I first used the programs to help me review for the Praxis 601 exam. This exam is required to become a certified High School Math teacher if you did not get your degree in education.
Now that I am a teacher, I use the TI89 apps with my students in an after school tutoring program. They give me the chance to work with more students, because my upper level students can use the calculator to get step by step examples worked out for them, while I work with other students.
I love the Made Easy apps and so do my students!!!!!
They help to relieve the frustration of not knowing how to proceed with a question and most students try even harder, so they do not have to use the calculator to get the next step!
Thanks for your help!
