Presentation Description

This session will centre around the development and use of "Ultimate Brackets" - an Nspire document that provides students with unlimited, tailored practice at both expanding and factorising algebraic expressions. The document intelligently challenges and supports students as their algebraic skills improve. Originally designed by Nevil Hopley in 2005 for the TI84, he has rewritten it (in Lua) for both the Numeric and CAS TI-Nspire handhelds, with many significant enhancements. This new version has been extensively trialled in classrooms since August 2012. Come along to this World Premier to obtain a copy of what will surely become your favourite algebraic teaching activity!
