Texas Instruments introduced with the TI-Collège the first calculator with keys (e.g. ANNUL), notations and even the menus in French to simplify the use by younger students. In 2006 Texas Instruments France nationalized with the TI-82 Stats.fr the first Graphing calculator.
Compared with its predeccessor TI-40 Collège II some disadvantages were corrected and we notice:
|The trigonometrical functions sin, cos and tan are in direct access|
|The [*10n] key to enter powers of 10 is added|
|[» a·10n] and [Norm] keys to convert to and from powers of 10 format|
pictured calculator was manufactured by Nam
Tai Electronics, Inc. in China for the European market.
Don't miss the TI-30X IIB, TI-30X IIS, TI-34 II, TI-36X II, and BA II PLUS.
Texas Instruments complemented both the TI-30X IIB and TI-30X IIS with the next generation scientific calculators TI-30XB MultiView resp. TI-30XS MultiView in June 2007. The successor of the TI-Collège labeled TI-Collège Plus hit the stores together with the TI-34 MultiView in February 2008. Don't miss the TI-83 Plus.fr.
