Science with TI-Nspire™ Technology is a free download that contains 33 data-collection experiments in Earth/environmental science, biology, chemistry, and physics for use with TI-Nspire handhelds and computer software.

We have taken 33 of our most popular laboratory activities and modified them for use with TI-Nspire handhelds and computer software. Activities support data collection with the DataQuest App using the TI-Nspire Lab Cradle (TI-NSLABC) and EasyLink (EZ-LINK) sensor interfaces.

Since this book was published, Texas Instruments made changes to the DataQuest App. Because of this, some of the icon references used in the book are no longer used in the app. There are no plans to update this book.
