Product Description
This is a very versatile unit, It can be used early in the year as an introduction to TI 83/84 graphing calculators for Algebra I students. Or it can be used later in the year after state testing, as preparation for the upcoming year (this is how I have used it for years). My 8th grade students are very restless and lack much interest in school after state testing, So, I break out the calculators and they are in total AWE! So, it serves as a nice break.

This file contains all you need for about a week of work:
* A blank TI 84 template for students to fill in the uses for the important keys
* A page of notes that teachers can go with students demonstrating key strokes, thus allowing visual and tactile learners both notes and hands on practice. I usually spend two days with this process and allow students to practice and explore.
*Two worksheets (WS1 is more basic functions, WS 2 goes more in depth). I use both of them in back to back days.
*Two version of a quiz (in case eyes wander)

As always, keys are included for the worksheets and quizzes.

After we do this, we use the calculators to complete many real world projects. These financial units are very intriguing for my junior high students. If you are looking for creative ways to keep your students engaged these final few months, you might look at these:
