Resources for Learning and Teaching Remotely

This guide lists a few of the electronic resources that are now available to students and faculty to help with distance learning and teaching for the Spring semester

Calculators

Graphing Calculator Access

While remote learning is in effect, we strongly recommend you use free programs to emulate all the functions of our physical graphing calculators on your computer or mobile device. 

Students can longer sign up for a free trial of Texas Instruments emulation software, but you may continue Texas Instruments COVID-19 Support page. Currently emulation software for Chromebook is available in a test beta release until August 15th. Please email reference@csi.cuny.edu and you can get a link to a private, free app on the Chrome App Store. 

For calculators that are not "TI" branded, but which are freely available and can be used without a 90 day limit, several options are available. NumWorks offers an Open Source calculator (Creative Commons license) with an emulator that can be used on computers or with a free app on mobile devices. Try the online simulator, with no download needed. Demos offers a free calculators for both online and offline mobile use with apps. They also tout their calculator as meeting accessibility guidelines. Try their graphing function. Consider meta-calculator for free graphing that is well formatted for screen sharing.
