Calculator (HS)

In line with curriculum changes within the Diploma Program, the Mathematics department at CIS decided to use TI-Nspire CX non-CAS calculators. Teachers will be using the TI-Nspire CX non-CAS calculators in their instructions.

Please note that the TI-Nspire CAS calculators are prohibited in the final DP examination.

When purchasing a new calculator please make sure that you buy the non-CAS TI-Nspire version 1.3 or higher, preferably the CX with a touchpad. The earlier versions of the TI-Nspire are prohibited in the IB exams.
