Conventions In the body of this guidebook, TI-84 Plus refers to the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition, but all of the instructions, examples, and functions in this guidebook also work for the TI-84 Plus. The two graphing calculators differ only in available RAM memory, interchangeable faceplates, and Flash application ROM memory. Sometimes, as in Chapter 19, the full name TI-84 Plus Silver Edition is used to distinguish it from the TI-84 Plus. Screen shots were taken using OS version 2.53MP and higher in either MathPrintв„ў or Classic mode. All features are available in both modes; however, screens make look slightly different depending on the mode setting. Many examples highlight features that are not available in previous OS versions. If your calculator does not have the latest OS, features may not be available and your screens may look different. You can download the latest OS from education.ti.com. A new MODE menu item, STAT WIZARDS is available with OS version 2.55MP for syntax entry help for commands and functions in the STAT CALC menu, DISTR DISTR menu, DISTR DRAW menu and the seq( function (sequence) in the LIST OPS menu. When selecting a supported statistics command, regression or distribution with the STAT WIZARDS setting ON: (the default setting) a syntax help (wizard) screen is displayed. The wizard allows the entry of required and optional arguments. The function or command will paste with the entered arguments to the Home Screen history or in most other locations where the cursor is available for input. If a command or function is accessed from N the command or function will paste without wizard support. Run the Catalog Help application (Е’) for more syntax help when needed. APPS TI-84 Plus Keyboard Generally, the keyboard is divided into these zones: graphing keys, editing keys, advanced function keys, and scientific calculator keys. Keyboard Zones Graphing вЂ” Graphing keys access the interactive graphing features. The third function of these keys (t ^-a) displays the shortcut menus, which include templates for fractions, n/d, quick matrix entry, and some of the functions found on the MATH and VARS menus. Editing вЂ” Editing keys allow you to edit expressions and values. Advanced вЂ” Advanced function keys display menus that access the advanced functions. Scientific вЂ” Scientific calculator keys access the capabilities of a standard scientific calculator. Chapter 1: Operating the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition 1 TI-84 Plus Silver Edition Graphing Keys Editing Keys Advanced Function Keys Scientific Calculator Keys Using the Color.Coded Keyboard The keys on the TI-84 Plus are color-coded to help you easily locate the key you need. The light colored keys are the number keys. The keys along the right side of the keyboard are the common math functions. The keys across the top set up and display graphs. The Е’ key provides access to applications such as the Inequality Graphing, Transformation Graphing, Conic Graphing, Polynomial Root Finder and Simultaneous Equation Solver, and Catalog Help. The primary function of each key is printed on the keys. For example, when you press п‚Ќ, the MATH menu is displayed. Using the y and Ж’ Keys The secondary function of each key is printed above the key. When you press the y key, the character, abbreviation, or word printed above the other keys becomes active for the next keystroke. For example, when you press y and then п‚Ќ, the TEST menu is displayed. This guidebook describes this keystroke combination as y :. Many keys also have a third function. These functions are printed above the keys in the same color as the Ж’ key. The third functions enter alphabetic characters and special symbols as well as access SOLVE and shortcut menus. For example, when you press Ж’ and then п‚Ќ, the letter A is entered. This guidebook describes this keystroke combination as Ж’ [A]. Chapter 1: Operating the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition 2 If you want to enter several alphabetic characters in a row, you can press y 7 to lock the alpha key in the On position and avoid having to press Ж’ multiple times. Press Ж’ a second time to unlock it. Note: The flashing cursor changes to Г� when you press Ж’, even if you are accessing a function or a menu. Ж’^-a y Accesses the second function printed above each key. Access shortcut menus for functionality including templates for fractions, n/d, and other functions. Ж’ Accesses the third function printed above each key. Turning On and Turning Off the TI-84 Plus Turning On the Graphing Calculator To turn on the TI-84 Plus, press Г‰. An information screen displays reminding you that you can press t ^ - a to display the shortcut menus. This message also displays when you reset RAM. f To continue but not see this information screen again, press 1. f To continue and see this information screen again the next time you turn on the TI-84 Plus, press 2. вЂў If you previously had turned off the graphing calculator by pressing y M, the TI-84 Plus displays the home screen as it was when you last used it and clears any error. (The information screen displays first, unless you chose not to see it again.) If the home screen is blank, press } to scroll through the history of previous calculations. вЂў If Automatic Power Downв„ў (APDв„ў) had previously turned off the graphing calculator, the TI-84 Plus will return exactly as you left it, including the display, cursor, and any error. Chapter 1: Operating the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition 3 вЂў If the TI-84 Plus is turned off and connected to another graphing calculator or personal computer, any communication activity will вЂњwake upвЂќ the TI-84 Plus. To prolong the life of the batteries, APDв„ў turns off the TI-84 Plus automatically after about five minutes without any activity. Turning Off the Graphing Calculator To turn off the TI-84 Plus manually, press y M. вЂў All settings and memory contents are retained by the Constant Memoryв„ў function. вЂў Any error condition is cleared. Batteries The TI-84 Plus uses five batteries: four AAA alkaline batteries and one button cell backup battery. The backup battery provides auxiliary power to retain memory while you replace the AAA batteries. To replace batteries without losing any information stored in memory, follow the steps in Appendix C. Setting the Display Contrast Adjusting the Display Contrast You can adjust the display contrast to suit your viewing angle and lighting conditions. As you change the contrast setting, a number from 0 (lightest) to 9 (darkest) in the top-right corner indicates the current level. You may not be able to see the number if contrast is too light or too dark. Note: The TI-84 Plus has 40 contrast settings, so each number 0 through 9 represents four settings. The TI-84 Plus retains the contrast setting in memory when it is turned off. To adjust the contrast, follow these steps. f Press y } to darken the screen one level at a time. f Press y вЂ to lighten the screen one level at a time. Note: If you adjust the contrast setting to 0, the display may become completely blank. To restore the screen, press y } until the display reappears. When to Replace Batteries When the batteries are low, a low-battery message is displayed when you turn on the graphing calculator. To replace the batteries without losing any information in memory, follow the steps in Appendix C. Chapter 1: Operating the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition 4 Generally, the graphing calculator will continue to operate for one or two weeks after the lowbattery message is first displayed. After this period, the TI-84 Plus will turn off automatically and the unit will not operate. Batteries must be replaced. All memory should be retained. Note: вЂў The operating period following the first low-battery message could be longer than two weeks if you use the graphing calculator infrequently. вЂў Always replace batteries before attempting to install a new operating system. The Display Types of Displays The TI-84 Plus displays both text and graphs. Chapter 3 describes graphs. Chapter 9 describes how the TI-84 Plus can display a horizontally or vertically split screen to show graphs and text simultaneously. Home Screen The home screen is the primary screen of the TI-84 Plus. On this screen, enter instructions to execute and expressions to evaluate. The answers are displayed on the same screen. Most calculations are stored in the history on the home screen. You can press } and вЂ to scroll through the history of entries on the home screen and you can paste the entries or answers to the current entry line. Displaying Entries and Answers вЂў When text is displayed, the TI-84 Plus screen can display a maximum of 8 lines with a maximum of 16 characters per line in Classic mode. In MathPrintв„ў mode, fewer lines and fewer characters per line may be displayed. вЂў If all lines of the display are full, text scrolls off the top of the display. - To view previous entries and answers, press }. To copy a previous entry or answer and paste it to the current entry line, move the cursor to the entry or answer you want to copy and press ГЌ. Note: List and matrix outputs cannot be copied. If you try to copy and paste a list or matrix output, the cursor returns to the input line. вЂў If an expression on the home screen, the Y= editor (Chapter 3), or the program editor (Chapter 16) is longer than one line, it wraps to the beginning of the next line in Classic mode. In MathPrintв„ў mode, an expression on the home screen or Y= editor that is longer than one line scrolls off the screen to the right. An arrow on the right side of the screen indicates that you can scroll right to see more of the expression. In numeric editors such as the window screen (Chapter 3), a long expression scrolls to the right and left in both Classic and MathPrintв„ў modes. Press y ~ to move the cursor to the end of the line. Press y | to move the cursor to the beginning of the line. Chapter 1: Operating the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition 5 When an entry is executed on the home screen, the answer is displayed on the right side of the next line. Entry Answer The mode settings control the way the TI-84 Plus interprets expressions and displays answers. If an answer, such as a list or matrix, is too long to display entirely on one line, an arrow (MathPrintв„ў) or an ellipsis (Classic) is displayed to the right or left. Press ~ and | to display the answer. Classic MathPrintв„ў Entry Answer Entry Answer Entry Entry Answer Answer Using Shortcut Menus t^ t_ t` ta Opens FRAC menu. Opens FUNC menu. Opens MTRX menu. Opens YVAR menu. Shortcut menus allow quick access to the following: Chapter 1: Operating the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition 6 вЂў Templates to enter fractions and selected functions from the MATH MATH and MATH NUM menus as you would see them in a textbook. Functions include absolute value, summation, numeric differentiation, numeric integration, and log base n. вЂў Matrix entry. вЂў Names of function variables from the VARS Y-VARS menu. Initially, the menus are hidden. To open a menu, press t plus the F-key that corresponds to the menu, that is, ^ for FRAC, _ for FUNC, ` for MTRX, or a for YVAR. To select a menu item, either press the number corresponding to the item, or use the arrow keys to move the cursor to the appropriate line and then press ГЌ. All shortcut menu items except matrix templates can also be selected using standard menus. For example, you can choose the summation template from three places: FUNC shortcut menu MATH MATH menu Catalog The shortcut menus are available to use where input is allowed. If the calculator is in Classic mode, or if a screen is displayed that does not support MathPrintв„ў display, entries will be displayed in Classic display. The MTRX menu is only available in MathPrintв„ў mode on the home screen and in the Y= editor. Note: Shortcut menus may not be available if t plus F-key combinations are used by an application that is running, such as Inequality Graphing or Transformation Graphing. Returning to the Home Screen To return to the home screen from any other screen, press y 5. Chapter 1: Operating the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition 7 Busy Indicator When the TI-84 Plus is calculating or graphing, a vertical moving line is displayed as a busy indicator in the top-right corner of the screen. When you pause a graph or a program, the busy indicator becomes a vertical moving dotted line. Display Cursors In most cases, the appearance of the cursor indicates what will happen when you press the next key or select the next menu item to be pasted as a character. Cursor Appearance Effect of Next Keystroke Entry Solid rectangle $ A character is entered at the cursor; any existing character is overwritten Insert Underline __ A character is inserted in front of the cursor location Reverse arrow A 2nd character is entered or a 2nd operation is executed Reverse A An alpha character is entered, SOLVE is executed, or shortcut menus are displayed. Second Alpha Full MathPrintв„ў Гћ Г� Checkerboard rectangle No entry; the maximum characters are entered at a prompt or memory is full # Right arrow The cursor moves to either the next part of the template or out of the template.

An expression is a group of numbers, variables, functions and their arguments, or a combination of these elements. An expression evaluates to a single answer. On the TI-84 Plus, you enter an expression in the same order as you would write it on paper. For example, pR2 is an expression. You can use an expression on the home screen to calculate an answer. In most places where a value is required, you can use an expression to enter a value. Chapter 1: Operating the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition 11 Entering an Expression To create an expression, you enter numbers, variables, and functions using the keyboard and menus. An expression is completed when you press ГЌ, regardless of the cursor location. The entire expression is evaluated according to Equation Operating System (EOSв„ў) rules, and the answer is displayed according to the mode setting for Answer. Most TI-84 Plus functions and operations are symbols comprising several characters. You must enter the symbol from the keyboard or a menu; do not spell it out. For example, to calculate the log of 45, you must press В« 45. Do not enter the letters L, O, and G. If you enter LOG, the TI-84 Plus interprets the entry as implied multiplication of the variables L, O, and G. Calculate 3.76 P (L7.9 + вЂЎ5) + 2 log 45. 3 Г‹ 76 ВҐ ВЈ ГЊ 7 Г‹ 9 Гѓ y C 5 В¤ В¤ Гѓ 2 В« 45 В¤ ГЌ MathPrintв„ў Classic Multiple Entries on a Line To enter two or more expressions or instructions on a line, separate them with colons (Ж’ [:]). All instructions are stored together in last entry (ENTRY). Entering a Number in Scientific Notation 1. Enter the part of the number that precedes the exponent. This value can be an expression. 2. Press y D. Гў is pasted to the cursor location. 3. Enter the exponent, which can be one or two digits. Note: If the exponent is negative, press ГЊ, and then enter the exponent. When you enter a number in scientific notation, the TI-84 Plus does not automatically display answers in scientific or engineering notation. The mode settings and the size of the number determine the display format. Functions A function returns a value. For example, Г·, L, +, вЂЎ, and log( are the functions in the example on the previous page. In general, the first letter of each function is lowercase on the TI-84 Plus. Most functions take at least one argument, as indicated by an open parenthesis following the name. For example, sin( requires one argument, sin(value). Chapter 1: Operating the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition 12 Note: The Catalog Help App contains syntax information for most of the functions in the catalog. Instructions An instruction initiates an action. For example, ClrDraw is an instruction that clears any drawn elements from a graph. Instructions cannot be used in expressions. In general, the first letter of each instruction name is uppercase. Some instructions take more than one argument, as indicated by an open parenthesis at the end of the name. For example, Circle( requires three arguments, Circle(X,Y,radius). Interrupting a Calculation To interrupt a calculation or graph in progress, which is indicated by the busy indicator, press Г‰. When you interrupt a calculation, a menu is displayed. вЂў To return to the home screen, select 1:Quit. вЂў To go to the location of the interruption, select 2:Goto. When you interrupt a graph, a partial graph is displayed. вЂў To return to the home screen, press вЂ� or any non-graphing key. вЂў To restart graphing, press a graphing key or select a graphing instruction.

