Notes: The TI-30 series started with the TI-30, an ordinary scientific LED calculator. But Texas Instruments kept extending this line, turning it not into just a model number but a whole calculator series. Trying to make it the non-programmable scientific calculator for school use. In fact, the TI-30 is still sold today, although its modern variants are quite different from this original version.

So far I’ve found mention of the following types (probably incomplete):

The one on display here is quite worn out and scratched by its previous owner but still works fine, if you know which keys do what.

The calculator is a basic scientific calculator for school use. It has a slide on hard cover for protection (which didn't help this particular specimen). Its type designation is simply TI-30 but at the bottom right it says "SCIENTIFIC". Hence my type designation in this musem to be able to distinguish it from the TI-30 itself.
