Enlarge and Display Screen
With a TI ViewScreen, it's a snap to enlarge and project a TI calculator's display so the entire class can see it easily. This special LCD panel Also called a "projection panel," it is a data projector that accepts computer output and displays it on a see-through liquid crystal screen that is placed on top of an overhead projector. See data projector. works with any regular overhead projector. Each ViewScreen set includes a carrying case, the ViewScreen LCD panel, AC adapter Same as power adapter. , guidebook, ViewScreen calculator, calculator-to-calculator link, a poster and transparency sheets. An overhead projector is not included. ViewScreen panels are also available separately. Three separate versions are compatible with a range of Texas Instruments products.
Gets Whole Class Involved
How do you engage a roomful of students? Show them math in action using TI-Presenter, which can display a TI handheld's screen in real time on a television screen. The unit is a video interface for TI's graphing calculators Graphing Calculator may refer to:
TI Connectivity Kit
TI Connect link software is all new, designed as a universal tool for most TI handhelds. The cable and software package is how you connect your calculator to a PC or Mac, and thus the Internet, to update software and download applications. A simple, clean interface helps teachers and students to easily back up and restore data, as well as transfer screen shots, programs and files between their computers and TI handhelds.

High school standard
The TI-83 Plus is the best selling graphing calculator in the U.S. and Canada. Best suited for high school, the TI-83 Plus is easy-to-use in classes ranging from algebra through pre-calculus and biology to physics. It also has advanced statistics and financial features. Enhanced Flash technology provides flexibility and long-term value by allowing you to add software applications, upgrade the OS, and improve functionality. It can store up to 10 apps from among TI's offerings of a spreadsheet, a personal organizer, StudyCards viewer and maker, plus programs for graphing, geometry, science and math. The TI-83 Plus is approved for most state and national tests.

And it comes pre-loaded with nine Apps, including a PIM-style organizer, probability simulator, periodic table, CBL/CBR app, and CellSheet spreadsheet. TI GRAPH-LINK for Windows, for connecting the handheld to a PC, is also included. Of special note, the software development kit allows student to create and share their own applications, and students nationwide have developed freeware Software that is distributed without charge and which may be redistributed without charge by its users. However, ownership is retained by the developer who may change future releases from freeware to a paid product (feeware). See shareware, free software and public domain software. for the Silver Edition. Such applications cover topics such as astronomy, time-zone computations and fractions and decimals.
Suits Advanced Math
For high school AP students and in college, the Computer Algebra System A computer algebra system (CAS) is a software program that facilitates symbolic mathematics. The core functionality of a CAS is manipulation of mathematical expressions in symbolic form. is an important tool; but was usually only on computers. This handheld puts CAS at students' fingertips "Fingertips" is a 1963 number-one hit single recorded live by "Little" Stevie Wonder for Motown's Tamla label. Wonder's first hit single, "Fingertips" was the first live, non-studio recording to reach number-one on the Billboard Pop Singles chart in the United States. . The T1-89 graphing calculator, with built-in CAS, was made for students taking advanced math and engineering courses. Students can manipulate math expressions and functions symbolically or numerically, seeing results on a 100 x 160-pixel, high-contrast display. More than 500K of memory is standard, as are 2D graphing and analyses, 3D graphing with real-time rotations, linear algebra linear algebra

Upgradable for middle school
Designed for the middle grades, the TI-73 has a large 64 x 96-pixel screen to help students see patterns and analyze data. Geared just for middle grades classrooms, the unit's keyboard and functionality eliminate items that often confuse and intimidate this age group, yet has all the graphing capabilities they need. Students can easily view and edit text or numeric data Refers to quantities and money amounts used in calculations. Contrast with string or character data. , and plot data as pie charts, pictographs, bar charts, scatter plots, histograms and more.

Data logging (data) data logging - (data acquisition) Storing a series of measurements over time, usually from a sensor that converts a physical quantity such as temperature, pressure, relative humidity, light, resistance, current, power, speed, vibration into a voltage that is then converted out of the Box
CBL 2 System
Texas Instruments Students discover, first-hand, how math and science affect the world around them by developing hypotheses, doing experiments and forming conclusions. The CBL 2 electronic data-collection tool provides the easiest way yet for students to measure and analyze real-world data like temperature and humidity. Usable out of the box, teachers can set up experiments with one button via CBL 2 built-in DataMate software. A new calculator docking cradle allows single-handed use in the field. Vernier vernier (vûr`nēr), auxiliary scale, either straight or an arc of a circle, designed to slide along a fixed scale. Its unit divisions, usually smaller than those on the fixed scale, permit a far more precise reading. has more than 40 different sensors for the unit.
Science in Motion
Capture motion data with Calculator-Based Ranger. A versatile tool for grades 7-12 math and science teachers, CBR connects directly to TI graphing calculators to collect distance, velocity and acceleration data. Complete with built-in software, the unit comes ready to use with a graphing calculator--just point its pivoting sensor at the action and start sampling. Data can be viewed real time or stored for later analysis, and exported to TI graphing calculators with the push of a button. Automated plots include Distance-Time, Velocity-Time, and Acceleration-Time.