Press ~ or | to move the cursor to the setting you want. 3. Press ГЌ. Setting a Mode from a Program You can set a mode from a program by entering the name of the mode as an instruction; for example, Func or Float. From a blank program command line, select the mode setting from the mode screen; the instruction is pasted to the cursor location. Normal, Sci, Eng Notation modes only affect the way an answer is displayed on the home screen. Numeric answers can be displayed with up to 10 digits and a two-digit exponent and as fractions. You can enter a number in any format. Normal notation mode is the usual way we express numbers, with digits to the left and right of the decimal, as in 12345.67. Chapter 1: Operating the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition 15 Sci (scientific) notation mode expresses numbers in two parts. The significant digits display with one digit to the left of the decimal. The appropriate power of 10 displays to the right of ГҐ, as in 1.234567Гў4. Eng (engineering) notation mode is similar to scientific notation. However, the number can have one, two, or three digits before the decimal; and the power-of-10 exponent is a multiple of three, as in 12.34567Гў3. Note: If you select Normal notation, but the answer cannot display in 10 digits (or the absolute value is less than .001), the TI-84 Plus expresses the answer in scientific notation. Float, 0123456789 Float (floating) decimal mode displays up to 10 digits, plus the sign and decimal. 0123456789 (fixed) decimal mode specifies the number of digits (0 through 9) to display to the right of the decimal for decimal answers. The decimal setting applies to Normal, Sci, and Eng notation modes. The decimal setting applies to these numbers, with respect to the Answer mode setting: вЂў An answer displayed on the home screen вЂў Coordinates on a graph (Chapters 3, 4, 5, and 6) вЂў The Tangent( DRAW instruction equation of the line, x, and dy/dx values (Chapter 8) вЂў Results of CALCULATE operations (Chapters 3, 4, 5, and 6) вЂў The regression equation stored after the execution of a regression model (Chapter 12) Radian, Degree Angle modes control how the TI-84 Plus interprets angle values in trigonometric functions and polar/rectangular conversions. Radian mode interprets angle values as radians. Answers display in radians. Degree mode interprets angle values as degrees. Answers display in degrees. Func, Par, Pol, Seq Graphing modes define the graphing parameters. Chapters 3, 4, 5, and 6 describe these modes in detail. Func (function) graphing mode plots functions, where Y is a function of X (Chapter 3). Par (parametric) graphing mode plots relations, where X and Y are functions of T (Chapter 4). Pol (polar) graphing mode plots functions, where r is a function of q (Chapter 5). Chapter 1: Operating the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition 16 Seq (sequence) graphing mode plots sequences (Chapter 6). Connected, Dot Connected plotting mode draws a line connecting each point calculated for the selected functions. Dot plotting mode plots only the calculated points of the selected functions. Sequential, Simul Sequential graphing-order mode evaluates and plots one function completely before the next function is evaluated and plotted. Simul (simultaneous) graphing-order mode evaluates and plots all selected functions for a single value of X and then evaluates and plots them for the next value of X. Note: Regardless of which graphing mode is selected, the TI-84 Plus will sequentially graph all stat plots before it graphs any functions. Real, a+bi, re^qi Real mode does not display complex results unless complex numbers are entered as input. Two complex modes display complex results. вЂў a+bi (rectangular complex mode) displays complex numbers in the form a+bi. вЂў re^qi (polar complex mode) displays complex numbers in the form re^qi. Note: When you use the n/d template, both n and d must be real numbers. For example, you can enter (the answer is displayed as a decimal value) but if you enter , a data type error displays. To perform division with a complex number in the numerator or denominator, use regular division instead of the n/d template. Full, Horiz, G-T Full screen mode uses the entire screen to display a graph or edit screen. Each split-screen mode displays two screens simultaneously. Chapter 1: Operating the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition 17 вЂў Horiz (horizontal) mode displays the current graph on the top half of the screen; it displays the home screen or an editor on the bottom half (Chapter 9). вЂў G-T (graph-table) mode displays the current graph on the left half of the screen; it displays the table screen on the right half (Chapter 9). MathPrintв„ў, Classic MathPrintв„ў mode displays most inputs and outputs the way they are shown in textbooks, such as 2 1 3 --- + --- and в€« x 2 dx . 2 4 1 Classic mode displays expressions and answers as if written on one line, such as 1/2 + 3/4. Note: If you switch between these modes, most entries will be preserved; however matrix calculations will not be preserved. n/d, Un/d n/d displays results as a simple fraction. Fractions may contain a maximum of six digits in the numerator; the value of the denominator may not exceed 9999. Un/d displays results as a mixed number, if applicable. U, n, and d must be all be integers. If U is a non-integer, the result may be converted U вЂ¦ n/d. If n or d is a non-integer, a syntax error is displayed. The whole number, numerator, and denominator may each contain a maximum of three digits. Answers: Auto, Dec, Frac Auto displays answers in a similar format as the input. For example, if a fraction is entered in an expression, the answer will be in fraction form, if possible. If a decimal appears in the expression, the output will be a decimal number. Dec displays answers as integers or decimal numbers. Frac displays answers as fractions, if possible. Note: The Answers mode setting also affects how values in sequences, lists, and tables are displayed. Choose Dec or Frac to ensure that values are displayed in either decimal or fraction form. You can also convert values from decimal to fraction or fraction to decimal using the FRAC shortcut menu or the MATH menu. GoTo Format Graph: No, Yes No does not display the FORMAT graph screen, but can always be accessed by pressing y .. Chapter 1: Operating the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition 18 Yes leaves the mode screen and displays the FORMAT graph screen when you press ГЌ so that you can change the graph format settings. To return to the mode screen, press z. Stat Diagnostics: Off, On Off displays a statistical regression calculation without the correlation coefficient (r) or the coefficient of determination (r2). On displays a statistical regression calculation with the correlation coefficient (r), and the coefficient of determination (r2), as appropriate. Stat Wizards: On, Off On: Selection of menu items in STAT CALC, DISTR DISTR, DISTR DRAW and seq( in LIST OPS displays a screen which provides syntax help (wizard) for the entry of required and optional arguments into the command or function. The function or command will paste the entered arguments to the Home Screen history or to most other locations where the cursor is available for input. Some calculations will compute directly from the wizard. If a command or function is accessed from N the command or function will paste without wizard support. Run the Catalog Help application (Е’) for more syntax help when needed. Off: The function or command will paste to the cursor location with no syntax help (wizard) Set Clock Use the clock to set the time, date, and clock display formats. Using TI-84 Plus Variable Names Variables and Defined Items On the TI-84 Plus you can enter and use several types of data, including real and complex numbers, matrices, lists, functions, stat plots, graph databases, graph pictures, and strings. The TI-84 Plus uses assigned names for variables and other items saved in memory. For lists, you also can create your own five-character names. Variable Type Names Real numbers (including fractions) A, B, ... , Z, q Complex numbers A, B, ... , Z, q Matrices ГЈAГ¤, ГЈBГ¤, ГЈCГ¤, ... , ГЈJГ¤ Lists L1, L2, L3, L4, L5, L6, and user-defined names Functions Y1, Y2, ... , Y9, Y0 Parametric equations X1T and Y1T, ... , X6T and Y6T Chapter 1: Operating the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition 19 Variable Type Names Polar functions r1, r2, r3, r4, r5, r6 Sequence functions u, v, w Stat plots Plot1, Plot2, Plot3 Graph databases GDB1, GDB2, ... , GDB9, GDB0 Graph pictures Pic1, Pic2, ... , Pic9, Pic0 Strings Str1, Str2, ... , Str9, Str0 Apps Applications AppVars Application variables Groups Grouped variables System variables Xmin, Xmax, and others Notes about Variables вЂў You can create as many list names as memory will allow (Chapter 11). вЂў Programs have user-defined names and share memory with variables (Chapter 16). вЂў From the home screen or from a program, you can store to matrices (Chapter 10), lists (Chapter 11), strings (Chapter 15), system variables such as Xmax (Chapter 1), TblStart (Chapter 7), and all Y= functions (Chapters 3, 4, 5, and 6). вЂў From an editor, you can store to matrices, lists, and Y= functions (Chapter 3). вЂў From the home screen, a program, or an editor, you can store a value to a matrix element or a list element. вЂў You can use DRAW STO menu items to store and recall graph databases and pictures (Chapter 8). вЂў Although most variables can be archived, system variables including r, T, X, Y, and q cannot be archived (Chapter 18) вЂў Apps are independent applications.which are stored in Flash ROM. AppVars is a variable holder used to store variables created by independent applications. You cannot edit or change variables in AppVars unless you do so through the application which created them. Storing Variable Values Storing Values in a Variable Values are stored to and recalled from memory using variable names. When an expression containing the name of a variable is evaluated, the value of the variable at that time is used. To store a value to a variable from the home screen or a program using the Вї key, begin on a blank line and follow these steps. 1. Enter the value you want to store. The value can be an expression. 2. Press Вї. ! is copied to the cursor location. Chapter 1: Operating the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition 20 3. Press Ж’ and then the letter of the variable to which you want to store the value. 4. Press ГЌ. If you entered an expression, it is evaluated. The value is stored to the variable. Displaying a Variable Value To display the value of a variable, enter the name on a blank line on the home screen, and then press ГЌ. Archiving Variables (Archive, Unarchive) You can archive data, programs, or other variables in a section of memory called user data archive where they cannot be edited or deleted inadvertently. Archived variables are indicated by asterisks (Г¤) to the left of the variable names. Archived variables cannot be edited or executed. They can only be seen and unarchived. For example, if you archive list L1, you will see that L1 exists in memory but if you select it and paste the name L1 to the home screen, you wonвЂ™t be able to see its contents or edit it until it is unarchived. Recalling Variable Values Using Recall (RCL) To recall and copy variable contents to the current cursor location, follow these steps. To leave RCL, press вЂ�. 1. Press y K. RCL and the edit cursor are displayed on the bottom line of the screen. 2. Enter the name of the variable in one of five ways. вЂў Press Ж’ and then the letter of the variable. вЂў Press y 9, and then select the name of the list, or press y [Ln]. вЂў Press y >, and then select the name of the matrix. вЂў Press п‚ђ to display the VARS menu or п‚ђ ~ to display the VARS Y-VARS menu; then select the type and then the name of the variable or function. вЂў Press t a to display the YVAR shortcut menu, then select the name of the function. вЂў Press п‚Џ |, and then select the name of the program (in the program editor only). The variable name you selected is displayed on the bottom line and the cursor disappears. Chapter 1: Operating the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition 21 3. Press ГЌ. The variable contents are inserted where the cursor was located before you began these steps. Note: You can edit the characters pasted to the expression without affecting the value in memory. Scrolling Through Previous Entries on the Home Screen You can scroll up through previous entries and answers on the home screen, even if you have cleared the screen. When you find an entry or answer that you want to use, you can select it and paste it on the current entry line. Note: List and matrix answers cannot be copied and pasted to the new entry line. However, you can copy the list or matrix command to the new entry line and execute the command again to display the answer. f Press } or вЂ to move the cursor to the entry or answer you want to copy and then press ГЌ. TThe entry or answer that you copied is automatically pasted on the current input line at the cursor location. Note: If the cursor is in a MathPrintв„ў expression, press y } to move the cursor out of the expression and then move the cursor to the entry or answer you want to copy. f Press u or { to delete an entry/answer pair. After an entry/answer pair has been deleted, it cannot be displayed or recalled again. ENTRY (Last Entry) Storage Area Using ENTRY (Last Entry) When you press ГЌ on the home screen to evaluate an expression or execute an instruction, the expression or instruction is placed in a storage area called ENTRY (last entry). When you turn off the TI-84 Plus, ENTRY is retained in memory. To recall ENTRY, press y [. The last entry is pasted to the current cursor location, where you can edit and execute it. On the home screen or in an editor, the current line is cleared and the last entry is pasted to the line. Chapter 1: Operating the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition 22 Because the TI-84 Plus updates ENTRY only when you press ГЌ, you can recall the previous entry even if you have begun to enter the next expression. 5Гѓ7 ГЌ y[ Accessing a Previous Entry The TI-84 Plus retains as many previous entries as possible in ENTRY, up to a capacity of 128 bytes. To scroll those entries, press y [ repeatedly. If a single entry is more than 128 bytes, it is retained for ENTRY, but it cannot be placed in the ENTRY storage area. 1 ВїЖ’ A ГЌ 2ВїЖ’ B ГЌ y[ If you press y [ after displaying the oldest stored entry, the newest stored entry is displayed again, then the next-newest entry, and so on. y[ Executing the Previous Entry Again After you have pasted the last entry to the home screen and edited it (if you chose to edit it), you can execute the entry. To execute the last entry, press ГЌ. To execute the displayed entry again, press ГЌ again. Each subsequent execution displays the entry and the new answer. 0 ВїЖ’ N ГЌ Ж’ N Гѓ 1 ВїЖ’ N Ж’ ГЈ:Г¤Е Ж’Г„N ВЎ ГЌ ГЌ ГЌ Multiple Entry Values on a Line To store to ENTRY two or more expressions or instructions, separate each expression or instruction with a colon, then press ГЌ.

