Texas Instruments Ti-Nspire CX Graphing Calculator
You may still remember that scientific calculator you had in middle school, that one with a lot of buttons that you hardly ever used. While we now live in an era where super-computers can give us the answer to our complex mathematical and scientific problems, it is still best to learn and understand the complex principles behind such problem-solving activities. There’s no better way to do it than with Texas Instrument’s TI-Nspire CX Graphing Calculator.
The first thing you’ll notice is that it is an awfully large calculator. But this serves more than just a simple calculator. It comes fully integrated with a large-enough color LCD that gives you the ability to import digital images and then overall math equations and graphs on these images to have an idea of how scientific and mathematical principles operate in the real world. This makes math and science appreciation a lot easier especially for students and adults who may find the concepts too abstract to grasp.
The problem with conventional calculators is that they don’t give you the whole picture of the equation. In most cases you’ll only get a string of characters that it is very easy to miss an entry. That’s not happening with the Nspire CX. This calculator uses its large screen to display math templates so all learners have to do is to enter the values. Formulas, math symbols, and stacked fractions can be easily entered into the Nspire CX and watch the magic come alive.
The way the Nspire CX was designed is more of a computer rather than a calculator, complete with drop-down menus for easier navigation through the different functions. That being said, one can always create, edit, and save documents on the go.
The TI-Nspire CX simplifies the way we learn about complicated math and science concepts. This may also be a perfect gift for nerds in your life.
