Texas Instrument’s new TI-Nspire CX Handheld calculator is not like most boring scientific calculators. This one features a 16-bit, 320 x 240 pixel color high-resolution display along with a new 3D graphing capability and software that helps students create color interactive lessons and lab reports. With this display students and teachers can see full-color images and animations.
MathSark is a lot more than just a calculator, it works as an electronic flash card system and educational toy. The device comes with quizzes that feature eight different skill levels in addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, and percentages. The idea is to get kids to learn math even if they don’t like math, by including quizzes in the form of video games with f;ashing lights and sounds. And kids can of course also use the MathShark as a regular calculator. MathShark retails for $40.38.