You can edit any of the entries, and then execute all of them when you press ГЌ. Example: For the equation A=pr 2, use trial and error to find the radius of a circle that covers 200 square centimeters. Use 8 as your first guess. 8 Вї Ж’ R Ж’ ГЈ :Г¤ yB Ж’ R ВЎГЌ y[ y | 7 y 6 Г‹ 95 ГЌ Continue until the answer is as accurate as you want. Clearing ENTRY Clear Entries (Chapter 18) clears all data that the TI-84 Plus is holding in the ENTRY storage area. Using Ans in an Expression When an expression is evaluated successfully from the home screen or from a program, the TI-84 Plus stores the answer to a storage area called Ans (last answer). Ans may be a real or complex number, a list, a matrix, or a string. When you turn off the TI-84 Plus, the value in Ans is retained in memory. You can use the variable Ans to represent the last answer in most places. Press y Z to copy the variable name Ans to the cursor location. When the expression is evaluated, the TI-84 Plus uses the value of Ans in the calculation. Calculate the area of a garden plot 1.7 meters by 4.2 meters. Then calculate the yield per square meter if the plot produces a total of 147 tomatoes. 1Г‹7ВЇ4Г‹2 ГЌ 147 ВҐ y Z ГЌ Chapter 1: Operating the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition 24 Continuing an Expression You can use Ans as the first entry in the next expression without entering the value again or pressing y Z. On a blank line on the home screen, enter the function. The TI-84 Plus pastes the variable name Ans to the screen, then the function. 5ВҐ2 ГЌ ВЇ9Г‹9 ГЌ Storing Answers To store an answer, store Ans to a variable before you evaluate another expression. Calculate the area of a circle of radius 5 meters. Next, calculate the volume of a cylinder of radius 5 meters and height 3.3 meters, and then store the result in the variable V. yB 5 ВЎ ГЌ ВЇ3Г‹3 ГЌ ВїЖ’ V ГЌ TI-84 Plus Menus Using a TI-84 Plus Menu You can access most TI-84 Plus operations using menus. When you press a key or key combination to display a menu, one or more menu names appear on the top line of the screen. вЂў The menu name on the left side of the top line is highlighted. Up to seven items in that menu are displayed, beginning with item 1, which also is highlighted. вЂў A number or letter identifies each menu itemвЂ™s place in the menu. The order is 1 through 9, then 0, then A, B, C, and so on. The LIST NAMES, PRGM EXEC, and PRGM EDIT menus only label items 1 through 9 and 0. вЂў When the menu continues beyond the displayed items, a down arrow ($) replaces the colon next to the last displayed item. вЂў When a menu item ends in an ellipsis (...), the item displays a secondary menu or editor when you select it. вЂў When an asterisk (Г¤) appears to the left of a menu item, that item is stored in user data archive (Chapter 18). Chapter 1: Operating the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition 25 Displaying a Menu While using your TI-84 Plus, you often will need to access items from its menus. When you press a key that displays a menu, that menu temporarily replaces the screen where you are working. For example, when you press п‚Ќ, the MATH menu is displayed as a full screen. After you select an item from a menu, the screen where you are working usually is displayed again. Moving from One Menu to Another Some keys access more than one menu. When you press such a key, the names of all accessible menus are displayed on the top line. When you highlight a menu name, the items in that menu are displayed.

Chapter 1: Operating the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition 28 Equation Operating System (EOSв„ў) Order of Evaluation The Equation Operating System (EOSв„ў) defines the order in which functions in expressions are entered and evaluated on the TI-84 Plus. EOSв„ў lets you enter numbers and functions in a simple, straightforward sequence. EOSв„ў evaluates the functions in an expression in this order. Order Number Function 1 Functions that precede the argument, such as вЂЎ, sin(, or log( 2 Functions that are entered after the argument, such as 2, M1, !, ВЎ, r, and conversions 3 Powers and roots, such as 25 or 5 x 32 4 Permutations (nPr) and combinations (nCr) 5 Multiplication, implied multiplication, and division 6 Addition and subtraction 7 Relational functions, such as > or п‚Ѓ 8 Logic operator and 9 Logic operators or and xor Note: Within a priority level, EOSв„ў evaluates functions from left to right. Calculations within parentheses are evaluated first. Implied Multiplication The TI-84 Plus recognizes implied multiplication, so you need not press ВЇ to express multiplication in all cases. For example, the TI-84 Plus interprets 2p, 4sin(46), 5(1+2), and (2вЂ¦5)7 as implied multiplication. Note: TI-84 Plus implied multiplication rules, although like the TI-83, differ from those of the TI-82. For example, the TI-84 Plus evaluates 1Г 2X as (1Г 2)вЂ¦X, while the TI-82 evaluates 1Г 2X as 1Г (2вЂ¦X) (Chapter 2). Parentheses All calculations inside a pair of parentheses are completed first. For example, in the expression 4(1+2), EOS first evaluates the portion inside the parentheses, 1+2, and then multiplies the answer, 3, by 4. Chapter 1: Operating the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition 29 Negation To enter a negative number, use the negation key. Press ГЊ and then enter the number. On the TI-84 Plus, negation is in the third level in the EOSв„ў hierarchy. Functions in the first level, such as squaring, are evaluated before negation. Example: MX2, evaluates to a negative number (or 0). Use parentheses to square a negative number. Note: Use the В№ key for subtraction and the ГЊ key for negation. If you press В№ to enter a negative number, as in 9 ВЇ В№ 7, or if you press ГЊ to indicate subtraction, as in 9 ГЊ 7, an error occurs. If you press Ж’ A ГЊ Ж’ B, it is interpreted as implied multiplication (AвЂ¦MB).

Read the chapter for details. For more probability simulations, try the Probability Simulations App for the TI-84 Plus. You can download this App from education.ti.com. Suppose you want to model flipping a fair coin 10 times. You want to track how many of those 10 coin flips result in heads. You want to perform this simulation 40 times. With a fair coin, the probability of a coin flip resulting in heads is 0.5 and the probability of a coin flip resulting in tails is 0.5. 1. Begin on the home screen. Press п‚Ќ | to display the MATH PRB menu. Press 7 to select 7:randBin( (random Binomial). randBin( is pasted to the home screen. Press 10 to enter the number of coin flips. Press Вў. Press Г‹ 5 to enter the probability of heads. Press Вў. Press 40 to enter the number of simulations. Press В¤. 2. Press ГЌ to evaluate the expression. A list of 40 elements is generated with the first 7 displayed. The list contains the count of heads resulting from each set of 10 coin flips. The list has 40 elements because this simulation was performed 40 times. In this example, the coin came up heads five times in the first set of 10 coin flips, five times in the second set of 10 coin flips, and so on. 3. Press ~ or | to view the additional counts in the list. An arrow (MathPrintв„ў mode) or an ellipses (Classic mode) indicate that the list continues beyond the screen. 4. Press Вї y d ГЌ to store the data to the list name L1. You then can use the data for another activity, such as plotting a histogram (Chapter 12). MathPrintв„ў Note: Since randBin( generates random numbers, your list elements may differ from those in the example. Classic Chapter 2: Math, Angle, and Test Operations 35 Keyboard Math Operations Using Lists with Math Operations Math operations that are valid for lists return a list calculated element by element. If you use two lists in the same expression, they must be the same length. Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division You can use + (addition, Гѓ), N (subtraction, В№), вЂ¦ (multiplication, ВЇ), and Г (division, ВҐ) with real and complex numbers, expressions, lists, and matrices. You cannot use Г with matrices. If you need to input A/2, enter this as A вЂ 1/2 or A вЂ .5. valueA+valueB valueAвЂ¦valueB valueA N valueB valueA Г valueB Trigonometric Functions You can use the trigonometric (trig) functions (sine, Лњ; cosine, в„ў; and tangent, ЕЎ) with real numbers, expressions, and lists. The current angle mode setting affects interpretation. For example, sin(30) in radian mode returns L.9880316241; in degree mode it returns .5. sin(value) cos(value) tan(value) You can use the inverse trig functions (arcsine, y ?; arccosine, y @; and arctangent, y A) with real numbers, expressions, and lists. The current angle mode setting affects interpretation. sinL1(value) cosL1(value) tanL1(value) Note: The trig functions do not operate on complex numbers. Power, Square, Square Root You can use ^ (power, вЂє), 2 (square, ВЎ), and вЂЎ( (square root, y C) with real and complex numbers, expressions, lists, and matrices. You cannot use вЂЎ( with matrices. MathPrintв„ў: valuepower value2 вЂЎ(value) Г€ Classic: value^power Г€ Chapter 2: Math, Angle, and Test Operations 36 Inverse You can use L1 (inverse, Е“) with real and complex numbers, expressions, lists, and matrices. The multiplicative inverse is equivalent to the reciprocal, 1Г x. value-1 log(, 10^(, ln( You can use log( (logarithm, В«), 10^( (power of 10, y G), and ln( (natural log, Ој) with real or complex numbers, expressions, and lists. log(value) MathPrintв„ў: 10power Classic: 10^(power) ln(value) Exponential e^( (exponential, y J) returns the constant e raised to a power.

In MathPrintв„ў mode, the default H is 1EM3. You can switch to Classic mode to change H for investigations. MathPrintв„ў Classic You can use nDeriv( once in expression. Because of the method used to calculate nDeriv(, the TI-84 Plus can return a false derivative value at a nondifferentiable point. fnInt( fnInt( (function integral) returns the numerical integral (Gauss-Kronrod method) of expression with respect to variable, given lower limit, upper limit, and a tolerance (if not specified, the default is 1ГўL5). fnInt( is valid only for real numbers. MathPrintв„ў: Classic: fnInt(expression,variable,lower,upper[,tolerance]) In MathPrintв„ў mode, the default H is 1EM3. You can switch to Classic mode to change H for investigations. Chapter 2: Math, Angle, and Test Operations 41 Note: To speed the drawing of integration graphs (when fnInt( is used in a Y= equation), increase the value of the Xres window variable before you press s. Using the Equation Solver Solver Solver displays the equation solver, in which you can solve for any variable in an equation. The equation is assumed to be equal to zero. Solver is valid only for real numbers. When you select Solver, one of two screens is displayed. вЂў The equation editor (see step 1 picture below) is displayed when the equation variable eqn is empty. вЂў The interactive solver editor is displayed when an equation is stored in eqn. Entering an Expression in the Equation Solver To enter an expression in the equation solver, assuming that the variable eqn is empty, follow these steps. 1. Select B:Solver from the MATH menu to display the equation editor. 2. Enter the expression in any of three ways. вЂў Enter the expression directly into the equation solver. вЂў Paste a Y= variable name from the YVARS shortcut menu (t a) to the equation solver. вЂў Press y K, paste a Y= variable name from the YVARS shortcut menu, and press ГЌ. The expression is pasted to the equation solver. The expression is stored to the variable eqn as you enter it. 3. Press ГЌ or вЂ .

Enter an initial guess for the variable for which you are solving. This is optional, but it may help find the solution more quickly. Also, for equations with multiple roots, the TI-84 Plus will attempt to display the solution that is closest to your guess. ( upper + lower ) The default guess is calculated as ----------------------------------------- . 2 4. Edit bound={lower,upper}. lower and upper are the bounds between which the TI-84 Plus searches for a solution. This is optional, but it may help find the solution more quickly. The default is bound={L1Гў99,1Гў99}. 5. Move the cursor to the variable for which you want to solve and press Ж’ \. вЂў The solution is displayed next to the variable for which you solved. A solid square in the first column marks the variable for which you solved and indicates that the equation is balanced. An ellipsis shows that the value continues beyond the screen. Note: When a number continues beyond the screen, be sure to press ~ to scroll to the end of the number to see whether it ends with a negative or positive exponent. A very small number may appear to be a large number until you scroll right to see the exponent. вЂў The values of the variables are updated in memory. вЂў leftNrt=diff is displayed in the last line of the editor. diff is the difference between the left and right sides of the equation when evaluated at the calculated solution. A solid square in the first column next to leftNrt indicates that the equation has been evaluated at the new value of the variable for which you solved. Editing an Equation Stored to eqn To edit or replace an equation stored to eqn when the interactive equation solver is displayed, press } until the equation editor is displayed. Then edit the equation. Equations with Multiple Roots Some equations have more than one solution. You can enter a new initial guess or new bounds to look for additional solutions. Further Solutions After you solve for a variable, you can continue to explore solutions from the interactive solver editor. Edit the values of one or more variables. When you edit any variable value, the solid Chapter 2: Math, Angle, and Test Operations 44 squares next to the previous solution and leftNrt=diff disappear. Move the cursor to the variable for which you now want to solve and press Ж’ \. Controlling the Solution for Solver or solve( The TI-84 Plus solves equations through an iterative process. To control that process, enter bounds that are relatively close to the solution and enter an initial guess within those bounds. This will help to find a solution more quickly. Also, it will define which solution you want for equations with multiple solutions. Using solve( on the Home Screen or from a Program The function solve( is available only from CATALOG or from within a program. It returns a solution (root) of expression for variable, given an initial guess, and lower and upper bounds within which the solution is sought. The default for lower is L1Гў99. The default for upper is L1Гў99. solve( is valid only for real numbers. solve(expression,variable,guess[,{lower,upper}]) expression is assumed equal to zero. The value of variable will not be updated in memory. guess may be a value or a list of two values. Values must be stored for every variable in expression, except variable, before expression is evaluated. lower and upper must be entered in list format.

Real mode a+bi mode $ $ Entering Complex Numbers Complex numbers are stored in rectangular form, but you can enter a complex number in rectangular form or polar form, regardless of the mode setting. The components of complex numbers can be real numbers or expressions that evaluate to real numbers; expressions are evaluated when the command is executed. You can enter fractions in complex numbers, but the output will always be a decimal value. When you use the n/d template, a fraction cannot contain a complex number. " You can use division to compute the answer: Chapter 2: Math, Angle, and Test Operations 51 Note about Radian Versus Degree Mode Radian mode is recommended for complex number calculations. Internally, the TI-84 Plus converts all entered trigonometric values to radians, but it does not convert values for exponential, logarithmic, or hyperbolic functions. In degree mode, complex identities such as e^(iq) = cos(q) + i sin(q) are not generally true because the values for cos and sin are converted to radians, while those for e^() are not. For example, e^(i45) = cos(45) + i sin(45) is treated internally as e^(i45) = cos(p/4) + i sin(p/4). Complex identities are always true in radian mode. Interpreting Complex Results Complex numbers in results, including list elements, are displayed in either rectangular or polar form, as specified by the mode setting or by a display conversion instruction. In the example below, polar-complex (re^qi) and Radian modes are set.

