Introducing TI-Nspire™ CX Premium Teacher Software

Present concepts, encourage discussion and assess understanding with software that turns a teacher’s PC or Mac® into a virtual TI-Nspire™ CX II graphing calculator.

Python logo Python programming is now available on TI-Nspire™ CX II
family graphing calculators and software.


Next-generation teacher software

This innovative demonstration and class management software emulates the TI-Nspire™ CX family of graphing calculators and supports the wireless TI-Nspire™ CX Navigator™ System.

New features open new paths to understanding

Create opportunities for hands-on engagement with added interactive features.

  • 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.
  • Python Programming
    Create and run Python programs.
  • TI-Basic programming enhancements
    Write code for visual illustration of key math, science and STEM ideas.

The CAS version of the TI-Nspire™ CX Premium Teacher Software enhancements also include:

  • 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.

Go beyond graphing

The premium teacher software includes the same math, science and statistics applications that are built into the TI-Nspire™ CX family of graphing calculators.

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

Open a window to student understanding

Get the kids talking about concepts

Encourage students to explain their work, defend their thinking and lead the class with the built-in Live Presenter, which allows them to connect their calculators to the teacher software and project their screens.

Maximize learning time

Premium teacher software includes numeric and Computer Algebra System (CAS) versions for maximum flexibility when demonstrating concepts, relationships and calculator usage.

TI-Nspire™ CX Navigator™ System

Gain real-time insights into student thinking

The premium teacher package includes software that supports the TI-Nspire™ CX Navigator™ System, a wireless interactive solution that supports effective, real-time formative assessment, classroom management, and collaborative exploration and discovery.

While the TI-Nspire™ CX Navigator™ System is built into the premium teacher package, it requires additional hardware that is purchased separately.
