How can TI help you teach computer science?

TI makes it fun and easy for students to write their very own programs. The TI-Nspire™ CX II and TI-84 Plus CE Python graphing calculators come with Python preloaded and ready to code with built-in smart features that help beginners get started.

Menu-driven coding

Less typing, less frustration. Many coding functions are organized in simple menu options with clear descriptions, helping students avoid spelling and syntax errors.

Clear prompts and colors

Our graphing calculators help students understand what steps to take when coding. In-line prompts and color-coded fonts make writing programs simpler for beginners.

 

Automatic formatting

Python requires indentation for concepts like loops. TI’s Python editor automatically indents when it’s required to offer students a more seamless learning experience.
