Specs Math Programming

1. Using the TI-Nspire CX

2. Programming the TI-Nspire CX

The TI-Nspire CX comes with the Lua and BASIC programming languages. BASIC is aimed mainly at math, lacking useful input and display output routines, while Lua is for more advanced programs and games. Using the 3rd party jailbreak [Ndless](, one can also program the TI-Nspire in C and C++, utilizing the full hardware. People have also ported popular scripting languages such as Python and JavaScript to the TI-Nspire.
