I compared two cables and noticed that they are identical. One insulating part on the TI cable is longer than the corresponding part on the Casio cable. But no matter, let us assume that the calculators share the same 2.5 mm connection.
You can verify the hardware compatibility as follows
- Use the Casio I/O cable to connect two TI calculators. The Casio cable wakes up the TI84PLus
- Use the TI I/O cable to connect to Casio calculators. The TI cable wakes up the Casio FX9550GII but not the CFX-9750GPlus nor the Graph 35. But that may not mean too much.
- Create a Matrix ( a 3X3 ) on one TI8xPLUS and transfer it to another TI8xPLUS using the Casio Cable.
- Create a small (3x3) matrix on one Casio C/FX-9750G/PLUS and transfer it to another C/FX-9750G/Plus.
- If you have been successful in any of the above you may try to transfer an object from a TI to a casio or from a Casio to a TI and the cable that worked above.
My feeling is that you cannot. I tried it
When I tried to transfer from a TI to a Casio, the Casio kept displaying RECEIVING , AC to cancel. The TI returned an Xmit
When I tried to transfer from a Casio to TI, the Casio quickly returned a Transmit Error, while the TI kept waiting for a transmission.
There may be other issues of memory organization
, naming conventions, systems commands and program commands so on.
For each problem you want to have your students solve try to supply the procedures for both types of calculators. This, in my opinion, is the reasonable way to go. A benefit to you is that you learn the expert use of both types of calculators.
If you care to specify what kind of programs you intend to transfer from one to the other, one may be able to point you to some resources available
on the web.
