Data Collection with TI Technology

TI-Nspire Technology

Vernier and Texas Instruments have teamed up to provide a full-featured, data-collection solution for TI-Nspire technology. It starts with the Vernier DataQuest Application, a built-in app found in TI-Nspire handhelds and computer software. Use the handhelds with the TI-Nspire Lab Cradle and Vernier sensors to bring real-world data to your science and math classroom.

What You Will Need for Data Collection with TI-Nspire Technology

  1. Data-collection software for TI-Nspire technology

    TI-Nspire technology running software version 3.0 or newer includes the data-collection and analysis software DataQuest.

     
  2. Add a Vernier EasyLink

    Vernier EasyLink® is a low-cost, single-channel interface to get you started with data collection using TI-Nspire technology. The TI-Nspire Lab Cradle is a multi-channel interface for experiments that require more than one sensor, faster sampling rates, or digital sensors not supported with EasyLink.

     
  3. Choose the sensors for experiments you’ll teach

    Choose compatible sensors to collect data with your EasyLink.

Data Collection with TI-83 Plus and TI-84 Plus Graphing Calculators

Bring real-world data to your science and math classroom with TI-83/84 Plus graphing calculators and Vernier sensors.

What You Will Need for Data Collection with TI-83/84 Plus graphing calculators

  1. EasyData app for graphing calculators

    The Vernier EasyData® application is an easy-to-use calculator program for the TI-83/84 Plus family of graphing calculators. EasyData comes preloaded on new calculators.

     
     
  2. Choose the interface that best fits your needs

    The Vernier EasyLink® is the recommended, low-cost, single channel interface to get you started with data collection on TI-83/84 Plus graphing calculators. The Texas Instruments CBL 2 offers multiple sensor channels and higher sampling rate.

     

    COMPATIBILITY NOTES

    • EasyLink cannot be used with a TI-83 Plus.
    • CBL 2 cannot be used with a TI-84 Plus CE.
     
     
  3. Choose the sensors for experiments you’ll teach

    Choose compatible sensors to collect data with your TI-83/84 Plus calculator and sensor interface. See compatible sensors for Vernier EasyLink or CBL 2.

  4. Add Vernier lab books to enhance your curriculum

    Popular Vernier lab books include customizable student instructions for data collection using EasyData software on a CD. Every book includes a site license that allows you to duplicate the experiments for your entire class. See all lab books »

Data Collection with Legacy TI Graphing Calculators

Bring real-world data to your science and math classroom with TI-73, TI-89, TI-92, or TI Voyage 200 graphing calculators.

What You Will Need for Data Collection with Legacy TI Graphing Calculators

  1. DataMate software for TI graphing calculators

    Our DataMate program is a general-purpose program that supports the use of most of our sensors. It comes already loaded on LabPro and CBL 2 interfaces. DataMate software is transferred from the LabPro or CBL 2 to your calculator.

     
  2. Choose the interface that best fits your needs

    The Texas Instruments CBL 2 is the recommended interface to use with legacy TI graphing calculators.
