Given the serious shortage of people with STEM skills right across Europe what can teachers do to help resolve the problem? TI graphing technology provides first class solutions to bridging mathematics and science via collecting and modelling data.
The TI-Innovator™, with its ability to control devices, presents the opportunity to further collaborate across subjects and allow students to move from the abstract to the concrete.
All students can write simple programmes to switch devices on and off and some will develop their skills to use feedback and control to solve problems. We must build on the purely analogue world of science and the logical constructs of mathematics and allow students to understand through programming how the modern digital environment is being shaped.
