Explore higher-level math concepts

Explore symbolic algebra and symbolic calculus, in addition to standard numeric calculations. View exact values – in the form of variables such as x and y, radicals and pi – when doing step-by-step arithmetic, algebraic and calculus calculations.

Make mathematical connections

View multiple representations at the same time and recognise updates to representations as things change mathematically; promote conceptual understanding regardless of students’ individual learning styles.

Create dynamic documents

Use the PublishView™ feature to add TI-Nspire™ applications, rich text, hyperlinks, images or videos and create interactive worksheets, lab reports and homework assignments.

Bring concepts into view

In addition to the normal computer view, you can also work on documents in the special handheld view, which shows documents as they appear on the TI-Nspire™ CX CAS handheld display.

Share files with ease

Students can easily transfer work between their TI-Nspire™ CX CAS handheld and computer to complete work outside of school, at home, or at the library.

Handheld-software bundle

Take home TI-Nspire™ CX CAS Student Software and the TI-Nspire™ CX CAS handheld together in a single package. Make an all-in-one purchase at your retailer.
