Investing in Math Education

Texas Instruments calculator is making an impact inside the classroom.

The Board of Education is making a major investment in math education.  After a two-year pilot in several schools most high school and some middle schools will now have the TI-Nspire Calculator. 

The device helps create an interactive classroom environment where students get instant feedback.

“It’s a giant cell phone so these kids are able to communicate with each other, send things to me, get answers back,” said Sandia High School Teacher Derek Maestas.  “It gets away from that fear of having to go to the board.”

In the two-year pilot, schools saw math scores improve.
