TI-Nspire is the ultimate value buy, lasting from algebra through college-level math (that’s up to 10 years!) Unlike clothes or gadgets like cell phones, you won’t have to replace it with something trendier next year… and research shows that graphing calculators help kids do better in math – which can help them get into college and ultimately, set them up for future success.

Benefits & Features

• 2 calculators plus computer software, all in one! Includes two interchangeable keypads that allow students to use the TI-Nspire features, or use a keypad that mimics the TI-84 Plus and TI-83 Plus calculators, the leading graphing calculators used in U.S. schools. Included computer software brings the TI-Nspire experience to a PC or Mac.

•Like a computer in your hand. The versatile graphing calculator has the computer features students demand, including a large, high-resolution screen, interactive graphing capabilities, drop down menus and a built-in cursor which help students interact with math concepts and explore problem solving strategies in real-time.

• Save and review work. Thanks to electronic document capabilities and built-in 20MB of storage, students can create, save and edit their work similar to the word processing and file storage of a computer.

• Allowed on the SAT.* Also permitted on the ACT and AP* tests and many state math exams. With the purchase of the TI-Nspire, students can download free test prep questions from The Princeton Review.

• Free homework help. Stuck on a problem? Free online access to math tutors from Tutor.com is included with the purchase of the TI-Nspire.
