DALLAS, March 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Instruments (TI) today introduced the new TI-Nspire™ CX II line of graphing calculators, featuring a 2 ½ times faster processor, an updated modern look and interactive math and coding features that will help bring STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) subjects to life for students. Building on the popular TI-Nspire CX line of graphing calculators, the new TI-Nspire CX II and TI-Nspire CX II CAS give students more opportunities to visualize important, abstract concepts, not just in math class, but in science and computer programming courses.
"Students and teachers asked us to make their graphing calculator more responsive as they are using it increasingly to explore an array of complex STEM concepts," said Peter Balyta, Ph.D., president of TI Education Technology. "Teachers who experience the new TI-Nspire CX II will immediately appreciate the improved visuals on the screen, faster processor and robust, new features that help students explore STEM."
Teachers will also appreciate that the key placement, navigation and computer menus are the same as earlier TI-Nspire models, so they can continue to use their current classroom lessons. Parents will appreciate that a one-time purchase of a TI-Nspire CX II or CX II CAS will take students through all of their math and science courses in middle school, high school and college– everything from chemistry to calculus and can even help them learn to code.
The TI-Nspire CX II graphing calculator is allowed on high-stakes exams, including the PSAT/NMSQT*, SAT* and ACT® college entrance exams as well as Advanced Placement* and IB® exams that allow or require a graphing calculator. The TI-Nspire CX II and CX II CAS will be available for purchase at major retail stores in time for back to school 2019.
