Texas Instruments has introduced a slim, lightweight design, six times the memory and a bold new line-up of colors: TI‑84 Plus CE Graphing Calculator. The TI-84 Plus CE is now 30 percent thinner and 30 percent lighter than the TI-84 Plus, and students can express their own personal style by choosing their TI-84 Plus CE from a variety of colors, such as red, hot pink and blue. We were able to get our hands on the color Plum Pi and it is a gorgeous color in person.
TI-84 Plus CE has six times more memory and a new rechargeable battery will keep the surprisingly sleek graphing calculator crunching numbers for at least a month on one charge! A purchase in middle school will last students through high school, college and into career.
Teachers will appreciate that the key placement, navigation and menus are the same as earlier TI-84 Plus models so they can continue to use their current classroom activities. Parents will appreciate that a one-time purchase of a TI-84 Plus CE in middle school will take students through all of the math courses they need to take in high school, college and beyond– including algebra, geometry, calculus and statistics.
The TI-84 Plus CE graphing calculator is permitted on high-stakes exams, including the PSAT/NMSQT, SAT and ACT® college entrance exam as well as Advanced Placement exams that allow or require a graphing calculator.
