Teachers to help with the upcoming MCAS Mathematics Exam for grade 8 and 10 students.  It is the first of what we hope will become an annual event, but we need your help to spread the word to your colleagues both in your school or others.

FREE MCAS Workshop for Teachers

Leveraging Classroom Instruction to Maximize Student Achievement on the grades 8 & 10 MCAS Mathematics Exams

Did you know the TI 84Plus CE is a digital graphing calculator on the 2020 grades 8 & 10 MCAS Exam? Are you wondering how to support your students in using this tool effectively on their state test?
Come to this FREE half-day workshop to learn how to incorporate this powerful tool in your classroom to improve student learning and success on the grades 8 & 10 MCAS mathematics tests! 

This workshop is designed to:

All materials will be provided, and TI 84Plus CE handheld graphing calculators will be available to use during the workshop.  Bring your laptop, if possible, and we’ll explore using the TI84Plus CE pull down on sample MCAS exams.  Every teacher in attendance will receive a lifetime TI 84Plus CE SmartView Emulator software license.  One teacher at each location will win a handheld graphing calculator!  Experience with the TI 84Plus CE is not required.
