TI has just issued a press release for their presence at an upcoming conference for math teachers. The conference looks as if it will feature prominently the TI-84 C, and the Nspire Apps for iPad, both of which have previously been covered here at Cemetech. It will also feature the presence of Mayim Bialik, who has taken on an ongoing role as a spokesperson for TI on the importance of good education in the STEM disciplines. Her relationship with TI has previously also been the subject of news coverage here at Cemetech.

DENVER (April 17, 2013) – Texas Instruments (TI) and its brand ambassador – actress and neuroscientist Mayim Bialik – are joining thousands of math educators at the NCTM 2013 Annual Meeting in Denver, Colorado, to share innovative new classroom technology including TI-NspireTM Apps for iPad® and the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition, as well as educator resources to increase student engagement and achievement in critical STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) subjects.

Bialik, who plays the loveably geeky neurobiologist Amy Farrah Fowler on the hit TV comedy "The Big Bang Theory," will give the opening keynote about her real-life role as a scientist and teacher tonight at 5:30 p.m. at the Bellco Theatre at the Colorado Convention Center. On Thursday, April 18, Bialik will join an experienced T3 Teachers Teaching with Technology instructor to teach an interactive math lesson with TI-Nspire CX technology at 9:30 a.m. in Four Seasons Room 2/3 at the Colorado Convention Center. She also will make a surprise appearance at the TI booth #217 sometime on Thursday.

Bialik is part of an exciting line-up from TI that showcases technology, online content and T3 professional development that improves math and science teaching and learning. At its booth and in conference sessions, TI will offer hands-on opportunities for teachers to experience the power of the TI-Nspire CX family of math and science technology including graphing handhelds, software and new TI-Nspire Apps for iPad, plus data collection tools for science and hundreds of free Math Nspired and Science Nspired classroom-ready activities. TI will also feature its latest color-screen graphing calculator, the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition.

In addition, TI will share strategies and best practices from leading math teachers, as well as technology, professional development and free classroom resources for implementing Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in Mathematics. Educators can learn more at the TI CCSS Solutions Booth, which is directly across from the TI booth #217.

"Every year we look forward to NCTM and the unique opportunity to interact with and learn from leading math educators throughout this conference," said Melendy Lovett, president of Texas Instruments Education Technology. "This year we are excited to introduce new professional development and curricular support for implementing Common Core State Standards and Mathematical Practices. Educators will also have the opportunity to get hands-on experience with our newest innovations for math and science teaching and learning. Additionally, we are excited to bring our brand ambassador Mayim Bialik to share her incredible journey and passion for inspiring all students to pursue a strong STEM education – a passion that she shares with TI."
