JUL10PER & JUL20PER codes may work as well if you haven't already used them

Does this have CAS?

No.

But the version with CAS is basically the same price right now (3rd party vendor, fulfilled by Amazon/Prime-eligible):

Unless the school mandate it, are any of these TI calculator is better than Microsoft Mathematic or Geogebra running on tablet?

Naive question, what is CAS?

Thanks MC. Got 1.
Kid is going to High School next year and this will come in handy.

Just to let everyone know... often these calculators aren't allowed for testing in schools. Too powerful and easy to "cheat" yer way through. I don't really agree it's cheating. Any good student should be able to make use of the tools available to them, but that's not the view educators takes. Engineering tests are often limited to calculators with nothing more than basic trig functions.

HP48 forever!

Nah, used it all day yesterday but wouldn't work on the one sold by Amazon either (check in the new other options for seller as Amazon).

Just a friendly echo . . . our daughter heads to high school this fall so we picked one of these up last month. We just received her "packet" and there was an extra sheet in there stating that we should be careful purchasing these 'cause they won't be allowed on some of the tests. They recommend the 83 or 84, or course, so we'll probably end up trading it in. One thing we haven't looked into yet, though, is that the NSpire comes with a "test mode" that locks out the features that aren't on the 83 or 84 and, subsequently, should be allowed for all the standard tests. (A little light blinks when it's locked out so the teacher can tell it's being used properly.) In that mode, it emulates the 84 so it should be accepted.

You can receive a TI-84 Plus Keypad by mail; request it from education.ti.com/84keypad at no additional cost.

It replaces the keypad that comes with the Nspire Touch as needed, especially for tests.

Clarification: The TI-84 Plus Keypad is only for the Nspire Touch (Not CAS).

Thanks OP. Got one.

Thank you both.

So it seems with TI's free keyboard I can purchase this one instead of TI-83 or TI-84? TIA.
