Features summary

Vernier EasyLink® USB sensor interface
The TI-Nspire™ family of graphing calculators works seamlessly with the EasyLink® to make data collection fun, faster, more accurate and more intuitive to users. EasyLink® individually connects more than 40 standard Vernier sensors to the USB port of any TI-Nspire™ family graphing calculator. 

As soon as a sensor is plugged in, students can start to quickly and easily collect and analyze a wider variety of data such as pH, light, pressure and more. The TI-Nspire™ family of graphing calculators automatically detects the USB EasyLink® sensor and launches the Vernier DataQuest™ App to begin data collection.

Vernier DataQuest™ App for TI-Nspire™ technology
For labs in which only one sensor is used at a time, the TI-Nspire™ family graphing calculator or computer software enables students and teachers to plug in a sensor through the EasyLink® interface. Press Start, and begin collecting data. It’s that easy.

Once the data is collected, students can use the integrated Vernier DataQuest™ App to determine whether the data is linear or nonlinear. Prior to collecting data, they can use the Draw Prediction feature to test their hypothesis by drawing their prediction directly on the graph in which the data is displayed. Exploring nature with sensors has never been easier.

Vernier EasyTemp® USB temperature sensor
The EasyTemp® sensor, connecting directly to the USB port of any TI-Nspire™ family graphing calculator, offers an easy, accurate and inexpensive way to get students started with real-world data collection. 

TI-Nspire™ family graphing calculators automatically detect the USB EasyTemp® sensor and launch the Vernier DataQuest™ App to begin data collection.
