I wasn't sure where to post this, as it's just a general question rather than anything actually math related..(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm starting pre-calc this summer, excellerated, and going into calc 1 at the second half of the summer. This is to get me ready for starting my Physics major in the fall.

I'm a transfer student, who has been very interested in physics for a while now, but only recently got up the guts to switch schools and majors to follow my passion.

ANYWAYS..(through all of that, this is going to sound like a stupid question BUT)

I'm at the stage of buying a calculator. I know for calculus I'll need a graphing calculator such at the TI-89 but now they have these TI-Nspire ones as well, with and without CAS

I have no idea what to buy, and I want to buy something that would be good for all my college years if possible.. basically I would rather over buy right now, so I have something that can last me, rather than buy something just for beginning calc now, and have to buy another one when I get to higher math and physics.

and I'm not sure what the consensus is on CAS or non CAS..

any info would be great, thanks fellas
