A few months ago my husband got a letter in the mail that stated he needed a graphing calculator for his upcoming math class, we knew we didn’t have one and would have to purchase one. We headed to our local Office Max and checked out the graphing calculators, we then came home so I could research a few when I came across the TI-Nspire™ CX Handheld. Compared to my graphing calculator from college this Texas Instruments TI‑Nspire CX Graphing Calculator looked like a mini computer, “import images” and “colored screen”? I was quite jealous.
The TI-Nspire™ CX Handheld is ideal for Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1&2, Trigonometry, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Statistics, Business & Finance, Physics, Chemistry and more.
Graphing Calculator Features:
- Includes 20MB of internal memory.
- Large display measures 3.5″ diagonally, 320 x 240 resolution.
- Alphanumeric display allows you to combine text with numbers.
- Automatically shuts off when not in use to save battery power.
- Has a full-color backlit screen.
- Includes a rechargeable battery.
Visualize in full color:
Color-code equations, objects, points and lines on the full-color, backlit display. Make faster, stronger connections between equations, graphs and geometric representations on screen.
Use digital images or your own photos. Overlay and color-code math and science concepts. Discover real-world connections.
Recharge with ease:
The TI-Nspire Rechargeable Battery, installed with the handheld, is expected to last up to two weeks of normal use on a single charge. No alkaline batteries needed.
Calculate in style:
The sleek TI-Nspire CX handheld is the thinnest and lightest TI graphing calculator model to date. It’s also the brightest with a high-resolution, full-color display that makes it easy to see every exponent, variable and line.
Graph and rotate (manually and automatically) 3D functions. Change the wire or surface color of your 3D graph.
My husband has been using his TI-Nspire CX Handheld for the past few weeks, it is far more complex then his basic calculator and it took a little bit to get used to. There are many features that he will be using this year and many that he will not need including the science portion but he will need them for future classes. This one calculator will do it all and we will not have to purchase another one for awhile, if ever.
The screen on the Texas Instruments TI‑Nspire CX Graphing Calculator is in color, and very easy to read, I personally like the drop down menus. It connects to a computer or laptop so you can easily transfer your work so you can edit it on the computer.
You can purchase the Texas Instruments TI‑Nspire Graphing Calculator for $165 at a variety of retailers including Office Max, Staples, Office Depot, and Amazon.com.
