Graphing Calculator Resources

  • For an introduction to the TI-84+  or TI-83+ calculator, work through the Graphing Calculator Workshop .  You may check your answers for the numerical calculations by viewing these solutions

    For further information (including detailed written instructions on solving equations and inequalities graphically), please read Using the Graphing Calculator (pdf).  After working through the exercises in the document, check your solutions (pdf).

    The following five videos (created by demonstrate how to use the graphing features of the TI-84+ and how to use the "store" function.  For the tutorials on graphing, the instructor always starts with a standard window. You can obtain a standard window by pushing the Zoom button, then choosing option 6. The graphing videos explain the functions of the row of buttons found immediately below the graphing screen on the TI-84+.