CoordOn, CoordOff CoordOn (coordinates on) displays the cursor coordinates at the bottom of the graph. If ExprOff format is selected, the function number is displayed in the top-right corner. CoordOff (coordinates off) does not display the function number or coordinates. GridOff, GridOn Grid points cover the viewing window in rows that correspond to the tick marks on each axis. GridOff does not display grid points. GridOn displays grid points. AxesOn, AxesOff AxesOn displays the axes. Chapter 3: Function Graphing 75 AxesOff does not display the axes. This overrides the LabelOff/ LabelOn format setting. LabelOff, LabelOn LabelOff and LabelOn determine whether to display labels for the axes (X and Y), if AxesOn format is also selected. ExprOn, ExprOff ExprOn and ExprOff determine whether to display the Y= expression when the trace cursor is active. This format setting also applies to stat plots. When ExprOn is selected, the expression is displayed in the top-left corner of the graph screen. When ExprOff and CoordOn both are selected, the number in the top-right corner specifies which function is being traced. Displaying Graphs Displaying a New Graph To display the graph of the selected function or functions, press s. TRACE, ZOOM instructions, and CALC operations display the graph automatically.

Smart Graph Smart Graph is a TI-84 Plus feature that redisplays the last graph immediately when you press s, but only if all graphing factors that would cause replotting have remained the same since the graph was last displayed. If you performed any of the following actions since the graph was last displayed, the TI-84 Plus will replot the graph based on new values when you press s. вЂў Changed a mode setting that affects graphs вЂў Changed a function in the current picture вЂў Selected or deselected a function or stat plot Chapter 3: Function Graphing 76 вЂў Changed the value of a variable in a selected function вЂў Changed a window variable or graph format setting вЂў Cleared drawings by selecting ClrDraw вЂў Changed a stat plot definition Overlaying Functions on a Graph On the TI-84 Plus, you can graph one or more new functions without replotting existing functions. For example, store sin(X) to Y1 in the Y= editor and press s. Then store cos(X) to Y2 and press s again. The function Y2 is graphed on top of Y1, the original function. Graphing a Family of Curves If you enter a list (Chapter 11) as an element in an expression, the TI-84 Plus plots the function for each value in the list, thereby graphing a family of curves. In Simul graphing-order mode, it graphs all functions sequentially for the first element in each list, and then for the second, and so on. {2,4,6}sin(X) graphs three functions: 2 sin(X), 4 sin(X), and 6 sin(X). {2,4,6}sin({1,2,3}X) graphs 2 sin(X), 4 sin(2X), and 6 sin(3X) . Note: When using more than one list, the lists must have the same dimensions. Chapter 3: Function Graphing 77 Exploring Graphs with the Free-Moving Cursor Free-Moving Cursor When a graph is displayed, press |, ~, }, or вЂ to move the cursor around the graph. When you first display the graph, no cursor is visible. When you press |, ~, }, or вЂ , the cursor moves from the center of the viewing window. As you move the cursor around the graph, the coordinate values of the cursor location are displayed at the bottom of the screen if CoordOn format is selected. The Float/Fix decimal mode setting determines the number of decimal digits displayed for the coordinate values. To display the graph with no cursor and no coordinate values, press вЂ� or ГЌ. When you press |, ~, }, or вЂ , the cursor moves from the same position. Graphing Accuracy The free-moving cursor moves from pixel to pixel on the screen. When you move the cursor to a pixel that appears to be on the function, the cursor may be near, but not actually on, the function. The coordinate value displayed at the bottom of the screen actually may not be a point on the function. To move the cursor along a function, use r. The coordinate values displayed as you move the cursor approximate actual math coordinates, accurate to within the width and height of the pixel. As Xmin, Xmax, Ymin, and Ymax get closer together (as in a Zoom In) graphing accuracy increases, and the coordinate values more closely approximate the math coordinates. Free- moving cursor appears to be on the curve Exploring Graphs with TRACE Beginning a Trace Use TRACE to move the cursor from one plotted point to the next along a function. To begin a trace, press r. If the graph is not displayed already, press r to display it. The trace cursor is on the first selected function in the Y= editor, at the middle X value on the screen. The cursor coordinates are displayed at the bottom of the screen if CoordOn format is selected. The Y= expression is displayed in the top-left corner of the screen, if ExprOn format is selected. Chapter 3: Function Graphing 78 Moving the Trace Cursor To move the TRACE cursor do this: To the previous or next plotted point, press | or ~. Five plotted points on a function (Xres affects this), press y | or y ~. To any valid X value on a function, enter a value, and then press ГЌ. From one function to another, press } or вЂ . When the trace cursor moves along a function, the Y value is calculated from the X value; that is, Y=Yn(X). If the function is undefined at an X value, the Y value is blank. Trace cursor on the curve If you move the trace cursor beyond the top or bottom of the screen, the coordinate values at the bottom of the screen continue to change appropriately. Moving the Trace Cursor from Function to Function To move the trace cursor from function to function, press вЂ and }. The cursor follows the order of the selected functions in the Y= editor. The trace cursor moves to each function at the same X value. If ExprOn format is selected, the expression is updated. Moving the Trace Cursor to Any Valid X Value To move the trace cursor to any valid X value on the current function, enter the value. When you enter the first digit, an X= prompt and the number you entered are displayed in the bottom-left corner of the screen. You can enter an expression at the X= prompt. The value must be valid for the current viewing window. When you have completed the entry, press ГЌ to move the cursor. Note: This feature does not apply to stat plots. Chapter 3: Function Graphing 79 Panning to the Left or Right If you trace a function beyond the left or right side of the screen, the viewing window automatically pans to the left or right. Xmin and Xmax are updated to correspond to the new viewing window. Quick Zoom While tracing, you can press ГЌ to adjust the viewing window so that the cursor location becomes the center of the new viewing window, even if the cursor is above or below the display. This allows panning up and down. After Quick Zoom, the cursor remains in TRACE. Leaving and Returning to TRACE When you leave and return to TRACE, the trace cursor is displayed in the same location it was in when you left TRACE, unless Smart Graph has replotted the graph. Using TRACE in a Program On a blank line in the program editor, press r. The instruction Trace is pasted to the cursor location. When the instruction is encountered during program execution, the graph is displayed with the trace cursor on the first selected function. As you trace, the cursor coordinate values are updated. When you finish tracing the functions, press ГЌ to resume program execution. Exploring Graphs with the ZOOM Instructions ZOOM Menu To display the ZOOM menu, press q.

Exploring Polar Graphs Free-Moving Cursor The free-moving cursor in Pol graphing works the same as in Func graphing. In RectGC format, moving the cursor updates the values of X and Y; if CoordOn format is selected, X and Y are displayed. In PolarGC format, X, Y, R, and q are updated; if CoordOn format is selected, R and q are displayed. TRACE To activate TRACE, press r. When TRACE is active, you can move the trace cursor along the graph of the equation one qstep at a time. When you begin a trace, the trace cursor is on the first selected function at qmin. If ExprOn format is selected, then the equation is displayed. In RectGC format, TRACE updates the values of X, Y, and q; if CoordOn format is selected, X, Y, and q are displayed. In PolarGC format, TRACE updates X, Y, R, and q; if CoordOn format is selected, R and q are displayed. To move five plotted points at a time on a function, press y | or y ~. If you move the trace cursor beyond the top or bottom of the screen, the coordinate values at the bottom of the screen continue to change appropriately. Quick Zoom is available in Pol graphing mode; panning is not. Moving the Trace Cursor to Any Valid Theta Value To move the trace cursor to any valid q value on the current function, enter the number. When you enter the first digit, a q= prompt and the number you entered are displayed in the bottom-left corner of the screen. You can enter an expression at the q= prompt. The value must be valid for the current viewing window. When you complete the entry, press ГЌ to move the cursor. Chapter 5: Polar Graphing 100 ZOOM ZOOM operations in Pol graphing work the same as in Func graphing. Only the X (Xmin, Xmax, and Xscl) and Y (Ymin, Ymax, and Yscl) window variables are affected. The q window variables (qmin, qmax, and qstep) are not affected, except when you select ZStandard. The VARS ZOOM secondary menu ZT/Zq items 4:Zqmin, 5:Zqmax, and 6:Zqstep are zoom memory variables for Pol graphing. CALC CALC operations in Pol graphing work the same as in Func graphing.

Chapter 5: Polar Graphing 101 Chapter 6: Sequence Graphing Getting Started: Forest and Trees Note: Getting Started is a fast-paced introduction. Read the chapter for details. A small forest of 4,000 trees is under a new forestry plan. Each year 20 percent of the trees will be harvested and 1,000 new trees will be planted. Will the forest eventually disappear? Will the forest size stabilize? If so, in how many years and with how many trees? 1. Press z. Press В вЂ вЂ вЂ ~ ~ ~ ГЌ to select Seq graphing mode. 2. Press y . and select Time axes format and ExprOn format if necessary. 3. Press o. If the graph-style icon is not Г§ (dot), press | |, press ГЌ until Г§ is displayed, and then press ~ ~. 4. Press п‚Ќ ~ 3 to select iPart( (integer part) because only whole trees are harvested. After each annual harvest, 80 percent (.80) of the trees remain. Press Г‹ 8 y [u] ВЈ вЂћ В№ 1 В¤ to define the number of trees after each harvest. Press Гѓ 1000 В¤ to define the new trees. Press вЂ 4000 to define the number of trees at the beginning of the program. Note: Be sure to press y [u], not t [U]. [u] is the second function of the В¬ key. 5. Press p 0 to set nMin=0. Press вЂ 50 to set nMax=50. nMin and nMax evaluate forest size over 50 years. Set the other window variables.

