Explore Book Buy On Amazon

You find two types of TI-Nspire computer software: TI-Nspire Student Software and TI-Nspire Teacher Software. The TI-Nspire Student Software now comes free with the purchase of a TI-Nspire Handheld. Of course, both can be purchased at instructional dealers or the TI online store.

The two types of software are extremely similar. When it comes to creating documents (called working in the Documents workspace), only one difference exists. TI-Nspire Teacher Software has an additional application called the Question application.

Using the Question application, teachers can create different types of questions (custom choice, open response, and so on) and embed the question in a .tns document.

The TI-Nspire Teacher Software was designed to be used in a classroom setting. Consequently, it does have a few more features available. For example, TI-Nspire Teacher Software can be used to send .tns documents to multiple users at one time and to save a .tns document in a lesson bundle (with a .pdf and/or a .doc document), and it has a Content workspace to preview and download files.
