TI-Nspire™ CX CAS Student Software

Powerful computer software with a Computer Algebra System (CAS) that satisfies math and science curriculum needs from middle school through college.

Where to Buy

Open new paths to understanding

New and faster interactive features motivate students to see and interact with math and science more deeply:

  • Animated path plot
    Visualize function, parametric and polar graphs as they are drawn in real time.
  • Dynamic coefficient values
    Explore direct connections between dynamic coefficients in equations and graphs.
  • Points by coordinates
    Create dynamic points defined by coordinates, sliders or expressions quickly.
  • Tick-mark labels
    Label axes scales to create visual contexts that promote understanding.
  • TI-Basic programming enhancements
    Write code for visual illustration of key math, science and STEM ideas.
  • deSolve wizard
    Reduce syntax errors in solving differential equations.
  • Disable CAS
    Disable algebraic functionality easily in the Press-to-Test dialog box or in document settings.

Calculate, graph, write notes, build spreadsheets and collect data, all with the TI-Nspire™ CX Student Software.

Calculator
Perform calculations in proper math notation.
Lists & Spreadsheet
Combine spreadsheet functionality with mathematical operations.
Graphs
Plot, explore and animate functions, equations and inequalities.
Data & Statistics
Dynamic graphing and interactive analysis of data.
Geometry
Construct and explore dynamically geometric figures and properties.
Notes
Create interactive activities, documents or reports.
DataQuest™
Plug and play data collection and scientific analysis.
Programming
Add new functionality and create rich STEM activities with Python and TI-Basic coding languages.

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 recognize 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.