Press ~ to trace the sequence year by year. The sequence is displayed at the top of the screen. The values for n (number of years), X (X=n, because n is plotted on the x-axis), and Y (tree count) are displayed at the bottom. When will the forest stabilize? With how many trees? Defining and Displaying Sequence Graphs TI-84 Plus Graphing Mode Similarities The steps for defining a sequence graph are similar to the steps for defining a function graph. Chapter 6 assumes that you are familiar with Chapter 3: Function Graphing. Chapter 6 details aspects of sequence graphing that differ from function graphing. Setting Sequence Graphing Mode To display the mode screen, press z. To graph sequence functions, you must select Seq graphing mode before you enter window variables and before you enter sequence functions. Sequence graphs automatically plot in Simul mode, regardless of the current plotting-order mode setting. TI-84 Plus Sequence Functions u, v, and w The TI-84 Plus has three sequence functions that you can enter from the keyboard: u, v, and w. They are second functions of the В¬, в€’, and В® keys. Press y [u] to enter u, for example. You can define sequence functions in terms of: вЂў The independent variable n вЂў The previous term in the sequence function, such as u(nN1) вЂў The term that precedes the previous term in the sequence function, such as u(nN2) вЂў The previous term or the term that precedes the previous term in another sequence function, such as u(nN1) or u(nN2) referenced in the sequence v(n). Note: Statements in this chapter about u(n) are also true for v(n) and w(n); statements about u(nN1) are also true for v(nN1) and w(nN1); statements about u(nN2) are also true for v(nN2) and w(nN2). Displaying the Sequence Y= Editor After selecting Seq mode, press o to display the sequence Y= editor. Chapter 6: Sequence Graphing 103 In this editor, you can display and enter sequences for u(n), v(n), and w(n). Also, you can edit the value for nMin, which is the sequence window variable that defines the minimum n value to evaluate. The sequence Y= editor displays the nMin value because of its relevance to u(nMin), v(nMin), and w(nMin), which are the initial values for the sequence equations u(n), v(n), and w(n), respectively. nMin in the Y= editor is the same as nMin in the window editor. If you enter a new value for nMin in one editor, the new value for nMin is updated in both editors. Note: Use u(nMin), v(nMin), or w(nMin) only with a recursive sequence, which requires an initial value. Selecting Graph Styles The icons to the left of u(n), v(n), and w(n) represent the graph style of each sequence (Chapter 3). The default in Seq mode is Г (dot), which shows discrete values. Dot, Г§ (line), and ГЁ (thick) styles are available for sequence graphing. Graph styles are ignored in Web format. Selecting and Deselecting Sequence Functions The TI-84 Plus graphs only the selected sequence functions. In the Y= editor, a sequence function is selected when the = signs of both u(n)= and u(nMin)= are highlighted. To change the selection status of a sequence function, move the cursor onto the = sign of the function name, and then press ГЌ. The status is changed for both the sequence function u(n) and its initial value u(nMin). Defining and Editing a Sequence Function To define or edit a sequence function, follow the steps in Chapter 3 for defining a function. The independent variable in a sequence is n. In Seq graphing mode, you can enter the sequence variable in either of two ways. вЂў Press вЂћ. вЂў Press y N [N]. You can enter the function name from the keyboard (y [u], y [v], y [w]). Generally, sequences are either nonrecursive or recursive. Sequences are evaluated only at consecutive integer values. n is always a series of consecutive integers, starting at zero or any positive integer. Chapter 6: Sequence Graphing 104 Nonrecursive Sequences In a nonrecursive sequence, the nth term is a function of the independent variable n. Each term is independent of all other terms. For example, in the nonrecursive sequence below, you can calculate u(5) directly, without first calculating u(1) or any previous term. The sequence equation above returns the sequence 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, вЂ¦ for n = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, вЂ¦ . Note: You may leave blank the initial value u(nMin) when calculating nonrecursive sequences. Recursive Sequences In a recursive sequence, the nth term in the sequence is defined in relation to the previous term or the term that precedes the previous term, represented by u(nN1) and u(nN2). A recursive sequence may also be defined in relation to n, as in u(n)=u(nN1)+n. For example, in the sequence below you cannot calculate u(5) without first calculating u(1), u(2), u(3), and u(4). Using an initial value u(nMin) = 1, the sequence above returns 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, ... . Note: On the TI-84 Plus, you must type each character of the terms. For example, to enter u(nN1), press y [u] ВЈ вЂћ В№ ГЂ В¤. Recursive sequences require an initial value or values, since they reference undefined terms. вЂў If each term in the sequence is defined in relation to the previous term, as in u(nN1), you must specify an initial value for the first term. Chapter 6: Sequence Graphing 105 вЂў If each term in the sequence is defined in relation to the term that precedes the previous term, as in u(nN2), you must specify initial values for the first two terms. Enter the initial values as a list enclosed in brackets { } with commas separating the values. The value of the first term is 0 and the value of the second term is 1 for the sequence u(n). Setting Window Variables To display the window variables, press p. These variables define the viewing window. The values below are defaults for Seq graphing in both Radian and Degree angle modes. nMin=1 Smallest n value to evaluate nMax=10 Largest n value to evaluate PlotStart=1 First term number to be plotted PlotStep=1 Incremental n value (for graphing only) Xmin=L10 Smallest X value to be displayed Xmax=10 Largest X value to be displayed Xscl=1 Spacing between the X tick marks Ymin=L10 Smallest Y value to be displayed Ymax=10 Largest Y value to be displayed Yscl=1 Spacing between the Y tick marks nMin must be an integer | 0. nMax, PlotStart, and PlotStep must be integers | 1. nMin is the smallest n value to evaluate. nMin also is displayed in the sequence Y= editor. nMax is the largest n value to evaluate. Sequences are evaluated at u(nMin), u(nMin+1), u(nMin+2), ... , u(nMax). PlotStart is the first term to be plotted. PlotStart=1 begins plotting on the first term in the sequence. If you want plotting to begin with the fifth term in a sequence, for example, set PlotStart=5. The first four terms are evaluated but are not plotted on the graph. PlotStep is the incremental n value for graphing only. PlotStep does not affect sequence evaluation; it only designates which points are plotted on the graph. If you specify PlotStep=2, the sequence is evaluated at each consecutive integer, but it is plotted on the graph only at every other integer. Chapter 6: Sequence Graphing 106 Selecting Axes Combinations Setting the Graph Format To display the current graph format settings, press y .. Chapter 3 describes the format settings in detail. The other graphing modes share these format settings. The axes setting on the top line of the screen is available only in Seq mode. Time Web uv vw uw Type of sequence plot (axes) RectGC Polar GC Rectangular or polar output CoordOn CoordOff Cursor coordinate display on/off GridOff GridOn Grid display off or on AxesOn AxesOff Axes display on or off LableOff LabelOn Axes label display off or on ExprOn ExprOff Expression display on or off Setting Axes Format For sequence graphing, you can select from five axes formats. The table below shows the values that are plotted on the x-axis and y-axis for each axes setting. Axes Setting x-axis y-axis Time n u(n), v(n), w(n) Web u(nN1), v(nN1), w(nN1) u(n), v(n), w(n) uv u(n) v(n) vw v(n) w(n) uw u(n) w(n) Displaying a Sequence Graph To plot the selected sequence functions, press s. As a graph is plotted, the TI-84 Plus updates X, Y, and n. Smart Graph applies to sequence graphs (Chapter 3). Exploring Sequence Graphs Free-Moving Cursor The free-moving cursor in Seq graphing works the same as in Func graphing. In RectGC format, moving the cursor updates the values of X and Y; if CoordOn format is selected, X and Y are Chapter 6: Sequence Graphing 107 displayed. In PolarGC format, X, Y, R, and q are updated; if CoordOn format is selected, R and q are displayed. TRACE The axes format setting affects TRACE. When Time, uv, vw, or uw axes format is selected, TRACE moves the cursor along the sequence one PlotStep increment at a time. To move five plotted points at once, press y ~ or y |. вЂў When you begin a trace, the trace cursor is on the first selected sequence at the term number specified by PlotStart, even if it is outside the viewing window. вЂў Quick Zoom applies to all directions. To center the viewing window on the current cursor location after you have moved the trace cursor, pressГЌГЌ. The trace cursor returns to nMin. In Web format, the trail of the cursor helps identify points with attracting and repelling behavior in the sequence. When you begin a trace, the cursor is on the x-axis at the initial value of the first selected function. Note: To move the cursor to a specified n during a trace, enter a value for n, and press ГЌ. For example, to quickly return the cursor to the beginning of the sequence, paste nMin to the n= prompt and press ГЌ. Moving the Trace Cursor to Any Valid n Value To move the trace cursor to any valid n value on the current function, enter the number. When you enter the first digit, an n= prompt and the number you entered are displayed in the bottom-left corner of the screen. You can enter an expression at the n= prompt. The value must be valid for the current viewing window. When you have completed the entry, press ГЌ to move the cursor. ZOOM ZOOM operations in Seq graphing work the same as in Func graphing. Only the X (Xmin, Xmax, and Xscl) and Y (Ymin, Ymax, and Yscl) window variables are affected. PlotStart, PlotStep, nMin, and nMax are only affected when you select ZStandard. The VARS Zoom secondary menu ZU items 1 through 7 are the ZOOM MEMORY variables for Seq graphing. CALC The only CALC operation available in Seq graphing is value. Chapter 6: Sequence Graphing 108 вЂў When Time axes format is selected, value displays Y (the u(n) value) for a specified n value. вЂў When Web axes format is selected, value draws the web and displays Y (the u(n) value) for a specified n value. вЂў When uv, vw, or uw axes format is selected, value displays X and Y according to the axes format setting. For example, for uv axes format, X represents u(n) and Y represents v(n). Evaluating u, v, and w To enter the sequence names u, v, or w, press y [u], y [v], or y [w]. You can evaluate these names in any of three ways. вЂў Calculate the nth value in a sequence. вЂў Calculate a list of values in a sequence. вЂў Generate a sequence with u(nstart,nstop[,nstep]). nstep is optional; default is 1. Graphing Web Plots Graphing a Web Plot To select Web axes format, press y . ~ ГЌ. A web plot graphs u(n) versus u(nN1), which you can use to study long-term behavior (convergence, divergence, or oscillation) of a recursive sequence. You can see how the sequence may change behavior as its initial value changes. Valid Functions for Web Plots When Web axes format is selected, a sequence will not graph properly or will generate an error. вЂў It must be recursive with only one recursion level (u(nN1) but not u(nN2)). вЂў It cannot reference n directly. вЂў It cannot reference any defined sequence except itself. Displaying the Graph Screen In Web format, press s to display the graph screen. The TI-84 Plus: вЂў Draws a y=x reference line in AxesOn format. вЂў Plots the selected sequences with u(nN1) as the independent variable. Chapter 6: Sequence Graphing 109 Note: A potential convergence point occurs whenever a sequence intersects the y=x reference line. However, the sequence may or may not actually converge at that point, depending on the sequenceвЂ™s initial value. Drawing the Web To activate the trace cursor, press r. The screen displays the sequence and the current n, X, and Y values (X represents u(nN1) and Y represents u(n)). Press ~ repeatedly to draw the web step by step, starting at nMin. In Web format, the trace cursor follows this course. 1. It starts on the x-axis at the initial value u(nMin) (when PlotStart=1). 2. It moves vertically (up or down) to the sequence. 3. It moves horizontally to the y=x reference line. 4. It repeats this vertical and horizontal movement as you continue to press ~. Using Web Plots to Illustrate Convergence Example: Convergence 1. Press o in Seq mode to display the sequence Y= editor. Make sure the graph style is set to Г (dot), and then define nMin, u(n) and u(nMin) as u(n) = -.8u(n-1) + 3.6. 2. Press y . ГЌ to set Time axes format. 3. Press p and set the variables as shown below. nMin=1 nMax=25 PlotStart=1 PlotStep=1 Xmin=0 Xmax=25 Xscl=1 Ymin=L10 Ymax=10 Yscl=1 4. Press s to graph the sequence. 5. Press y . and select the Web axes setting. Chapter 6: Sequence Graphing 110 6. Press p and change the variables below. Xmin=L10 Xmax=10 7. Press s to graph the sequence. 8. Press r, and then press ~ to draw the web. The displayed cursor coordinates n, X (u(nN1)), and Y (u(n)) change accordingly. When you press ~, a new n value is displayed, and the trace cursor is on the sequence. When you press ~ again, the n value remains the same, and the cursor moves to the y=x reference line. This pattern repeats as you trace the web. Graphing Phase Plots Graphing with uv, vw, and uw The phase-plot axes settings uv, vw, and uw show relationships between two sequences. To select a phase-plot axes setting, press y ., press ~ until the cursor is on uv, vw, or uw, and then press ГЌ. Axes Setting x-axis y-axis uv u(n) v(n) vw v(n) w(n) uw u(n) w(n) Example: Predator-Prey Model Use the predator-prey model to determine the regional populations of a predator and its prey that would maintain population equilibrium for the two species. This example uses the model to determine the equilibrium populations of foxes and rabbits, with initial populations of 200 rabbits (u(nMin)) and 50 foxes (v(nMin)). These are the variables (given values are in parentheses): R = number of rabbits M = rabbit population growth rate without foxes (.05) K = rabbit population death rate with foxes (.001) W = number of foxes G = fox population growth rate with rabbits (.0002) Chapter 6: Sequence Graphing 111 D = fox population death rate without rabbits n = time (in months) Rn = R nN1(1+M NKW nN1) Wn = W nN1(1+GR nN1ND) (.03) 1.

You can also define a matrix using the MTRX shortcut menu (t `).The TI-84 Plus has 10 matrix variables, [A] through [J]. You can define a matrix directly in an expression. A matrix, depending on available memory, may have up to 99 rows or columns. You can store only real numbers in TI-84 Plus matrices. Fractions are stored as real numbers and can be used in matrices. Selecting a Matrix Before you can define or display a matrix in the editor, you first must select the matrix name. To do so, follow these steps. 1. Press y п‚Ћ | to display the MATRX EDIT menu. The dimensions of any previously defined matrices are displayed. 2. Select the matrix you want to define. The MATRX EDIT screen is displayed. Chapter 10: Matrices 145 Accepting or Changing Matrix Dimensions The dimensions of the matrix (row Г— column) are displayed on the top line. The dimensions of a new matrix are 1 Г— 1. You must accept or change the dimensions each time you edit a matrix. When you select a matrix to define, the cursor highlights the row dimension. вЂў To accept the row dimension, press ГЌ. вЂў To change the row dimension, enter the number of rows (up to 99), and then press ГЌ. The cursor moves to the column dimension, which you must accept or change the same way you accepted or changed the row dimension. When you press ГЌ, the rectangular cursor moves to the first matrix element. Viewing and Editing Matrix Elements Displaying Matrix Elements After you have set the dimensions of the matrix, you can view the matrix and enter values for the matrix elements. In a new matrix, all values are zero. Select the matrix from the MATRX EDIT menu and enter or accept the dimensions. The center portion of the matrix editor displays up to seven rows and three columns of a matrix, showing the values of the elements in abbreviated form if necessary. The full value of the current element, which is indicated by the rectangular cursor, is displayed on the bottom line. This is an 8 Г— 4 matrix. Ellipses in the left or right column indicate additional columns. # or $ in the right column indicate additional rows. Deleting a Matrix To delete matrices from memory, use the MEMORY MANAGEMENT/DELETE secondary menu (Chapter 18). Viewing a Matrix The matrix editor has two contexts, viewing and editing. In viewing context, you can use the cursor keys to move quickly from one matrix element to the next. The full value of the highlighted element is displayed on the edit line. Chapter 10: Matrices 146 Select the matrix from the MATRX EDIT menu, and then enter or accept the dimensions.

