'Big Calculator: How Texas Instruments Monopolized Math Class'

"These $100 calculators have been required in classrooms for more than twenty years, as students and teachers still struggle to afford them"


How fun would it be to start a competitor to Texas Instruments and the TI calculators?

@schlink Desmos is awesome!

As I've said in the past TI should have pitched the calculators as STEM tools a bit more because their programming capabilities were beyond anything else offered to students back in the ’90s.
