Python snakes its way to the TI-84 Plus CE Python Graphing Calculator by Texas Instruments runs CircuitPython! @TICalculators

Update 5/21/2021 – IT IS!!

It looks like the TI-84 Plus CE Python Graphing Calculator by Texas Instruments runs CircuitPython! From the PDF

Python App for the TI-84 Plus CE-T Python Edition

TI-Python is based on CircuitPython, a variant of Python 3 for teaching coding. It was developed by Adafruit and adapted for use by TI.
The interpreter of your Python program is executed within this TI-Python environment, separate and different from the CE OS calculations. Calculations may also vary from other versions of Python due to number type storage in the Python version.

The Python App offers the following to support your Python programming on your calculator.

Here’s where it gets a little confusing, THIS LINK goes to the USA site and it says you can sign up for alerts (but not purchase yet?) and THIS LINK goes to the UK site and it’s available for purchase.

We will tweet to TI and see if they can help out what’s what and when.


HOWEVER, this teacher (in the USA?) seems to have one!

There is some discussion on this new calc on TI-Planet and the MicroPython forums, we’ll try to reach out to TI to confirm where to get it and when, and also if it’s really running CircuitPython.

There are a bunch of calculators that run some form of Python! These calcs are part of most/all students courses around the world, including the USA. This is happening!

Update: 5/21/2021 – appears to be!

aaaand here’s a chat from TI.

    I communicated with TI and there is a VERY small library of modules available for this (all TI specific as best as I can tell).

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
