Hello from your NY State Texas Instruments consultants,

After meeting with New York State Education Department in May of 2010 to share the 2.0 Operating System, Texas Instruments made some changes to the Press-to-Test features for exam purposes.

To use the TI-Nspire for a New York State Mathematics Regents exam, students must have a new OS.

TI created two options for TI-Nspire users. Both have the new Press-to-Test features and are acceptable for NYS.

Option 1

2.1.1.38 is for NYS only. There is NO difference between 2.1.0.63 (what most are currently using) other than the Press-to-Test features.

Perfect for those who do not want to change what they have been using all year.

This OS will not be found on the TI website. It can be downloaded from this link:
http://education.ti.com/html/nspire/i4-release.html

Option 2

3.01 is the new Operating System being released World wide on the TI website on April 6th.

This OS will have 3D Graphing, a new Science Application, enhanced Mode Setting features, and the ability to import images to the background on your TI-Nspires.

If you feel comfortable with the update to 3.01 then by all means go ahead and update.


Most schools are updating to 2.1.1.38 till after the Regents week and then this Summer updating to the 3.01 OS for next year.

Please feel free to contact either myself dmorse@ti.com or Terri Viana tviana@ti.com with questions.
