The TI-Nspire CX CAS is a wonderful tool for drawing graphs, shapes, doing routine and more complex calculations, including algebra. It has excel-like spreadsheets too, and is great for rapid investigations and modelling. Students can also store documents which can be accessed later for revision. 
 
The TI-Nspire CX CAS can be connected to a home PC which allows file transfer and printing. If you buy a new TI-Nspire you receive a product key to connect to a PC; if you find a used model you will need the serial number.  Please ensure you obtain a TI-Nspire CX CAS (double check it is the CX CAS model).
