Teaching math today is much more than demonstrating long division and graphing points on a chalkboard. Today’s educators need to know how to use the tools that make teaching and learning math as up-to-date as possible.

Recently, future mathematics teacher Troy Knoblauch of Bourbonnais presented a 90-minute workshop at the Illinois Council of Teachers of Mathematics (ICTM) annual conference in Peoria, Illinois on “An introduction to Geometry on the TiNspire Graphing Calculator.”

Presenting with Knoblauch was Dr. Dianna Galante, associate professor of mathematics at Governors State University. Knoblauch is a student in the Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics Teacher Education program at GSU. He is currently a student teacher at Lincoln Way Central High School in New Lenox.
