TI-36X Pro Review

TI-36X Pro Review

A couple of months ago, I was flipping through a math teacher supply catalogue, looking at the pictures of the new TI-Nspire CX and Casio Prizm, when something caught my eye. It was an add for a scientific calculator that I had never seen. “TI-36X Pro Scientifc Calculator with calculus, available soon,” read the headline.Continue Reading

Texas Instruments Strikes Back: Announces Color TI-Nspire CX

When I contacted Texas Instruments a few weeks back to ask about an FCC filing TI had made involving WIFI for the TI-Nspire Navigator system, I had no idea that my inquiry would lead me to a web conference with the product line strategy manager for the TI-Nspire, Mark Fry.

TI-Voyage 200 Review

Looking for a TI-Voyage cheap? You will get the best price when you buy the TI-Voyage 200 on Ebay.com. Probably the most powerful graphing calculator on the market today is the TI-Voyage 200. The TI-Voyage is the phoenix born from the ashes of the TI-92. After a nice run by the TI-92, Texas Instruments decided it neededContinue Reading

Texas Instruments TI-Navigator Review

I got a chance to check out TI-Navigator up close and personal over the weekend as part of the TI User group I’m a part of. Texas Instruments has put together an impressive product here, with far greater capabilities than I was expecting. Essentially, TI-Navigator gives a teacher the ability to connect their computer to an entire classroom of TI-84 plus or TI-Nspire calculators.Continue Reading
