Abstract
The purpose of this action research study was to determine whether a more frequent integration of the TI-NspireTM into the pedagogy for my Advanced Algebra class would enhance the students’ achievement and increase their comfort with, usage of, and knowledge of graphing calculators in general and the TI-NspireTM in particular. I also wanted to determine students’ perceptions about the use of TI-NspireTM graphing calculators and technology in the teaching of Advanced Algebra. Pre- and post-surveys of the students were used to measure the students’ comfort with, usage of, and knowledge of graphing calculators in general and specifically the TI-NspireTM graphing calculator. Achievement was measured by students’ ability to reach scores of 89% on quizzes and tests. Students’ perceptions about the use of TI-NspireTM graphing calculators and technology in the teaching of Advanced Algebra were measured using a questionnaire at the end of the study. End of project interviews with participants and teacher journaling were also part of the study. Integration of TI-NspireTM graphing calculators into my pedagogy did have a positive effect on enhancing my students’ achievement on exams while also increasing their comfort with, usage of, and knowledge of graphing calculators in general and specifically the TI-NspireTM graphing calculator. I was also able to determine that my students had positive perceptions regarding the TI-NspireTM and the use of technology in the teaching of Advanced Algebra.
