|For students in math and sciences, or for anyone new to
graphing calculators, Texas Instruments has created the TI-83 Plus--a powerful,
problem-solving tool with features for storing, graphing, and analyzing up to 10
functions. Plus, it displays graphs and evaluates tables on a split screen, allowing you
to trace the graph and scroll through table values simultaneously.
|The clear, readable display exhibits 12 characters and
8 lines, in 64 x 96 pixels on an LCD screen. The TI-83 Plus has a pragmatic key layout and
an easy-to-use graphing interface, with a simple programming language for creating
conversion programs. The TI-83 Plus stores and analyzes up to 10 matrices combined with
data storage in lists containing up to 999 elements per list. You can also solve equations
interactively for different variables.
With the TI-83 Plus,
you can view an equation, its graph, and the coordinates all at one time. Jump from point
to point by entering a number. Several useful plot types are available, including scatter,
box-and-whisker, XY-line, histogram, and normal probability plots. Advanced statistics and
regression analysis, graphical analysis, and data analysis are readily accessed, along
with features for calculus, engineering, financial, logarithm, trigonometry, and
hyperbolic functions--all crucial tools for advanced analysis.
With its clear display and fast processing, the TI-83 Plus
incorporates graphing tools for mathematics and science course work, including statistics
and finance. Incredibly useful for college boards--PSAT/NMSQT, SAT I, SAT II, Math, IC,
and IIC--the TI83 is essential equipment for advanced placement courses in chemistry,
physics, and calculus.
The addition of the optional TI Graph-link (software and cable)
allows you to connect the calculator to your computer, permitting the transfer of files
and data between machines. The TI-83 is powered by four AAA alkaline batteries and one
lithium battery for backup, with an automatic shutoff to save energy. It also comes with a
hard slide cover and is supported by a 1-year limited warranty.
