TI-84 Plus Graphing Calculator
The Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus is the new version of the TI-83 Plus and offers all of the same functions but with improved speed, screen resolution, and additional programs. The TI-84 Plus can be used for algebra, geometry, trigonometry, statistics, calculus, physics, and business/accounting math. The TI-84 Plus is the calculator reccommended by professors for most courses in those areas. The calculator graphs functions of one variable and stores lists, matrices, variables, and can be programmed to perform specific operations useful to the user.
*NOTE: There are six TI-84 Plus Calculators. THREE of them are for LIBRARY USE ONLY (available for two-hour checkout) and cannot be taken out of the building. The other THREE are for single-day checkout.
Each TI-84 Plus comes with four AA batteries. USB cables may be requested in order to connect the calculator to a PC. The computers in the Math Lab in Towers Hall have Texas Instruments software for this function.
They can be picked up from and returned to the Circulation desk. There are 6 calculators available on a first come, first serve basis.
TI-85 Graphing Calculator
The Texas Instruments TI-85 is a graphing calculator which can be used in Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Statistics, Calculus, Business/Accounting, and Physics courses. The calculator has on-keypad functions such as SOLVER (to solve equations of one variable), SIMULT (to solve equations of more than one variable where specific values are inserted for those variables), POLY (to solve polynomial equations of various degree), as well as menus for matrices, vectors, and complex numbers. The calculator graphs functions of one variable.
NOTE: This calculator is for LIBRARY USE ONLY and cannot be taken out of the building.
The TI-85 comes with four AAA batteries.
The loan period for the TI-85 is two hours and cannot be renewed. It can be picked up from and returned to the Circulation Desk. There is one TI-85 available on a first come, first serve basis.
