TI-Nspire Applications

• CALCULATOR – Enter and view expressions, equations and formulas exactly as they appear in math textbooks. Quickly and easily select the proper syntax, symbols and variables from a template that supports standard mathematical notation. Scroll through previous entries to explore outcomes and patterns.
• GRAPHS – Graph and explore functions, animate points on objects or graphs and explain their behavior, and much more.
• GEOMETRY – Create and explore geometric shapes.
• LISTS & SPREADSHEET – Capture and track the values of a graph and collected data, and observe number patterns. Organize the results of statistical analysis. Capabilities similar to using computer spreadsheets: label columns, insert formulas into cells, select individual cells and change their size, and more.
• DATA & STATISTICS – Summarize statistical data using different graphical methods. Manipulate and explore data – watch how changes in data can affect the statistical analysis. Create "quick graphs". Perform a variety of descriptive and inferential statistical calculations on real data sets.
• NOTES – Put the math in writing. Include the word problem with its solutions and explain problem-solving approaches – right in the handheld or computer software. Question-and-answer templates allow educators to prompt students to show solutions.
• VERNIER DATAQUEST – Create a hypothesis graphically and replay data collection experiments. Use in conjunction with the TI-Nspire Lab Cradle.

Features and Functionality

• Utilize images (jpeg, jpg, bmp, png file formats), including photos
• 3D graphing
• Includes an easy-glide Touchpad that works more like a computer with a mouse.
• See multiple representations of a single problem - algebraic, graphical, geometric, numeric and written.
• Explore individual representations, one at a time, or as many as four on the same screen.
• Grab a graphed function and move it to see the effect on corresponding equations and data lists
• "Link" representations: Manipulate the properties of one and observe instant updates to others without switching screens
• Solve equations while avoiding arithmetic errors
• Built-in interactive geometry capabilities.
• Easy-to-use computer features:
• Simple drop-down menus - emulate the intuitive operation of familiar computer features
• Quick alpha keys
• Save and review work - create, edit and save problem solving in documents and pages similar to the word processing and file storage features of a computer.
• Connectivity – easily link with another TI-Nspire family handheld or a PC for easy file transfer
• Features a dedicated programming environment as well as programming libraries for global access to user-defined functions & programs

Research

• Students learn mathematical concepts more readily with deeper understanding when they learn across different forms of representation
• Students using TI-Nspire handhelds have demonstrated deeper understanding and greater abilities in drawing inferences
• Appropriate use of TI-Nspire technology can facilitate use of shared resources for collaborative learning, high student engagement, and a novel, integrated format for instructional units. Beliefs that the calculator is an aid to learning mathematics (not just an efficiency device)
