About Lucas Allen

Lucas Allen has been interested in math and technology for as long as he can remember. He has taught math at the high school level since 2001, first at Danville High School and later at Morton High School, including every class from Pre-Algebra through AP Calculus.

Allen has also coached academic teams at Morton, including the math team, WYSE team (Worldwide Youth in Science and Engineering), and chess team. In recent years, his math teams have been particularly successful, putting together a run of four straight top 3 state finishes, highlighted by the 2012 Illinois State Championship.

In the summer of 2010, Allen launched Tech Powered Math, a site designed to assist teachers, students, and parents with information about math education technologies. The site rapidly grew in popularity, and by early 2011, Tech Powered Math was cited as a source by both Engadget and CNET for Allen's story on the release of the TI-Nspire CX, Texas Instruments' first color graphing calculator. His interest in graphing calculators led him to author his first book, TI-Nspire (TM) Tutorials, How to Dominate Math With the TI-Nspire Graphing Calculator. Vol 1, The TI-Nspire for Beginners.

Allen's interests include a variety of technologies. He is the rare mobile electronics aficionado who enjoys both Android and iOS and is the proud owner of both a Samsung Galaxy S2 and an iPad 2.

He is also interested in the technologies of internet marketing, such as social media, email marketing, and search engine optimization. In his evening hours, he has worked as a one man internet marketing firm for small businesses in Central Illinois.

Allen resides in East Peoria, IL with his wife Kathleen and daughter Rachel.

I agree with the previous reviewer and add the same book on Amazon is the same price and with 26 pages more, why?
Another detail is "IT-NspireTM Tutorials: How to Dominate Math With the TI-Nspire Graphing Calculator Smashwords Edition Volume 2" on the first page, which means Smashwords edition? It would be better SNACKWORDS!
The donkey, here, did not read the review, and lost $ 4.99. It served as a lesson!

Not recommended for anyone who has prior calculator experience. This book is too basic for $4.99. Most of the useful references from the book are links to external resources that can be found online (ie: Texas Instruments own web site or wikipedia)- in fact, I looked at many of them before buying this book, thinking that this book would at least collect all that knowledge into one convenient book. My $4.99 would have been better spent on a Nspire Dummies book.

A very well written book. This book is much easier to use the TI-Nspire than TI's documentation. I recommend it for anyone wanting to come up to speed quickly on the TI-Nspire.
