Texas Instruments TI-73 Explorer Graphing Calculator

Take a look at TI's next-generation handheld designed especially for grades 6-8. The TI-73 Explorer™ joins our popular line of handheld technology, providing a larger screen alternative for teachers who feel limited by the two-line display of other fraction and scientific models.

The TI-73 Explorer is completely compatible with existing TI-73 classroom accessories and related curricular materials for upper elementary through lower middle grades, from fractions through pre-algebra.

Enhance your students' learning experience with the new TI-73 Explorer, which serves as a bridge between the TI-15 Explorer™ and the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition.
