RESTON – April 10, 2020 – National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) authors Mike Houston and Lindsay Gold offer a live webinar, It All Makes Sense: Connecting Mathematics With Financial Literacy, through the Live T3™ Webinars hosted by Texas Instruments (TI). The webinar, May 5 at 7:00 p.m. CST, explores financial literacy using both TI-84 Plus CE and TI-Nspire™ CX II graphing calculators.
Houston and Gold are co-authors on the elementary school title in a series of books published by NCTM that demonstrate how to incorporate financial literacy into mathematics for all grade levels. The On the Money series provides financial lessons and activities using everyday topics that bring the math concepts to life.
Included in the series are the following titles:
On the Money: Mathematics Activities to Build Financial Literacy K–Grade 5
On the Money: Math Activities to Build Financial Literacy Grades 6–8
On the Money: High School Mathematics Activities to Build Financial Literacy
Webinar attendees will receive a discount code valid for 20 percent off the list price of these titles between May 4 and May 13 in the NCTM online store.
“Money competencies are essential life skills, and we believe that their authentic application can be easily integrated into any classroom,” says Gold. “This webinar uses activities from NCTM’s On the Money series with the benefits of TI technology to show educators how they can help their students on the path to becoming more financially literate.”
Other webinars in the TI webinar series include Celebrating Earth Day: Applied Mathematics for Grades Seven to 12 With Social Implications, presented by Tom Reardon; Music Is Math With Feelings, presented by David Sword; The Flipped Classroom With TI Technology, by Tammy Casey and Audrey Cucci; and The Top 10 Features of the TI-Nspire™ CX Navigator™ System, presented by Fred Ferneyhough and Doug Roberts.
