TI-36X Pro Arrives

Still no word on the arrival that everyone is waiting for, the TI-Nspire CX. In the meantime, however, Texas Instruments has provided me with another 2011 Spring arrival to take a look at, the TI-36X Pro. As far as I know, you can't find this in stores yet. Since it's not a graphing calculator the 36X Pro is much less hyped. in fact, I got puzzled looks from some of the Texas Instruments reps I spoke to at NCTM when I asked about it. Nonetheless, I'm excited to have a chance to review it. Here is a scientific calculator designed for those situations where a graphing calculator isn't allowed: a crotchety old teacher, certain standardized tests, and so on. It's got many of the desirable features of a graphing calculator (equation solver, calculus features, matrices) in the body of scientific calculator. If you're a subscriber, look for my TI-36X Pro review sometime in the next couple of weeks.
