TI Nspire CX CAS: What to do?
« on: May 29, 2015, 10:49:30 am »
I haven't been on Omnimaga since last year so I'm pretty out of the loop in terms of development. I just bought a new TI Nspire CX CAS. I was wondering what I should do with it? Downgrade? Install Ndless? In terms of aims, I'm mainly looking to make the Nspire as useful as possible (possibly instead some programs, games, etc.). Anyway, any advice would be incredibly useful!

You'd need ndless for that first and if your calc is new and has OS 4.0 preinstalled, that's not possible right now.

Right. And is there any good guides on how to use the Nspire? Maybe on Youtube?

Finally, when using the CAS feature, is there any way to show step-by-step solutions? Like WolframAlpha?

It depends on what operating system your calc is running. If you have 3.9 or lower, you're good to go, but OS 4.0 is un-ndlessable right now. As for the CAS stepping, I don't think so :(

Right. Ok. Any good guides on how to use the calculator? I'm having a bit of trouble with graphing, especially. Tbh, this is my first graphical calculator so it's pretty different for me

Also, I've got a few notes on my PC (Student Software). How do you transfer these to the calculator? Thanks again for the help!
