If you have a T1-84 Plus Graphing Calculator, you have a powerful, sophisticated tool for advanced math. In fact, it's so sophisticated that you may not know how to take advantage of many of its features and functions. That's a good problem to have, and TI-84 Plus Graphing Calculator For Dummies is the right solution! It takes the TI-84 Plus to the next power, showing you how to: Display numbers in normal, scientific, or engineering notations Perform basic calculations, deal with angles, and solve equations Create and investigate geometric figures Graph functions, inequalities, or transformations of functions Create stat plots and analyze statistical data Create probability experiments like tossing coins, rolling dice, and so on Save calculator files on your computer Add applications to your calculator so that it can do even more TI-84 Plus Graphing Calculator For Dummies was written by C.C. Edwards, author of TI-83 Plus Graphing Calculator For Dummies, who has a Ph.D. in mathematics and teaches on the undergraduate and graduate levels.
The book doesn't delve into high math, but it does use appropriate math examples to help you delve into: Using the Equation Solver Using GeoMaster and its menu bar to construct lines, segments, rays, vectors, circles, polygons, perpendicular and parallel lines, and more Creating a slide show of transformations of a graph Using the Inequality Graphing application to enter and graph inequalities and solve linear programming problems There's even a handy tear-out cheat sheet to remind you of important keystrokes and special menus, And since you'll quickly get comfortable with the built-in applications, there's a list of ten more you can download and install on your calculator so it can do even more! TI-84 Plus Graphing Calculator For Dummies is full of ways to increase the value of your TI-84 Plus exponentially.

About C. C. Edwards

C. C. Edwards has a Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, and is currently teaching mathematics on the undergraduate and graduate levels. She has been using technology in the classroom since before Texas Instruments came out with their first graphing calculator, and she frequently gives workshops at national and international conferences on using technology in the classroom. She has written forty activities for Texas Instrument's Explorations Web site, and she was an editor of Eightysomething, a newsletter formerly published by Texas Instruments. She is also the author of TI-83 Plus Graphing Calculator For Dummies. Just barely five feet tall, CC, as her friends call her, has three goals in life: to be six inches taller, to have naturally curly hair, and to be independently wealthy. As yet, she is nowhere close to meeting any of these goals. When she retires, she plans to become an old lady carpenter.
