gen-product-app-icon-question Question
The Question Application allows educators to write gradable or self-check questions to guide students through an activity.

Explore concepts

The built-in TI-SmartView™ emulator allows educators to project an interactive display of the TI-Nspire™ handheld screen and show multiple representations of a problem to help students visualize connections and keystrokes.


Maximize class time, maximize learning time

Create, customize, organize and share TI-Nspire™ documents and manage classroom activities by sending content to multiple student handhelds simultaneously. Use the TI-Nspire™ Docking Station to quickly transfer documents to up to 10 student handhelds at the same time.


Create questions for student self-assessment

The Question Application allows educators to write questions to guide students through an activity; using the self-check feature, students can check their current level of understanding and decide if they can move on to the next mathematical concept.
