Getting Started with Python Programming

Using Python with TI-Nspire™ products you can:

add Python programs to TNS files
create Python programs using templates
interact and share data with other TI-Nspire™ apps
interact with the TI-Innovator™ Hub and TI-Innovator™ Rover

The TI-Nspire™ Python implementation is based on MicroPython, which is a small subset of the Python 3 standard library designed to run on microcontrollers. The original MicroPython implementation has been adapted for use by TI.

Note: Some numeric answers may vary from the Calculator results due to differences in the underlying math implementations.
