Meet the Author

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.

    great resource...

    Quick read, easy to follow and understand. Great intro to nspire and CAS tools. Not designed to be an in-depth resource guide. I bought it to get me going with my new nspire cx cas, after upgrading from my last generation ti graphing calculator. The nspire and CAS were a sharp departure from the ti83 and ti86 I used, and I needed guidance in getting my head around and re-thinking my approach to using a graphing calculator to assist me in my work. I had played with my new nspire for a few days, but wasn't feeling comfortable enough with it to use it with my work. The author, without getting too verbose, articulated just what I needed to get around my difficulty in making the jump. He's a math teacher whose approach clearly showed he has experience in showing people how to effectively adjust from older tools to this new technology. He also seemed very passionate about his audience. He even launched his first volume in this series for free on another Site, just because they allowed him to do so for free for the first 90 days...
