Learning to Code with the TI-Nspire™ Technology

This workshop is designed for educators interested in introducing coding to their students using TI-Nspire™ technology. Building upon the lessons from TI’s 10 Minutes of Code, the workshop introduces the basics of coding principles including logic, selection statements and loops.

A focus will be on coding topics which will reinforce student understanding of math and science curriculum concepts. Participants should be comfortable with using TI-Basic and transferrable skills to move to the next stage in coding.

By the end of the workshop, participants will be comfortable with:

  • Starting a new program, writing a program to display text and running the program
  • Using global and local variables in a program and understand the differences between global and local variables
  • Writing statements using IF and conditions
  • Using compound conditions with the relational and the logical operators
  • Determining errors in a program


This is a one-day, in-person workshop. It may be combined with the “Learning to Code With TI-Innovator™ Hub” workshop for a two-day program. A half-day workshop option is also available. A virtual workshop is also available in multiple two- or three-hour sessions.

During this workshop, participants will learn to:

  • Use the TI-Basic Program Editor to create and run programs
  • Use simple editing features to insert and delete entries or lines of code
  • Evaluate expressions and store them as variables
  • Recognize programing features including conditions, relational operators, logical operators, and simple and compound conditions
  • Perform the basic steps for debugging a simple program

Areas of Focus

This workshop connects coding to curriculum concepts. No experience on TI-Nspire™ technology will be required as basic skills on TI-Nspire™ technology will be covered as they are needed.

Subject Topics
Program Basics
Write a program to evaluate a mathematical or scientific formula.
Assigning Values to Variables
Write a program that uses a person's weight on Earty to determine his or her weight on the moon, Mars and Jupiter.
Conditional Statements
Analyze and adjust lines of code for a program that computes the slope of a line.
Loops and Graphics
Debug and improve a program that determines the possible dimensions of a rectangle when given its perimeter.
