TI-Nspire CX calculator: ACT approved?

Hey friends, I'm gearing up for the ACT and I was wondering if the TI-Nspire CX calculator is allowed? I'd hate to arrive on test day and find out I can't use it!

Hey there! Good on you for double-checking allowed calculators before the big day. The good news is that the TI-Nspire CX is indeed allowed on the ACT! The ACT has some specific guidelines for calculator use, and the TI-Nspire CX falls within those guidelines. That means you'll be able to use it with confidence during the Math portion of the test.

However, do note that the TI-Nspire CX CAS version (with a built-in Computer Algebra System) is not allowed. To avoid any confusion, make sure your calculator is the regular TI-Nspire CX and not the CAS version.

Best of luck on your ACT, and make sure to familiarize yourself with your calculator and its various functions to maximize your test-taking efficiency!