The list name becomes an item on the LIST NAMES menu. Note: If you want to view a user-created list in the stat list editor, you must retrieve the list in the stat list editor (Chapter 12). Chapter 11: Lists 162 You also can create a list name in these four places. вЂў At the Name= prompt in the stat list editor вЂў At an Xlist:, Ylist:, or Data List: prompt in the stat plot editor вЂў At a List:, List1:, List2:, Freq:, Freq1:, Freq2:, XList:, or YList: prompt in the inferential stat editors вЂў On the home screen using SetUpEditor You can create as many list names as your TI-84 Plus memory has space to store. Storing and Displaying Lists Storing Elements to a List You can store list elements in either of two ways. вЂў Use brackets and Вї on the home screen. вЂў Use the stat list editor (Chapter 12). The maximum dimension of a list is 999 elements. Note: When you store a complex number to a list, the entire list is converted to a list of complex numbers. To convert the list to a list of real numbers, display the home screen, and then enter real(listname)!listname. Displaying a List on the Home Screen To display the elements of a list on the home screen, enter the name of the list (preceded by Г™, if necessary), and then press ГЌ. An ellipsis indicates that the list continues beyond the viewing window. Press ~ repeatedly (or press and hold ~) to scroll the list and view all the list elements. Copying One List to Another To copy a list, store it to another list. Chapter 11: Lists 163 Accessing a List Element You can store a value to or recall a value from a specific list element. You can store to any element within the current list dimension or one element beyond. listname(element) Deleting a List from Memory To delete lists from memory, including L1 through L6, use the MEMORY MANAGEMENT/DELETE secondary menu (Chapter 18). Resetting memory restores L1 through L6. Removing a list from the stat list editor does not delete it from memory. Using Lists in Graphing To graph a family of curves, you can use lists (Chapter 3) or the Transformation Graphing App. Entering List Names Using the LIST NAMES Menu To display the LIST NAMES menu, press y 9. Each item is a user-created list name except for L1 through L6. LIST NAMES menu items are sorted automatically in alphanumerical order. Only the first 10 items are labeled, using 1 through 9, then 0. To jump to the first list name that begins with a particular alpha character or q, press Ж’ [letter from A to Z or q]. Note: From the top of a menu, press } to move to the bottom. From the bottom, press вЂ to move to the top. When you select a list name from the LIST NAMES menu, the list name is pasted to the current cursor location. вЂў The list name symbol Г™ precedes a list name when the name is pasted where non-list name data also is valid, such as the home screen. Chapter 11: Lists 164 вЂў The Г™ symbol does not precede a list name when the name is pasted where a list name is the only valid input, such as the stat list editorвЂ™s Name= prompt or the stat plot editorвЂ™s XList: and YList: prompts. Entering a User-Created List Name Directly To enter an existing list name directly, follow these steps. 1. Press y 9 ~ to display the LIST OPS menu. 2. Select B:Г™, which pastes Г™ to the current cursor location. Г™ is not always necessary. Note: You also can paste Г™ to the current cursor location from the CATALOG. 3. Enter the characters that comprise the list name. Attaching Formulas to List Names Attaching a Formula to a List Name You can attach a formula to a list name so that each list element is a result of the formula. When executed, the attached formula must resolve to a list. When anything in the attached formula changes, the list to which the formula is attached is updated automatically. вЂў When you edit an element of a list that is referenced in the formula, the corresponding element in the list to which the formula is attached is updated. вЂў When you edit the formula itself, all elements in the list to which the formula is attached are updated. For example, the first screen below shows that elements are stored to L3, and the formula L3+10 is attached to the list name Г™ADD10. The quotation marks designate the formula to be attached to Г™ADD10. Each element of Г™ADD10 is the sum of an element in L3 and 10. The next screen shows another list, L4. The elements of L4 are the sum of the same formula that is attached to L3. However, quotation marks are not entered, so the formula is not attached to L4. Chapter 11: Lists 165 On the next line, L6!L3(1):L3 changes the first element in L3 to L6, and then redisplays L3. The last screen shows that editing L3 updated Г™ADD10, but did not change L4. This is because the formula L3+10 is attached to Г™ADD10, but it is not attached to L4. Note: To view a formula that is attached to a list name, use the stat list editor (Chapter 12). Attaching a Formula to a List on the Home Screen or in a Program To attach a formula to a list name from a blank line on the home screen or from a program, follow these steps. 1. Press Ж’ [ГЈ], enter the formula (which must resolve to a list), and press Ж’ [ГЈ] again. Note: When you include more than one list name in a formula, each list must have the same dimension. 2. Press Вї. 3. Enter the name of the list to which you want to attach the formula. вЂў Press y, and then enter a TI-84 Plus list name L1 through L6. вЂў Press y 9 and select a user.created list name from the LIST NAMES menu. вЂў Enter a user.created list name directly using Г™. 4. Press ГЌ. Note: The stat list editor displays a formula-lock symbol next to each list name that has an attached formula. Chapter 12 describes how to use the stat list editor to attach formulas to lists, edit attached formulas, and detach formulas from lists. Detaching a Formula from a List You can detach (clear) an attached formula from a list in several ways. For example: вЂў Enter ГЈ ГЈ !listname on the home screen. Chapter 11: Lists 166 вЂў Edit any element of a list to which a formula is attached. вЂў Use the stat list editor (Chapter 12). вЂў Use ClrList or ClrAllList to detach a formula from a list (Chapter 18). Using Lists in Expressions You can use lists in an expression in any of three ways. When you press ГЌ, any expression is evaluated for each list element, and a list is displayed. вЂў Use L1вЂ“L6 or any user-created list name in an expression. вЂў Enter the list elements directly. вЂў Use y K to recall the contents of the list into an expression at the cursor location (Chapter 1). Note: You must paste user-created list names to the Rcl prompt by selecting them from the LIST NAMES menu. You cannot enter them directly using Г™. Using Lists with Math Functions You can use a list to input several values for some math functions. See Appendix A specify for information about where a list is valid. The function is evaluated for each list element, and a list is displayed. вЂў When you use a list with a function, the function must be valid for every element in the list. In graphing, an invalid element, such as L1 in вЂЎ({1,0,L1}), is ignored. This returns an error. This graphs XвЂ¦вЂЎ(1) and XвЂ¦вЂЎ(0), but skips XвЂ¦вЂЎ(L1). вЂў When you use two lists with a two-argument function, the dimension of each list must be the same. The function is evaluated for corresponding elements. Chapter 11: Lists 167 вЂў When you use a list and a value with a two-argument function, the value is used with each element in the list.

SortA(listname) SortD(listname) Chapter 11: Lists 168 With two or more lists, SortA( and SortD( sort keylistname, and then sort each dependlist by placing its elements in the same order as the corresponding elements in keylistname. All lists must have the same dimension. SortA(keylistname,dependlist1[,dependlist2,...,dependlist n]) SortD(keylistname,dependlist1[,dependlist2,...,dependlist n]) Note: вЂў In the example, 5 is the first element in L4, and 1 is the first element in L5. After SortA(L4,L5), 5 becomes the second element of L4, and likewise, 1 becomes the second element of L5. вЂў SortA( and SortD( are the same as SortA( and SortD( on the STAT EDIT menu (Chapter 12). вЂў You cannot sort a locked list. Using dim( to Find List Dimensions dim( (dimension) returns the length (number of elements) of list. dim(list) Using dim( to Create a List You can use dim( with Вї to create a new listname with dimension length from 1 to 999. The elements are zeros. length!dim(listname) Using dim( to Redimension a List You can use dim with Вї to redimension an existing listname to dimension length from 1 to 999. вЂў The elements in the old listname that are within the new dimension are not changed. вЂў Extra list elements are filled by 0. вЂў Elements in the old list that are outside the new dimension are deleted. Chapter 11: Lists 169 length!dim(listname) Fill( Fill( replaces each element in listname with value. Fill(value,listname) Note: dim( and Fill( are the same as dim( and Fill( on the MATRX MATH menu (Chapter 10). seq( seq( (sequence) returns a list in which each element is the result of the evaluation of expression with regard to variable for the values ranging from begin to end at steps of increment. variable need not be defined in memory. increment can be negative; the default value for increment is 1. seq( is not valid within expression. Complex lists are not valid. A wizard will open to assist the entry of the syntax. Note: seq( is the only function in LIST OPS that has a wizard. seq(expression,variable,begin,end[,increment]) cumSum( cumSum( (cumulative sum) returns the cumulative sums of the elements in list, starting with the first element. list elements can be real or complex numbers. cumSum(list) Chapter 11: Lists 170 @List( @List( returns a list containing the differences between consecutive elements in list. @List subtracts the first element in list from the second element, subtracts the second element from the third, and so on. The list of differences is always one element shorter than the original list. list elements can be a real or complex numbers. @List(list) Select( Select( selects one or more specific data points from a scatter plot or xyLine plot (only), and then stores the selected data points to two new lists, xlistname and ylistname. For example, you can use Select( to select and then analyze a portion of plotted CBL 2в„ў/CBLв„ў or CBRв„ў data. Select(xlistname,ylistname) Note: Before you use Select(, you must have selected (turned on) a scatter plot or xyLine plot. Also, the plot must be displayed in the current viewing window.

If the number of listname arguments exceeds the number of columns in matrix, then Matr4list( ignores extra listname arguments. Likewise, if the number of columns in matrix exceeds the number of listname arguments, then Matr4list( ignores extra matrix columns. Matr4list(matrix,listname1,listname2, . . . ,listname n) Matr4list( also fills a listname with elements from a specified column# in matrix. To fill a list with a specific column from matrix, you must enter a column# after matrix. Matr4list(matrix,column#,listname) Г™ preceding one to five characters identifies those characters as a user-created listname. listname may comprise letters, q, and numbers, but it must begin with a letter from A to Z or q. Г™listname Generally, Г™ must precede a user-created list name when you enter a user-created list name where other input is valid, for example, on the home screen. Without the Г™, the TI-84 Plus may misinterpret a user-created list name as implied multiplication of two or more characters. Г™ need not precede a user-created list name where a list name is the only valid input, for example, at the Name= prompt in the stat list editor or the Xlist: and Ylist: prompts in the stat plot editor. If you enter Г™ where it is not necessary, the TI-84 Plus will ignore the entry. Chapter 11: Lists 174 LIST MATH Menu LIST MATH Menu To display the LIST MATH menu, press y 9 |.

Chapter 12: Statistics 181 Notice the pattern of the residuals: a group of negative residuals, then a group of positive residuals, and then another group of negative residuals. The residual pattern indicates a curvature associated with this data set for which the linear model did not account. The residual plot emphasizes a downward curvature, so a model that curves down with the data would be more accurate. Perhaps a function such as square root would fit. Try a power regression to fit a function of the form y = a вЂ¦ xb. 23. Press o to display the Y= editor. Press вЂ� to clear the linear regression equation from Y1. Press } ГЌ to turn on plot 1.

Press ГЌ to calculate the power regression. Values for a and b are displayed on the home screen. The power regression equation is stored in Y1. Residuals are calculated and stored automatically in the list name RESID. 27. Press s. The regression line and the scatter plot are displayed. Chapter 12: Statistics 182 The new function y=.192x.522 appears to fit the data well. To get more information, examine a residual plot. 28. Press o to display the Y= editor. Press | ГЌ to deselect Y1. Press } ГЌ to turn off plot 1. Press ~ ГЌ to turn on plot 2. Note: Step 19 defined plot 2 to plot residuals (RESID) versus string length (L1). 29. Press q 9 to select 9:ZoomStat from the ZOOM menu. The window variables are adjusted automatically, and plot 2 is displayed. This is a scatter plot of the residuals. The new residual plot shows that the residuals are random in sign, with the residuals increasing in magnitude as the string length increases. To see the magnitudes of the residuals, continue with these steps. 30. Press r. Press ~ and | to trace the data. Observe the values for Y at each point. With this model, the largest positive residual is about 0.041 and the smallest negative residual is about L0.027. All other residuals are less than 0.02 in magnitude. Now that you have a good model for the relationship between length and period, you can use the model to predict the period for a given string length. To predict the periods for a pendulum with string lengths of 20 cm and 50 cm, continue with these steps. 31. Press п‚ђ ~ 1 to display the VARS Y-VARS FUNCTION secondary menu, and then press 1 to select 1:Y1. Y1 is pasted to the home screen. Note: You can also use the YVARS (t a) shortcut menu to select Y1. 32. Press ВЈ 20 В¤ to enter a string length of 20 cm. Press ГЌ to calculate the predicted time of about 0.92 seconds. Based on the residual analysis, we would expect the prediction of about 0.92 seconds to be within about 0.02 seconds of the actual value. Chapter 12: Statistics 183 33. Press y [ to recall the Last Entry. Press | | | 5 to change the string length to 50 cm. 34. Press ГЌ to calculate the predicted time of about 1.48 seconds. Since a string length of 50 cm exceeds the lengths in the data set, and since residuals appear to be increasing as string length increases, we would expect more error with this estimate. Note: You also can make predictions using the table with the TABLE SETUP settings Indpnt:Ask and Depend:Auto (Chapter 7). Setting Up Statistical Analyses Using Lists to Store Data Data for statistical analyses is stored in lists, which you can create and edit using the stat list editor. The TI-84 Plus has six list variables in memory, L1 through L6, to which you can store data for statistical calculations. Also, you can store data to list names that you create (Chapter 11). Setting Up a Statistical Analysis To set up a statistical analysis, follow these steps. Read the chapter for details. 1. Enter the statistical data into one or more lists. 2. Plot the data. 3. Calculate the statistical variables or fit a model to the data. 4. Graph the regression equation for the plotted data. 5. Graph the residuals list for the given regression model. Displaying the Stat List Editor The stat list editor is a table where you can store, edit, and view up to 20 lists that are in memory. Also, you can create list names from the stat list editor. To display the stat list editor, press вЂ¦, and then select 1:Edit from the STAT EDIT menu. Chapter 12: Statistics 184 The top line displays list names. L1 through L6 are stored in columns 1 through 6 after a memory reset. The number of the current column is displayed in the top-right corner. The bottom line is the entry line. All data entry occurs on this line. The characteristics of this line change according to the current context. The center area displays up to seven elements of up to three lists; it abbreviates values when necessary. The entry line displays the full value of the current element. Using the Stat List Editor Entering a List Name in the Stat List Editor To enter a list name in the stat list editor, follow these steps. 1. Display the Name= prompt in the entry line in either of two ways. вЂў Move the cursor onto the list name in the column where you want to insert a list, and then press y 6. An unnamed column is displayed and the remaining lists shift right one column. вЂў Press } until the cursor is on the top line, and then press ~ until you reach the unnamed column. Note: If list names are stored to all 20 columns, you must remove a list name to make room for an unnamed column. The Name= prompt is displayed and alpha-lock is on. 2. Enter a valid list name in any of four ways. вЂў Select a name from the LIST NAMES menu (Chapter 11). вЂў Enter L1, L2, L3, L4, L5, or L6 from the keyboard. вЂў Enter an existing user-created list name directly from the keyboard. вЂў Enter a new user-created list name. 3. Press ГЌ or вЂ to store the list name and its elements, if any, in the current column of the stat list editor. Chapter 12: Statistics 185 To begin entering, scrolling, or editing list elements, press вЂ . The rectangular cursor is displayed. Note: If the list name you entered in step 2 already was stored in another stat list editor column, then the list and its elements, if any, move to the current column from the previous column. Remaining list names shift accordingly. Creating a Name in the Stat List Editor To create a name in the stat list editor, follow these steps. 1. Display the Name= prompt. 2. Press [letter from A to Z or q] to enter the first letter of the name. The first character cannot be a number. 3. Enter zero to four letters, q, or numbers to complete the new user-created list name. List names can be one to five characters long. 4. Press ГЌ or вЂ to store the list name in the current column of the stat list editor. The list name becomes an item on the LIST NAMES menu (Chapter 11). Removing a List from the Stat List Editor To remove a list from the stat list editor, move the cursor onto the list name and then press {. The list is not deleted from memory; it is only removed from the stat list editor. Notes: вЂў To delete a list name from memory, use the MEMORY MANAGEMENT/DELETE secondary menu (Chapter 18). вЂў If you archive a list, it will be removed from the stat list editor. Removing All Lists and Restoring L1 through L6 You can remove all user-created lists from the stat list editor and restore list names L1 through L6 to columns 1 through 6 in either of two ways. вЂў Use SetUpEditor with no arguments. вЂў Reset all memory (Chapter 18). Chapter 12: Statistics 186 Clearing All Elements from a List You can clear all elements from a list in any of five ways. вЂў Use ClrList to clear specified lists. вЂў In the stat list editor, press } to move the cursor onto a list name, and then press вЂ� ГЌ. вЂў In the stat list editor, move the cursor onto each element, and then press { one by one. вЂў On the home screen or in the program editor, enter 0!dim(listname) to set the dimension of listname to 0 (Chapter 11). вЂў Use ClrAllLists to clear all lists in memory (Chapter 18). Editing a List Element To edit a list element, follow these steps. 1. Move the cursor onto the element you want to edit. 2. Press ГЌ to move the cursor to the entry line. Note: If you want to replace the current value, you can enter a new value without first pressing ГЌ. When you enter the first character, the current value is cleared automatically. 3. Edit the element in the entry line. вЂў Press one or more keys to enter the new value. When you enter the first character, the current value is cleared automatically. You can use the shortcut menus to enter values. When you use n/d to enter a fraction, it is not displayed as a stacked fraction in the list. Instead, the fraction has a thick bar separating the numerator and denominator. Thick-bar fraction on the list editor entry line: Thin-bar fraction on the home screen (regular division): Note: Order of operations applies to fractions. For example, evaluates to because the order of operations dictates that division is performed before addition. To evaluate , enter with parentheses around the numerator. вЂў Press ~ to move the cursor to the character before which you want to insert, press y 6, and then enter one or more characters. вЂў Press ~ to move the cursor to a character you want to delete, and then press { to delete the character. To cancel any editing and restore the original element at the rectangular cursor, press вЂ� ГЌ. Chapter 12: Statistics 187 Note: You can enter expressions and variables for elements. 4. Press ГЌ, }, or вЂ to update the list. If you entered an expression, it is evaluated. If you entered only a variable, the stored value is displayed as a list element. When you edit a list element in the stat list editor, the list is updated in memory immediately. Attaching Formulas to List Names Attaching a Formula to a List Name in Stat List Editor You can attach a formula to a list name in the stat list editor, and then display and edit the calculated list elements. When executed, the attached formula must resolve to a list. Chapter 11 describes in detail the concept of attaching formulas to list names. To attach a formula to a list name that is stored in the stat list editor, follow these steps. 1. Press вЂ¦ ГЌ to display the stat list editor. 2. Press } to move the cursor to the top line. 3. Press | or ~, if necessary, to move the cursor onto the list name to which you want to attach the formula. Note: If a formula in quotation marks is displayed on the entry line, then a formula is already attached to the list name. To edit the formula, press ГЌ, and then edit the formula. 4. Press Ж’ ГЈГЈГ¤, enter the formula, and press Ж’ ГЈГЈГ¤. Note: If you do not use quotation marks, the TI-84 Plus calculates and displays the same initial list of answers, but does not attach the formula for future calculations. Note: Any user-created list name referenced in a formula must be preceded by an Г™ symbol (Chapter 11). Chapter 12: Statistics 188 5. Press ГЌ. The TI-84 Plus calculates each list element and stores it to the list name to which the formula is attached. A lock symbol is displayed in the stat list editor, next to the list name to which the formula is attached. lock symbol Using the Stat List Editor When Formula-Generated Lists Are Displayed When you edit an element of a list referenced in an attached formula, the TI-84 Plus updates the corresponding element in the list to which the formula is attached (Chapter 11). When a list with a formula attached is displayed in the stat list editor and you edit or enter elements of another displayed list, then the TI-84 Plus takes slightly longer to accept each edit or entry than when no lists with formulas attached are in view. Note: To speed editing time, scroll horizontally until no lists with formulas are displayed, or rearrange the stat list editor so that no lists with formulas are displayed. Handling Errors Resulting from Attached Formulas On the home screen, you can attach to a list a formula that references another list with dimension 0 (Chapter 11). However, you cannot display the formula-generated list in the stat list editor or on the home screen until you enter at least one element to the list that the formula references. All elements of a list referenced by an attached formula must be valid for the attached formula. For example, if Real number mode is set and the attached formula is log(L1), then each element of L1 must be greater than 0, since the logarithm of a negative number returns a complex result. When you use the shortcut menus, all values must be valid for use in the templates. For example, if you use the n/d template, both the numerator and denominator must be integers. Notes: вЂў If an error menu is returned when you attempt to display a formula-generated list in the stat list editor, you can select 2:Goto, write down the formula that is attached to the list, and then press вЂ� ГЌ to detach (clear) the formula. You then can use the stat list editor to find the Chapter 12: Statistics 189 source of the error. After making the appropriate changes, you can reattach the formula to a list. вЂў If you do not want to clear the formula, you can select 1:Quit, display the referenced list on the home screen, and find and edit the source of the error. To edit an element of a list on the home screen, store the new value to listname(element#) (Chapter 11). Detaching Formulas from List Names Detaching a Formula from a List Name You can detach (clear) a formula from a list name in several ways. For example: вЂў In the stat list editor, move the cursor onto the name of the list to which a formula is attached. Press ГЌ вЂ� ГЌ. All list elements remain, but the formula is detached and the lock symbol disappears. вЂў In the stat list editor, move the cursor onto an element of the list to which a formula is attached. Press ГЌ, edit the element, and then press ГЌ. The element changes, the formula is detached, and the lock symbol disappears. All other list elements remain. вЂў Use ClrList. All elements of one or more specified lists are cleared, each formula is detached, and each lock symbol disappears. All list names remain. вЂў Use ClrAllLists (Chapter 18). All elements of all lists in memory are cleared, all formulas are detached from all list names, and all lock symbols disappear. All list names remain. Editing an Element of a Formula-Generated List As described above, one way to detach a formula from a list name is to edit an element of the list to which the formula is attached. The TI-84 Plus protects against inadvertently detaching the formula from the list name by editing an element of the formula-generated list. Because of the protection feature, you must press ГЌ before you can edit an element of a formula-generated list. The protection feature does not allow you to delete an element of a list to which a formula is attached. To delete an element of a list to which a formula is attached, you must first detach the formula in any of the ways described above. Switching Stat List Editor Contexts Stat List Editor Contexts The stat list editor has four contexts. вЂў View-elements context вЂў View-names context Chapter 12: Statistics 190 вЂў Edit-elements context вЂў Enter-name context The stat list editor is first displayed in view-elements context.

