Motion adds a new dimension of engagement in math, science and coding

Programming Rover to move is a fun way to explore topics and concepts in middle grades and high school, promote collaborative problem-solving and spark lively conversations.

TI graphing calculators

TI-Nspire™ CX family and TI-84 Plus CE graphing calculators open new channels for inquiry, exploration and connection as students use the built-in TI-Basic coding language to program the TI-Innovator™ components.

Your ride is here

Plug-and-play ready

The TI-Innovator™ Rover is out-of-the-box ready to connect to the TI-Innovator™ Hub, which is placed in a special bay on Rover. Either a TI-84 Plus CE or TI-Nspire™ CX family graphing calculator is secured with clamps on top of Rover.

Motivate students to think differently

Rover rolls over roadblocks to learning by providing students with a new way to experience — not just see — math. The physical representation creates an additional entry point to problem-solving that connects math, coding and movement.

Take the on-ramp to robotics

Rover is an introduction to coding and robotics. The simple programming language that is built into TI graphing technology makes it easy to program the system, run it and troubleshoot to correct or fine-tune performance.

Make math a moving experience

Motion enables students to engage in math from a new perspective. Rover puts math in their world in a way that encourages them to ask, “what if ...?” and inspires them to persist in finding solutions to make the vehicle perform the way they want it to.

Built for the classroom

A durable, rechargeable battery powers Rover’s two motors. The vehicle also includes a color sensor, a distance sensor, an LED display, a holder for a marker to draw paths on paper, and a gyroscope to measure heading.

Unlimited opportunities

Rover’s design allows for access to the TI-Innovator™ Hub input and output ports, so students can add additional capabilities to their Rover experience.
