Following up his popular "Introduction to the TI-Nspire," teacher and author Lucas Allen continues his TI-Nspire (TM) Tutorials series with a look at the TI-Nspire CAS. The CAS, or computer algebra system, version of the TI-Nspire is popular at the high school and college level alike for its ability to manipulate not just numbers, but variables. For all the amazing growth that the TI-Nspire platform has shown over the last few years, there still remains a lack of quality resources available for the CAS version of the TI-Nspire. This book is designed to address the needs of students and teachers in search of help with their TI-Nspire CAS.In this second volume of the series, careful attention is given to the CAS specific features of the TI-Nspire CAS. Basic features such as expanding, factoring, and solving simple equations are covered as well as more advanced techniques such as solving complex equations, derivatives, integrals, and differential equations. Any student or teacher working with mathematics from algebra through calculus can benefit from the techniques taught in this book.Everything in the book is up to date with the latest version of the TI-Nspire CAS operating system, version 3.2. If you don't have the latest version of the OS on your TI-Nspire CAS, the book has all of the information you'll need on how to update your calculator for free. Although the button sequences in the tutorials are designed with the TI-Nspire CX CAS and TI-Nspire CAS Touchpad in mind, even the original TI-Nspire Clickpad is capable of everything covered in the book by making slight modifications to the button sequences.Lucas Allen has become an authority on the use of the TI-Nspire CAS since its release, as he was an early adopter of the device for use with the math team he coaches in a public school in downstate Illinois. This past spring, his team captured the 2012 Illinois math team state championship, beating out many of Chicago's elite private schools. In this book, you will learn many of the exact same strategies his team uses on the TI-Nspire CAS.For over 10 years, Allen has taught mathematics at the high school level with students of every imaginable achievement level. He has worked with the TI-Nspire for almost half of that time. He blogs about graphing calculators and other math education technologies at Tech Powered Math.
