More tech for back to school. TI-Nspire CX

Boot Camp feature for Monday, September 5, 2011

More tech for back to school.    I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   Texas Instruments has joined Casio in adding a color screen to a graphing calculator.   The TI-Nspire CX has a lot more to offer as well.  Internet marketing director Terri Grosh…

It’s smaller, thinner.  It also has a rechargeable battery for the first time.  So now we’ve got a little bit more environmentally friendly.  The product also has 3D graphing.  So students and teachers can graph and rotate and manipulate 3D functions to really give them a better way to visualize and comprehend math and science concepts.”

Those and other features are impressive.  It can connects to Macs and PCs.  And it’s worth mentioning that graphing calculators can be used during SATs and many other standardized tests.   The TI-Nspire CX sells for about 150 dollars.   You can find us with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
