Python and TI-Nspire™ CX II technology — the next step in coding and STEM

Prepare students for their future with Python, a programming language that’s easy to learn and used across many industries. Now available on TI-Nspire™ CX II family graphing calculators and software, it’s a great portable programming platform that seamlessly integrates into your math, science, engineering or computer science classrooms.

Learn with easy-to-use interfaces 

Coding with Python is simple with TI-Nspire™ CX II family graphing calculators. The dynamic, object-oriented implementation helps students achieve mastery quickly, with minimum effort. 

Menu-driven coding

In addition to avoiding spelling mistakes and syntax errors, menu-driven coding helps students discover desired functions rather than having to memorize and hand-type everything.

In-line prompts

Speed up programming with in-line prompts, auto-indentation, intuitive prompts and more to assist new and experienced coders.

Python modules

The Python implementation on TI-Nspire™ CX II family graphing calculators includes access to commonly used Python modules, like math, random, cmath and time.

TI PlotLib

Visualize and analyze data, plus discover relationships and patterns, while coding plots and graphs with the built-in ti_plotlib Python module.

TI-Innovator Hub™ and Rover

Dive into STEM projects, and bring it all together, with built-in Python modules that control the TI-Innovator™ Hub and
TI-Innovator™ Rover.

Note: The Rover animation is a visual illustration; its functionality is not available on the calculator screen.

TI Draw

Let your inner artist and mathematician loose with the ti_draw Python module. Discover beauty in object-oriented data structure.

STEM in motion

TI-Innovator™ Hub technologies

With the TI-Nspire™ CX II graphing calculators, students can write code and run experiments with the TI-Innovator™ Hub and the TI-Innovator™ Rover robotic vehicle — a seamless solution to many different STEM projects

Take advantage of the benefits for your students and classroom:

  • Ideal for projects that integrate several subjects with each other.
  • Allows students to see the direct result of what is being programmed.
  • Optimally adapted to your current curriculum.
  • Motivates students to succeed when the vehicle moves according to their programming.

Dash Robot with TI technology

Wirelessly connect your TI-Nspire™ CX II graphing calculator to the Dash Robot from Wonder Workshop — and get ready to code and roll. Students can develop real-world STEM and programming skills while making the robot drive, spin, talk and more.

Write code to collect data

Empower students to code their own data collection programs. The TI Bluetooth® Adapter and Python module for Vernier Go Direct® sensors add a new dynamic to learning the basics of coding and data collection and analysis for math and science exploration.

Collect data with coding


Connect with BBC micro:bit

Already using the BBC micro:bit? Enhance students' experience with the micro:bit by writing and running Python programs directly from your TI-Nspire™ CX II graphing calculator. They will also benefit from the quick interaction with the display and keypad while the micro:bit is tethered to the calculator.
