Subject: TI- Back to School Update

Welcome Back!

I hope you had a chance to enjoy some time off this summer and are ready to bring in the new school year with a bang!  I thought I would take a moment to provide a few updates on what we have been up to recently at TI and offer any assistance needed as we head into a new school year.

If you haven’t seen us in a while, you might be interested in learning about the increased capabilities of our graphing calculators as we extend from the math classroom into doing more with data collection, science and STEM (PBL and Engineering).  New capabilities create a whole new dynamic when it comes to bringing math and science to life in the classroom.  If you haven’t seen how we combine Math and Robotics through the use of the new TI-Innovator Rover and our Math in Motion series of activities please take a moment to check it out:


o   NEW! TI-Innovator Rover - https://education.ti.com/en/products/micro-controller/ti-innovator-rover<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__education.ti.com_en_products_micro-2Dcontroller_ti-2Dinnovator-2Drover&d=DwMF-g&c=fGrSkuu3YyS91PacIZP0XfO0GRH7JgL5znLEO6-CQG0&r=hD1RgVtVAfjHqM6ipl7VgIa9sOnyksaDjm7Cex6HZqan_jJHJ-cb-QMyiG7IG6q9&m=iYSV3HNZG9AoFYdmU2_1wxzaR-ByoJUPZtn8Rq6H9r0&s=rWk0ew1I2WAXUnzsk4g_sumihGYfTLEfodFWLuHVG9Q&e=>

Follow this link to see how Portland Public schools used the new TI-Innovator Rover to introduce coding to Middle Schoolers:   Robots at George Middle School<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__youtu.be_e28n1HsQ-2D0w&d=DwMF-g&c=fGrSkuu3YyS91PacIZP0XfO0GRH7JgL5znLEO6-CQG0&r=hD1RgVtVAfjHqM6ipl7VgIa9sOnyksaDjm7Cex6HZqan_jJHJ-cb-QMyiG7IG6q9&m=iYSV3HNZG9AoFYdmU2_1wxzaR-ByoJUPZtn8Rq6H9r0&s=1C-fxFOnPecMDW0-whsot9Aj7brD8GrotW3XGVODUdM&e=>

On this note, we have created a slew of STEM projects and ran over 100 STEM Camps this summer.  TI has taken steps to ensure anyone can leverage TI technology to introduce coding and STEM to their students (no experience needed).  If you are interested in learning more about how to bring STEM camps or classroom activities to your school or district, please let me know.

Here are some other ways we are working to help increase student success in the classroom:

Partner in Math
Algebra Readiness Initiatives
Curriculum mapping (thousands of free lessons/activities)
Improving College Entrance Exam/Assessment scores through effective use of graphing technology (Think Graphically!)
Systemic PD and Coaching
Math with TI (Lessons, Technology and PD) - https://education.ti.com/en/resources/math<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__education.ti.com_en_resources_math&d=DwMF-g&c=fGrSkuu3YyS91PacIZP0XfO0GRH7JgL5znLEO6-CQG0&r=hD1RgVtVAfjHqM6ipl7VgIa9sOnyksaDjm7Cex6HZqan_jJHJ-cb-QMyiG7IG6q9&m=iYSV3HNZG9AoFYdmU2_1wxzaR-ByoJUPZtn8Rq6H9r0&s=NuESwJpJ2psdHkunVtWiGD44cPPHgFMRVkBmKQtE8kI&e=>

Partner in Science
Assist with district action plan to prepare for new standards
Make better use of what you have (existing curriculum, technology etc.) with training and coaching to better align with the new K-12 science standards/framework
3-Dimensional lessons are available to model instruction using the new framework rubric to include cross-cutting concepts and 3-D alignment

Partner in Computer Science and STEM
Give every student a chance to write their own program using just a graphing calculator (TI Codes – link below)
Empower teachers to teach coding and engineering with the Innovator and Rover
STEM Camps made easy with TI (please email for details)

I will be visiting your area this fall for state conferences and other district appointments.  Specifically, I will have a table at UCTM in Draper on October 12th-13th.  Please stop by to say hello if you are attending.

If you are interested in learning more about how TI may be able to add value to your specific efforts, please don’t hesitate to reach out.  I welcome the opportunity to connect with you either in person, or remotely if that works best, to continue the conversation on how we can be of assistance.

Thank you for your time and I hope to see you soon!

All the Best,
Brian
