Texas Instruments, a provider of education and productivity solutions, released a case study on Ohio’s Canton City School District’s (CCSD) improved math scores on state assessment exams after an initiative to integrate TI’s Navigator Classroom Learning System and graphing calculators into classrooms. TI says all four of the district’s middle schools improved their scores on the most recent statewide math achievement test after the successful initiative. The federally funded program dubbed The Genesis Mathematics Project, integrated graphing technology into the Canton City District middle schools and trained teachers on the technology-based strategies to improve performance, the company said. “We were blown away by the results,” said Pam Bernabei-Rorrer, a CCSD math coach. “Students who used TI’s graphing calculators along with the TI-Navigator system achieved at a level three times greater than students who did not.”
