You'll be inspired by this low-stress guide to a high-tech math learning tool!

Your TI-Nspire is unlike any mathematical tool you've ever seen, so you'll really appreciate this plain-English guide to what it can do and how to do it. From loading the batteries and creating a document to performing geometric calculations and constructing statistical graphs, you'll see how to use the TI-Nspire alone and with your PC.

  • Start here — set up your TI-Nspire handheld, get familiar with the keypad, use the function keys, and configure system settings

  • You need representation — grasp mathematical concepts more easily through multiple representations and linking representations

  • Document problems — create documents, add problems, configure page layout, and save your work for assignments or class notes

  • Be calculating — work with the calculator menu, tools, forms, and variables

  • Graphic or plane — use the graphing functions in the analytic view and work with geometric objects in the plane geometry view

  • List the spread — create and manage lists and spreadsheets and use this application with others for statistical calculations

  • Link up — connect the TI-Nspire handheld to your computer

Open the book and find:

  • How to connect your TI-Nspire handheld to your computer

  • Basics of entering and evaluating expressions

  • How to conduct data collection experiments

  • How to use CAS (Computer Algebra System) in algebra and calculus

  • Different methods of graphing a function

  • How to construct geometric objects

  • Steps for creating dot plots, histograms, box plots, and scatter plots

  • What the Notes function provides and how to use it

Synopsis:

That TI-Nspire handheld is unlike any math tool you’ve ever seen! Much more than a calculator, it’s a learning aid for mathematics from pre-algebra to calculus. TI-Nspire For Dummieswalks you through every amazing feature, showing you how to use this remarkable learning technology.

In plain English, you’ll learn everything from how to load the batteries and create a document to how to perform geometric calculations and construct statistical graphs. You’ll be able to:

  • Set up your TI-Nspire, get familiar with the keypad, use the d, e, /, x, c, and bfunction keys, and configure system settings
  • View graphical, algebraic, numeric, geometric, and written formats
  • Grasp mathematical concepts more easily through multiple and linking representations
  • Recognize how different concepts are linked by watching how a change in one representation appears in others
  • Work with the calculator menu, tools, forms, and variables
  • Create documents, add problems, configure page layout, and save your work for assignments or class notes
  • Use the graphing functions in the analytic view and work with geometric objects in the plane geometry view
  • Create and manage lists and spreadsheets and use this application with others for statistical calculations
  • Install the corresponding software on your computer and connect the handheld device to your PC

Written by a math teacher, TI-Nspire For Dummieshelps students and educators alike take full advantage of this outstanding tool for teaching and learning math.

About the Author

C. C. Edwards has a Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, and is currently teaching mathematics on the undergraduate and graduate levels. She has been using technology in the classroom since before Texas Instruments came out with its first graphing calculator, and she frequently gives workshops at national and international conferences on using technology in the classroom. She is the author of TI-83 Plus Graphing Calculator for Dummies and TI-84 Plus Graphing Calculator for Dummies and she has written 40 activities for the Texas Instruments Explorations Web site. She was an editor of Eightysomething!, a newsletter that used to be published by Texas Instruments. She still hasn’t forgiven TI for canceling that newsletter.

Just barely five feet tall, CC, as her friends call her, has three goals in life: to be six inches taller, to have naturally curly hair, and to be independently wealthy. As yet, she is nowhere close to meeting any of these goals. When she retires, she plans to become an old-lady carpenter.
