What is Lua?
Lua is a powerful, fast scripting language that is supported by TI-Nspire™ teaching and learning technology. Using the Script Editor that is built in to TI-Nspire™ software, educators, students, developers and content publishers can:
Script engaging math and science activities and simulations and insert them in free, downloadable TI-Nspire™ documents (.tns)
Create dynamic, interactive programs that can be shared across the TI-Nspire™ family to meet specific curriculum needs
Develop custom applications that function like TI-Nspire™ built-in app; copied and pasted in other .tns documents; and split-screened to communicate with other apps
|Create new teaching and learning opportunities |
Educators and students can use Lua to add new dimensions of functionality to their TI-Nspire™ technology — including TI-Nspire™ software, the TI-Nspire™ family of handhelds and the TI-Nspire™ Apps for iPad®
|Take TI-Nspire™ technology out of the classroom |
Lua scripting is ideal for a wider programming community seeking a powerful but simple-to-use programming and gaming platform. Developers already are sharing work and learning from one another on existing online communities.
|Develop content for global distribution |
Publishers and TI alliance partners around the world will find Lua perfect for math and science content development.
