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.


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.

Engagement for real-world experience

Add physical computing by connecting Python to the TI-Innovator™ Hub with TI LaunchPad™ Board and TI-Innovator™ Rover to help students interact with the world around them as they participate in real-life STEM projects.

Use data produced from your Python program in other applications on the TI-Nspire™ CX II graphing calculator, such as Lists & Spreadsheet, graphs and more.
