Cemetech Founder to Speak at Texas Instruments T3 Conference
Published by KermMartian on November 9, 2012 at 9:32:07 AM CST | Discuss this article (25)

I am proud to announce that Cemetech founder and administrator Christopher Mitchell (also known as yours truly, Kerm Martian), will be speaking at Texas Instruments' T3 International 2013 conference. This annual event brings thousands of teachers to discuss STEM education, particularly how it applies to TI's educational technology. I will be giving a talk based on my book, Programming the TI-83 Plus/TI-84 Plus"; the talk is entitled:

"Teaching Beginner Programming Concepts With the TI-83 Plus/TI-84 Plus"

I will be presenting in a classroom with 80 seats (and 81 TI-84+SE calculators), teaching teachers why guiding their students towards learning programming with calculators has value. I plan to go through a brief introduction to programming's place in STEM education, how calculators are actually small computers, then jump into two examples. I am considering showing the teachers the quadratic equation solver and the guessing game from Chapter 1 of my book, to show them how easy it is to write simple programs that tie both programming and math together. If you're attending T3, please let me know so I can give you a wave; for everyone else, I will do my best to record the session.
