Teacher Learning System

Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, OK

*The TI-83 Teacher Learning System (TI-83 TLS)*

The Teacher Learning System for the TI-83 graphing calculator (TI-83 TLS)
has been developed to assist the secondary mathematics teacher with learning
about this technology as well as designing and managing instruction using
it *appropriately* in the delivery of the secondary mathematics curriculum.
This may seem like a monumental task at this point! We hope teachers will
find this is not the case and will approach this new challenge confidently
and enthusiastically.

The components of the TI-83 TLS are:

- Independent Study Written Materials
- Graphing Calculator Programs and Functions for Algebra, Statistics, Trigonometry, and Calculus
- Video Supplements: Learning to Use the TI-83; Using Algebra, Statistics, Trigonometry, and Calculus Programs; Programming the TI-83; Suggestions for Designing and Managing Instruction
- Listings of Calculator Programs

The TI-83 TLS has been developed to help you learn about the TI-83 graphing calculator using written materials, programs, and a video supplement.
