Melissa Hourigan (QLD)

I am a Mathematics teacher at Murrumba State Secondary College, Queensland.  I began teaching in 1995 at Longreach SHS where I first used a TI-82 and TI-83 graphics calculator for teaching in my senior Mathematics classes.  After transferring to Redcliffe SHS in Brisbane I was given more opportunities to use the TI-83 and TI84 graphics calculators, as well as trialling the TI-84 Navigator system.  I have continued to use a range of TI calculators in both my junior and senior mathematics classes. Currently, I use TI-Nspire non-CAS and TI-Nspire Navigator to enhance my mathematics teaching while investigating ways to apply the flipped classroom pedagogy to my classroom. Contact Melissa
