  • This calculator is a good size for backpack. Easy to use.
  • It is simple to use and has many features. Good size!

Texas Instruments TI-Nspire CX Graphing Calculator
  • This is absolutely what i needed and for the price it is affordable. the right size and easy to use.
  • I bought it for my middle school child, probably a bit more than what she needs now but plan is for her to get comfortable with keys and functionality ahead of college entry exams.
  • I understand cutting back on weight a little as the original ti-nspire is a brick to hold, but it fits well in your hand and it feels like it will last me a lifetime.
  • Smaller, lighter, compact, but not unmanageable for my nimble fingers
  • Works fine. Used at PSAT. Just wish it was a little more compact in size.

What customers say about "Features"
Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus CE Graphing Calculator
  • This caclulator has the benefit of a white screen versus the grey screen. When plotting multiple functions, each function has a different color, helping you identify functions with ease.
  • This is a great calculator. There's definitely a bit of a learning curve but, once you get it down algebra is a piece of cake. Also, it helps that this was one the calculators that are authorized for use by WGU.
  • Additionally, it lasts for long amounts of time (days) on a single charge and she uses it several times through the day on a daily basis.
  • I purchased the Ti-84+ Ce Graphing Calculator for my son as a requirement for his Algebra II class. He's enjoying the calculator and we've downloaded several apps from the TI website, including a helpful Polynomial Root Solver app.
  • I bought it for my college Statistics class, and am new to this kind of calculator. But it has been easy to figure out, especially with the help of others. That's when I realize my screen is easier to see. Which makes a difference when you are taking tests.
Texas Instruments TI-Nspire CX Graphing Calculator
  • Works great but takes a while to get used to and familiar with all the applications. Half of it I don't use yet. Love the memory feature and it's capacity.
  • I had this products for a few months now and the I have charged the battery once and it lasted me a while month, while I was using 8t every day. Great product.
  • User friendly, great design, functionality and battery life.
  • This is what's required by the school ..seems to be easy to use and battery last a long time
  • Works great. No issues with software. Battery last a long time.
  • This is my second. Battery went out after a year on the first. Only bought a second one because this is the model my daughter has to have for school.