Chapter 12: Statistics 191 Stat List Editor Contexts View-Elements Context In view-elements context, the entry line displays the list name, the current elementвЂ™s place in that list, and the full value of the current element, up to 12 characters at a time. An ellipsis (...) indicates that the element continues beyond 12 characters. To page down the list six elements, press Ж’ вЂ . To page up six elements, press Ж’ }. To delete a list element, press {. Remaining elements shift up one row. To insert a new element, press y 6. 0 is the default value for a new element. Edit-Elements Context In edit-elements context, the data displayed in the entry line depends on the previous context. вЂў When you switch to edit-elements context from view-elements context, the full value of the current element is displayed. You can edit the value of this element, and then press вЂ and } to edit other list elements. вЂў When you switch to edit-elements context from view-names context, the full values of all elements in the list are displayed. An ellipsis indicates that list elements continue beyond the screen. You can press ~ and | to edit any element in the list. Note: In edit-elements context, you can attach a formula to a list name only if you switched to it from view-names context. Chapter 12: Statistics 192 View-Names Context In view-names context, the entry line displays the list name and the list elements. To remove a list from the stat list editor, press {. Remaining lists shift to the left one column. The list is not deleted from memory. To insert a name in the current column, press y 6. Remaining columns shift to the right one column. Enter-Name Context In enter-name context, the Name= prompt is displayed in the entry line, and alpha-lock is on. At the Name= prompt, you can create a new list name, paste a list name from L1 to L6 from the keyboard, or paste an existing list name from the LIST NAMES menu (Chapter 11). The Г™ symbol is not required at the Name= prompt. To leave enter-name context without entering a list name, press вЂ�. The stat list editor switches to view-names context. STAT EDIT Menu STAT EDIT Menu To display the STAT EDIT menu, press вЂ¦. EDIT CALC TESTS 1: Edit...

Chapter 12: Statistics 193 SortA(, SortD( SortA( (sort ascending) sorts list elements from low to high values. SortD( (sort descending) sorts list elements from high to low values. Complex lists are sorted based on magnitude (modulus). SortA( and SortD( each can sort in either of two ways. вЂў With one listname, SortA( and SortD( sort the elements in listname and update the list in memory. вЂў With two or more lists, SortA( and SortD( sort keylistname, and then sort each dependlist by placing its elements in the same order as the corresponding elements in keylistname. This lets you sort two-variable data on X and keep the data pairs together. All lists must have the same dimension. The sorted lists are updated in memory. SortA(listname) SortD(listname) SortA(keylistname,dependlist1[,dependlist2,...,dependlist n]) SortD(keylistname,dependlist1[,dependlist2,...,dependlist n]) Note: SortA( and SortD( are the same as SortA( and SortD( on the LIST OPS menu. ClrList ClrList clears (deletes) from memory the elements of one or more listnames. ClrList also detaches any formula attached to a listname. ClrList listname1,listname2,...,listname n Note: To clear from memory all elements of all list names, use ClrAllLists (Chapter 18). SetUpEditor With SetUpEditor you can set up the stat list editor to display one or more listnames in the order that you specify. You can specify zero to 20 listnames. Additionally, if you want to use listnames which happen to be archived, the SetUp Editor will automatically unarchive the listnames and place them in the stat list editor at the same time. SetUpEditor [listname1,listname2,...,listname n] Chapter 12: Statistics 194 SetUpEditor removes all list names from the stat list editor and then stores listnames in the stat list editor columns in the specified order, beginning in column 1. MathPrintв„ў Classic If you enter a listname that is not stored in memory already, then listname is created and stored in memory; it becomes an item on the LIST NAMES menu. Restoring L1 through L6 to the Stat List Editor SetUpEditor with no listnames removes all list names from the stat list editor and restores list names L1 through L6 in the stat list editor columns 1 through 6. Regression Model Features Regression Model Features STAT CALC menu items 3 through C are regression models. The automatic residual list and automatic regression equation features apply to all regression models. Diagnostics display mode applies to some regression models. Automatic Residual List When you execute a regression model, the automatic residual list feature computes and stores the residuals to the list name RESID. RESID becomes an item on the LIST NAMES menu (Chapter 11). Chapter 12: Statistics 195 The TI-84 Plus uses the formula below to compute RESID list elements. The next section describes the variable RegEQ. RESID = Ylistname N RegEQ(Xlistname) Automatic Regression Equation Each regression model has an optional argument, regequ, for which you can specify a Y= variable such as Y1. Upon execution, the regression equation is stored automatically to the specified Y= variable and the Y= function is selected. MathPrintв„ў MathPrintв„ў Classic MathPrintв„ў Classic Regardless of whether you specify a Y= variable for regequ, the regression equation always is stored to the TI-84 Plus variable RegEQ, which is item 1 on the VARS Statistics EQ secondary menu. Note: For the regression equation, you can use the fixed-decimal mode setting to control the number of digits stored after the decimal point (Chapter 1). However, limiting the number of digits to a small number could affect the accuracy of the fit. Diagnostics Display Mode When you execute some regression models, the TI-84 Plus computes and stores diagnostics values for r (correlation coefficient) and r2 (coefficient of determination) or for R2 (coefficient of determination). You can control whether these values are displayed by turning StatDiagnostics on or off on the mode screen. r and r2 are computed and stored for these regression models. LinReg(ax+b) LinReg(a+bx) LnReg ExpReg PwrReg Chapter 12: Statistics 196 R2 is computed and stored for these regression models. QuadReg CubicReg QuartReg The r and r2 that are computed for LnReg, ExpReg, and PwrReg are based on the linearly transformed data. For example, for ExpReg (y=ab^x), r and r2 are computed on ln y=ln a+x(ln b). By default, these values are not displayed with the results of a regression model when you execute it. However, you can set the diagnostics display mode by executing the DiagnosticOn or DiagnosticOff instruction. Each instruction is in the CATALOG (Chapter 15). вЂў To turn diagnostics on or off from the mode screen, select On or Off for StatDiagnostics. The default is Off. вЂў To set DiagnosticOn or DiagnosticOff from the home screen, press y N, and then select the instruction for the mode you want. The instruction is pasted to the home screen. Press ГЌ to set the mode. When DiagnosticOn is set, diagnostics are displayed with the results when you execute a regression model. MathPrintв„ў Classic When DiagnosticOff is set, diagnostics are not displayed with the results when you execute a regression model. MathPrintв„ў Classic Chapter 12: Statistics 197 STAT CALC Menu STAT CALC Menu To display the STAT CALC menu, press вЂ¦ ~.

If you do not specify freqlist, then the default is 1 occurrence of each list element. STAT WIZARDS in STAT CALC When STAT WIZARDS is set to ON in MODE, a wizard will open by default. The wizard will prompt for required and optional arguments. In STAT CALC, select Calculate to paste the populated command to home screen and display the results to a temporary view. Note: After a calculation, statistical variables are available in the VARS menu. Chapter 12: Statistics 198 The following screens demonstrate the STAT WIZARDS flow for a STAT CALC menu command. 1. Press press вЂ¦ ~ to select the STAT CALC menu. Select 1 ГЌ to select the 1 -Var Stats menu. Note: In this example, data has been entered in L1. 2. The 1 -Var Stats wizard opens. Enter the values in the wizard. Scroll down to Calculate and press ГЌ. Note: FreqList is an optional argument. 3. The STAT CALC results are displayed. 4. Press вЂ to scroll down through the data. Note: This is a temporary view. Press п‚ђ 5 to view the statistic variables after clearing the temporary result screen. 5. Press вЂ� to clear the data from the screen. 6. Press } to view the populated command pasted. If the STAT WIZARD mode option if OFF, for each STAT CALC menu item, if neither Xlistname nor Ylistname is specified, then the default list names are L1 and L2. If you do not specify freqlist, then the default is 1 occurrence of each list element. Frequency of Occurrence for Data Points For most STAT CALC menu items, you can specify a list of data occurrences, or frequencies (freqlist). Each element in freqlist indicates how many times the corresponding data point or data pair occurs in the data set you are analyzing. For example, if L1={15,12,9,14} and Г™FREQ={1,4,1,3}, then the TI-84 Plus interprets the instruction 1-Var Stats L1, Г™FREQ to mean that 15 occurs once, 12 occurs four times, 9 occurs once, and 14 occurs three times. Chapter 12: Statistics 199 Each element in freqlist must be вЂљ 0, and at least one element must be > 0. Noninteger freqlist elements are valid. This is useful when entering frequencies expressed as percentages or parts that add up to 1. However, if freqlist contains noninteger frequencies, Sx and Sy are undefined; values are not displayed for Sx and Sy in the statistical results. 1-Var Stats 1-Var Stats (one-variable statistics) analyzes data with one measured variable. Each element in freqlist is the frequency of occurrence for each corresponding data point in Xlistname. freqlist elements must be real numbers > 0. 1-Var Stats [Xlistname,freqlist] 2-Var Stats 2-Var Stats (two-variable statistics) analyzes paired data. Xlistname is the independent variable. Ylistname is the dependent variable. Each element in freqlist is the frequency of occurrence for each data pair (Xlistname,Ylistname). 2-Var Stats [Xlistname,Ylistname,freqlist] Med-Med (ax+b) Med-Med (median-median) fits the model equation y=ax+b to the data using the median-median line (resistant line) technique, calculating the summary points x1, y1, x2, y2, x3, and y3.

