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

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.

This book makes the TI-89 understandable. If you are taking any math classes above 90 you will need it. It really helps with Statistics. It's a pretty complex calculator so if your not good with technical stuff? Get the book!!
