TI-Nspire Graphing Calculator
The TI-Nspire product line is a series of graphing calculators developed by Texas Instruments. This line currently includes the TI-Nspire, TI-Nspire CAS, TI-Nspire CX and TI-Nspire CX CAS. There are models aimed for Chinese market, named as TI-Nspire CM-C, TI-Nspire CX-C, TI-Nspire CM-C CAS, TI-Nspire CX-C CAS. There is also software available for Windows and Mac OS X that act in similar ways to the calculators and allow the user to create compatible files. This software either requires a license or can only be used for a limited time. However, Texas Instruments also provides a separate software that can be used for an unlimited time without a license but only allows file transfers and not emulation of the calculator
he TI-Nspire calculator offers the computing power of a computer algebra system in a convenient, hand-held size. Capable of linking with a computer, the Nspire can download, create, and save documents, as well perform a variety of mathematical operations. The Nspire offers fully manipulatable graphing, spreadsheets, statistics software, as well as regular calculating abilities. The Nspire can be used to explore and investigate mathematical topics such as slope, standard deviation, graphical transformations, and many other concepts.
Nspires come with a switchable keyboard, so they can transition between a CAS (Computer Algebra System) and regular graphing calculator (similar to the TI-84). They also come with a program that allows teachers to display the calculator on the SmartBoard, so that students can watch the teacher use it.
