The TI-Nspire graphing calculator from Texas Instruments is a smart investment that a teen can use for up to nine years in 19 high school and college-level classes that teach advanced math, from algebra through calculus, AP math and science, statistics, trigonometry and even engineering math. TI-Nspire graphing calculators are backed by research showing that graphing calculators can help improve students’ math skills, and they’re also allowed on the SAT**, ACT, AP**, IB® and a growing number of statewide math exams.
