How to Graph Transformation on the TI-Nspire

Several types of functions have graphs that can be directly manipulated on the TI-Nspire screen. To accomplish this task, simply press [CTRL][CLICK to grab the graph and then use the Touchpad keys to perform [more…]

How to Work with Sliders on TI-Nspire Graphs

You can use the Slider feature on the TI-Nspire to explore a graph of y = abx., where a and b can take on any range of values. The function y = eax + b [more…]

How to Graph Inequalities on the TI-Nspire

With the Graphs application on the TI-Nspire, you can graph a single inequality or multiple inequalities. To graph a single inequality, follow these steps, and to graph multiple inequalities, repeat Steps [more…]

How to Graph Parametric Equations on the TI-Nspire

Press [MENU]→Graph Type→Parametric to switch to parametric graphing mode. Alternatively, move to the entry line and press [CTRL][MENU]→Parametric. Next, follow these steps: [more…]

How to Graph Sequences & Phase Plots on TI-Nspire

When graphing on the TI-Nspire, the initial condition (or term) is always graphed with a green point which can be grabbed and moved to investigate the behavior in terms of the initial condition or term [more…]

How to Graph Differential Equations on TI-Nspire

Graphing differential equations is new feature on TI-Nspire. You can set the initial condition(s), customize the slope field, and choose your solution method [more…]

3D Graphing on the TI-Nspire

Graphing in 3D on the TI-Nspire helps students to visualize what a function would look like in 3D (and you don’t need to wear uncomfortable glasses to see it). 3D Graphing allows you to enter an expression [more…]

How to Graph Piecewise Functions on the TI-Nspire

Press [MENU]→Graph Type→Function to switch to function graphing mode on the TI-Nspire. Alternatively, move to the entry line and press [CTRL][MENU]→Function. Two different piecewise function templates [more…]

How to Graph Derivatives on TI-Nspire

The study of calculus should include a focus on the four key mathematical representations: algebraic, geometric, numeric, and verbal. The TI-Nspire Graphs application stands ready to take care of the geometric [more…]

Points & Lines Menu in the TI-Nspire Geometry App

On the TI-Nspire, begin a new document and add a Geometry page (press [ON]→New Document→Add Geometry). The Line, Segment, Vector, and Ray tools are all drawn using nearly identical methods. Here are the [more…]

How to Use the TI-Nspire Measurement Tools

Press [MENU]→Measurement to access the TI-Nspire Measurement menu. On this menu, you will find the Length, Area, and Angle tools, which enable you to measure angles, hide the scale, and change the default [more…]

TI-Nspire Shapes Menu in the Geometry Application

Within the TI-Nspire Shapes menu, you find the Circle, Triangle, Rectangle, Polygon, and Regular Polygon tools. Here are the steps to use the Circle tool: [more…]

Dynamically Explore Constructions on the TI-Nspire

One of TI-Nspire’s most powerful features is its ability to grab and move objects, enabling you to observe changes happening dynamically in real time. This is especially true of constructions, including [more…]

Perform Calculations and Using the TI-Nspire Attach Feature

Calculations can be used to make sense of the measurements that were taken. The TI-Nspire Attach feature is a handy way to display the results of the calculations and measurements. You can use these tools [more…]

Measure Length and Customize Scale on the TI-Nspire

With TI-Nspire's Length Measurement tool, you can measure the perimeter of a polygon, the circumference of a circle, the length of a segment, or the distance between any two points. For this example, you [more…]

Use the Rotation Tool on the TI-Nspire Transformation Menu

The TI-Nspire Transformation menu provides five different transformations: Symmetry, Reflection, Translation, Rotation, and Dilation. The Rotation tool is a good choice for creating a triangle with specific [more…]

How to Label Objects on the TI-Nspire

The TI-Nspire allows you to add labels to any object. Use these steps to label the vertices of an equilateral triangle, A, B, and C: [more…]

How to Move and Resize Objects on the TI-Nspire

You can move or resize any object on the TI-Nspire. However, you face some constraints based on the type of drawing you have constructed. For example, consider an equilateral triangle. This object can [more…]

How to Select Multiple Objects on the TI-Nspire

You may want to select multiple objects within the TI-Nspire Geometry application for two reasons. First, multiple selected objects can be translated. Second, all selected objects can be deleted by pressing [more…]

How to Change an Object's Attributes on the TI-Nspire

Besides changing the attributes of a graph, you can also change the attributes of a geometry object on the IT-Nspire. Press [MENU]→Actions→Attributes to invoke the Attributes command. Then, move to the [more…]

Use the TI-Nspire Lock and Pin Features

The TI-Nspire Geometry application offers Lock and Pin features. If a point is pinned, it can’t be moved unless it is unpinned. Other geometric objects and text can also be pinned, which is a nice feature [more…]

How to Construct Geometric Objects on the TI-Nspire

Creating a geometric construction can provide a rich mathematical experience, especially when used with the dynamic click-and-drag feature of TI-Nspire. To access the Construction menu, press [more…]

How to Use the TI-Nspire Transformation Menu

The Transformation menu provides five different transformations: Symmetry, Reflection, Translation, Rotation, and Dilation. Here’s a brief description of what four of the transformation tools can do and [more…]

How to Animate Objects on the TI-Nspire

In the Geometry application on the TI-Nspire, you can animate a point (or multiple points) on a line, ray, axis, vector, graph, segment, or circle. Assume that you want to animate point [more…]

Differences between Analytic and Geometry Objects

You have many reasons for working strictly in the TI-Nspire Graphs application or the Geometry application. Sometimes, however, it’s to your advantage to work in an environment that contains the best of [more…]
