After returning from the USACAS 9 conference, I reflected on the barriers to incorporating CAS into education. The most common thing I heard was the technology was not available. I did not have an answer more than if you get a chance to request technology put it on the list. I was not satisfied with my answer, so I started thinking. Where is the CAS? There is a TI-Nspire CAS app for iPads, TI-Nspire software for computers, and of course the handheld. Easy right? Not if you have only $500 or less to spend for everything in your classroom. If you had to choose between a new computer or CAS, what would you choose? If your school finally were getting wireless slates/iPads with Doceri, would you decline for CAS? There are no easy answers to these questions, but maybe there is a compromise. What if we didn’t push for classroom sets but school sets? What if we asked for the TI-Nspire CAS app to be placed on the school iPad lab? What if the one iPad with Doceri we got for our classroom had the CAS app on it? I think we could still change the classroom environment and open doors. All administrators look at one thing: prove the students are learning. All we have to do is prove the students are learning with CAS, and I believe doors will open. I plan to start by sharing my original TI-Nspire CAS set with fellow teachers. I have upgraded but refused to let the old ones go. Now I hope to give new meaning to recycling.
