TI-Nspire Tutorials Volume 2: Using the CAS Like a Champion

I am pleased to announce the official release of my second TI-Nspire Tutorials book, TI-Nspire Tutorials Volume 2: Using the CAS Like a Champion. As the title suggests, volume 2 is focused on CAS features. I’m excited to offer it to anyone who wants to learn more about any version of the TI-Nspire CAS, whether you have the TI-Nspire CAS in CX, Touchpad, or Clickpad (although button sequences will differ if you have the original Clickpad).

After volume 1 of my book series, I turned my attention to the CAS because I’ve received so many requests for more information about it. That’s really no surprise. While there are a lot of books and other resources about the TI-Nspire, I’ve actually not seen a lot of information out there about the TI-Nspire CAS. This book covers the various CAS commands like solving equations, factoring, derivatives, integrals, differential equations, and much, much more. While I feel the book will be a benefit to anyone trying to learn more about the TI-Nspire CAS, I have written it for students and teachers of algebra through calculus.

The second part of the title is a tribute to the students of the Morton math team that I coach. While there are many components that factored into your Illinois state math team championship this spring, there’s no doubt in my mind that mastery of the TI-Nspire CAS was a crucial one. In this book, I’ve tried to focus in on the very same TI-Nspire CAS techniques that I use with those students.

This book is a little more technical than volume 1, both with the mathematics involved and the level of detail with the TI-Nspire. If you’re a complete newcomer to the TI-Nspire, I would still recommend starting with volume 1. Just like in volume 1, I have included many screen captures to guide you in this book, and once again, everything is up to date with TI-Nspire OS 3.2. If you don’t have the latest version of the OS, I’ve included directions on how to upgrade for free.

I am also offering a special deal to everyone who follows me this week. Volume 2 will be available on Saturday, August 11 for just $.99. After that, it’ll be $6.99, just like volume 1. I would love to do the free offer again, but that locked me into an exclusive deal with Amazon. This time, I am hoping to have volume 2 out for iBooks and the Nook around the end of the month. I am also working towards having a print version of each book out soon.

Lastly, I just want to say thanks to all of you for supporting the first book. I have already received numerous positive reviews and “likes” on Amazon for my first book. I really appreciate that, and it has encouraged me to release more resources for students and teachers. I’ve had a lot of suggestions about which direction to head after volume 2, including requests for other calculators. Right now, my plan is to create a DVD for each of the books, but please keep the suggestions coming. I love all of the ideas.
