TI Calculator Help - Math Department

The content on this page was made possible by a sabbatical taken during the Spring 2005 semester by Ohlone College Mathematics professor Jeff O'Connell. Unless otherwise stated, instructions will work in the same TI (Texus Instrument) family, that is, instructions for TI-83/84 have been checked on the TI-83/83 plus/83 plus silver edition/84 plus/84 plus silver edition. You will need a PDF file reader for all instruction sheets. There is a link to Adobe's free PDF reader at the bottom of this page.

All comments, corrections, and additions are welcome - please contact Jeff O'Connell at joconnell@ohlone.edu.
