# TI-Nspire Top Tips

The **TI-Nspire **is a very powerful and multi-faceted calculator that is more aptly described as a 'handheld device' and can be likened to a small computer - albeit one specifically designed for doing and learning mathematics. The power and versatility of the TI-Nspire can make it seem a bit of a daunting process to become fluent and comfortable in its operation. To help make this learning process smoother we have composed a number of short videos (around one minute each) that demonstrate a specific 'tip' which can help anyone (novice or experienced user) develop their expertise with this wonderful handheld mathematical tool. The video demonstrations focus on practical information for the TI-Nspire CX that cover a range of features, settings and commands for the handheld device. All of the videos show the TI-Nspire CX device (non-CAS model) with OS 3.6 operating system installed.
