RE: Big Calculator: How Texas Instruments Monopolized Math Class
This article seems a bit biased towards TI company.
Quote:"Texas Instruments graphing calculators used by high school students 10 or 20 years ago are essentially the same ones students use today. Bulky and black, with large, colorful push buttons and a low- resolution screen, TI graphing calculators resemble top-of-the-line design from the 1990s and are functionally the same as when Texas Instruments first launched the TI-84 Plus in 2004."
There is nothing wrong with the fact that a high-quality and successful calculator is produced unchanged for many years. It is worth noting that the TI-83plus has long used an updated hardware compared to the early series and its software is well debugged and stable.
The author of this article claims that students and teachers at the college are being coerced into using TI. In my opinion, this one easy to use TI is not the worst option for the initial stage of training and standardization of educational process.