LinReg(ax+b) [Xlistname,Ylistname,freqlist,regequ] QuadReg (ax2+bx+c) QuadReg (quadratic regression) fits the second-degree polynomial y=ax2+bx+c to the data. It displays values for a, b, and c; when DiagnosticOn is set, it also displays a value for R2. For three data points, the equation is a polynomial fit; for four or more, it is a polynomial regression. At least three data points are required. QuadReg [Xlistname,Ylistname,freqlist,regequ] CubicRegвЂ”(ax 3+bx 2+cx+d) CubicReg (cubic regression) fits the third-degree polynomial y=ax 3+bx 2+cx+d to the data. It displays values for a, b, c, and d; when DiagnosticOn is set, it also displays a value for R2. For four points, the equation is a polynomial fit; for five or more, it is a polynomial regression. At least four points are required. CubicReg [Xlistname,Ylistname,freqlist,regequ] Chapter 12: Statistics 201 QuartRegвЂ”(ax 4+bx 3+cx 2+ dx+e) QuartReg (quartic regression) fits the fourth-degree polynomial y=ax 4+bx 3+cx 2+dx+e to the data. It displays values for a, b, c, d, and e; when DiagnosticOn is set, it also displays a value for R2. For five points, the equation is a polynomial fit; for six or more, it is a polynomial regression. At least five points are required. QuartReg [Xlistname,Ylistname,freqlist,regequ] LinRegвЂ”(a+bx) LinReg(a+bx) (linear regression) fits the model equation y=a+bx to the data using a least-squares fit. It displays values for a (y-intercept) and b (slope); when DiagnosticOn is set, it also displays values for r2 and r. LinReg(a+bx) [Xlistname,Ylistname,freqlist,regequ] LnRegвЂ”(a+b ln(x)) LnReg (logarithmic regression) fits the model equation y=a+b ln(x) to the data using a leastsquares fit and transformed values ln(x) and y.

PwrReg [Xlistname,Ylistname,freqlist,regequ] LogisticвЂ”c/(1+aвЂ¦e-bx) Logistic fits the model equation y=c/(1+aвЂ¦eLbx) to the data using an iterative least-squares fit. It displays values for a, b, and c. Logistic [Xlistname,Ylistname,freqlist,regequ] SinRegвЂ”a sin(bx+c)+d SinReg (sinusoidal regression) fits the model equation y=a sin(bx+c)+d to the data using an iterative least-squares fit. It displays values for a, b, c, and d. At least four data points are required. At least two data points per cycle are required in order to avoid aliased frequency estimates. Chapter 12: Statistics 203 SinReg [iterations,Xlistname,Ylistname,period,regequ] iterations is the maximum number of times the algorithm will iterate to find a solution. The value for iterations can be an integer вЂљ 1 and п‚Ѓ 16; if not specified, the default is 3. The algorithm may find a solution before iterations is reached. Typically, larger values for iterations result in longer execution times and better accuracy for SinReg, and vice versa. A period guess is optional. If you do not specify period, the difference between time values in Xlistname must be equal and the time values must be ordered in ascending sequential order. If you specify period, the algorithm may find a solution more quickly, or it may find a solution when it would not have found one if you had omitted a value for period. If you specify period, the differences between time values in Xlistname can be unequal. Note: The output of SinReg is always in radians, regardless of the Radian/Degree mode setting. SinReg Example: Daylight Hours in Alaska for One Year Compute the regression model for the number of hours of daylight in Alaska during one year. MathPrintв„ў Classic 1 period With noisy data, you will achieve better convergence results when you specify an accurate estimate for period. You can obtain a period guess in either of two ways. Chapter 12: Statistics 204 вЂў Plot the data and trace to determine the x-distance between the beginning and end of one complete period, or cycle. The illustration above and to the right graphically depicts a complete period, or cycle. вЂў Plot the data and trace to determine the x-distance between the beginning and end of N complete periods, or cycles. Then divide the total distance by N. After your first attempt to use SinReg and the default value for iterations to fit the data, you may find the fit to be approximately correct, but not optimal. For an optimal fit, execute SinReg 16,Xlistname,Ylistname,2p/b where b is the value obtained from the previous SinReg execution. Manual Linear Fit Manual Linear Fit allows you to visually fit a linear function to a scatter plot. Manual Linear Fit is an option in the вЂ¦ / menu.

Statistical Analysis in a Program Entering Stat Data You can enter statistical data, calculate statistical results, and fit models to data from a program. You can enter statistical data into lists directly within the program (Chapter 11). Statistical Calculations To perform a statistical calculation from a program, follow these steps. 1. On a blank line in the program editor, select the type of calculation from the STAT CALC menu. 2. Enter the names of the lists to use in the calculation. Separate the list names with a comma. 3. Enter a comma and then the name of a Y= variable, if you want to store the regression equation to a Y= variable. Chapter 12: Statistics 207 Statistical Plotting Steps for Plotting Statistical Data in Lists You can plot statistical data that is stored in lists. The six types of plots available are scatter plot, xyLine, histogram, modified box plot, regular box plot, and normal probability plot. You can define up to three plots. To plot statistical data in lists, follow these steps. 1. Store the stat data in one or more lists. 2. Select or deselect Y= functions as appropriate. 3. Define the stat plot. 4. Turn on the plots you want to display. 5. Define the viewing window. 6. Display and explore the graph. Scatter Scatter (")plots plot the data points from Xlist and Ylist as coordinate pairs, showing each point as a box ( вЂє ), cross ( + ), or dot ( В¦ ). Xlist and Ylist must be the same length. You can use the same list for Xlist and Ylist. xyLine xyLine (Г“)is a scatter plot in which the data points are plotted and connected in order of appearance in Xlist and Ylist. You may want to use SortA( or SortD( to sort the lists before you plot them. Chapter 12: Statistics 208 Histogram Histogram (Г’) plots one-variable data. The Xscl window variable value determines the width of each bar, beginning at Xmin. ZoomStat adjusts Xmin, Xmax, Ymin, and Ymax to include all values, and also adjusts Xscl. The inequality (Xmax N Xmin) Г Xscl п‚Ѓ 47 must be true. A value that occurs on the edge of a bar is counted in the bar to the right. ModBoxplot ModBoxplot (Г•) (modified box plot) plots one-variable data, like the regular box plot, except points that are 1.5 вЂ¦ Interquartile Range beyond the quartiles. (The Interquartile Range is defined as the difference between the third quartile Q3 and the first quartile Q1.) These points are plotted individually beyond the whisker, using the Mark (вЂє or + or В¦) you select. You can trace these points, which are called outliers. The prompt for outlier points is x=, except when the outlier is the maximum point (maxX) or the minimum point (minX). When outliers exist, the end of each whisker will display x=. When no outliers exist, minX and maxX are the prompts for the end of each whisker. Q1, Med (median), and Q3 define the box. Box plots are plotted with respect to Xmin and Xmax, but ignore Ymin and Ymax. When two box plots are plotted, the first one plots at the top of the screen and the second plots in the middle. When three are plotted, the first one plots at the top, the second in the middle, and the third at the bottom. Boxplot Boxplot (Г–)(regular box plot) plots one-variable data. The whiskers on the plot extend from the minimum data point in the set (minX) to the first quartile (Q1) and from the third quartile (Q3) to the maximum point (maxX). The box is defined by Q1, Med (median), and Q3. Box plots are plotted with respect to Xmin and Xmax, but ignore Ymin and Ymax. When two box plots are plotted, the first one plots at the top of the screen and the second plots in the middle. Chapter 12: Statistics 209 When three are plotted, the first one plots at the top, the second in the middle, and the third at the bottom. NormProbPlot NormProbPlot (Г”) (normal probability plot) plots each observation X in Data List versus the corresponding quantile z of the standard normal distribution. If the plotted points lie close to a straight line, then the plot indicates that the data are normal. Enter a valid list name in the Data List field. Select X or Y for the Data Axis setting. вЂў If you select X, the TI-84 Plus plots the data on the x-axis and the z-values on the y-axis. вЂў If you select Y, the TI-84 Plus plots the data on the y-axis and the z-values on the x-axis. Defining the Plots To define a plot, follow these steps. 1. Press y ,. The STAT PLOTS menu is displayed with the current plot definitions. 2. Select the plot you want to use. The stat plot editor is displayed for the plot you selected. Chapter 12: Statistics 210 3. Press ГЌ to select On if you want to plot the statistical data immediately. The definition is stored whether you select On or Off. 4. Select the type of plot. Each type prompts for the options checked in this table.

The name of the current stat plot (Plot1, Plot2, or Plot3) is highlighted in the top line of the stat plot editor. To display the stat plot editor for a different plot, press } and ~ to move the cursor onto the name in the top line, and then press ГЌ. The stat plot editor for the selected plot is displayed, and the selected name remains highlighted. Chapter 12: Statistics 211 Turning On and Turning Off Stat Plots PlotsOn and PlotsOff allow you to turn on or turn off stat plots from the home screen or a program. With no plot number, PlotsOn turns on all plots and PlotsOff turns off all plots. With one or more plot numbers (1, 2, and 3), PlotsOn turns on specified plots, and PlotsOff turns off specified plots. PlotsOff [1,2,3] PlotsOn [1,2,3] Note: You also can turn on and turn off stat plots in the top line of the Y= editor (Chapter 3). Defining the Viewing Window Stat plots are displayed on the current graph. To define the viewing window, press p and enter values for the window variables. ZoomStat redefines the viewing window to display all statistical data points. Tracing a Stat Plot When you trace a scatter plot or xyLine, tracing begins at the first element in the lists. When you trace a histogram, the cursor moves from the top center of one column to the top center of the next, starting at the first column. When you trace a box plot, tracing begins at Med (the median). Press | to trace to Q1 and minX. Press ~ to trace to Q3 and maxX. When you press } or вЂ to move to another plot or to another Y= function, tracing moves to the current or beginning point on that plot (not the nearest pixel). The ExprOn/ExprOff format setting applies to stat plots (Chapter 3). When ExprOn is selected, the plot number and plotted data lists are displayed in the top-left corner. Statistical Plotting in a Program Defining a Stat Plot in a Program To display a stat plot from a program, define the plot, and then display the graph.

Chapter 12: Statistics 214 Chapter 13: Inferential Statistics and Distributions Getting Started: Mean Height of a Population Getting Started is a fast-paced introduction. Read the chapter for details. Suppose you want to estimate the mean height of a population of women given the random sample below. Because heights among a biological population tend to be normally distributed, a t distribution confidence interval can be used when estimating the mean. The 10 height values below are the first 10 of 90 values, randomly generated from a normally distributed population with an assumed mean of 165.1 centimeters and a standard deviation of 6.35 centimeters (randNorm(165.1,6.35,90) with a seed of 789). Height (in centimeters) of Each of 10 Women 169.43 168.33 159.55 169.97 159.79 181.42 171.17 162.04 167.15 159.53 1. Press вЂ¦ ГЌ to display the stat list editor. Press } to move the cursor onto L1, and then press y 6 to insert a new list. The Name= prompt is displayed on the bottom line. The Г� cursor indicates that alpha-lock is on.

Enter [H] [G] [H] [T] at the Name= prompt, and then press ГЌ to create the list to store the womenвЂ™s height data. Press вЂ to move the cursor into the first row of the list. HGHT(1)= is displayed on the bottom line. Press ГЌ. 3. Press 169 Г‹ 43 to enter the first height value. As you enter it, it is displayed on the bottom line. Press ГЌ. The value is displayed in the first row, and the rectangular cursor moves to the next row. Enter the other nine height values the same way. Chapter 13: Inferential Statistics and Distributions 215 4. Press вЂ¦ | to display the STAT TESTS menu, and then press вЂ until 8:TInterval is highlighted. 5. Press ГЌ to select 8:TInterval. The inferential stat editor for TInterval is displayed. If Data is not selected for Inpt:, press | ГЌ to select Data. Press вЂ y 9 and press вЂ until HGHT is highlighted and then press ГЌ. Press вЂ вЂ Г‹ 99 to enter a 99 percent confidence level at the C-Level: prompt. 6. Press вЂ to move the cursor onto Calculate, and then press ГЌ. The confidence interval is calculated, and the TInterval results are displayed on the home screen. Interpreting the results The first line, (159.74,173.94), shows that the 99 percent confidence interval for the population mean is between about 159.74 centimeters and 173.94 centimeters. This is about a 14.2 centimeters spread. The .99 confidence level indicates that in a very large number of samples, we expect 99 percent of the intervals calculated to contain the population mean. The actual mean of the population sampled is 165.1 centimeters, which is in the calculated interval. The second line gives the mean height of the sample v used to compute this interval. The third line gives the sample standard deviation Sx. The bottom line gives the sample size n. To obtain a more precise bound on the population mean m of womenвЂ™s heights, increase the sample size to 90. Use a sample mean v of 163.8 and sample standard deviation Sx of 7.1 calculated from the larger random sample. This time, use the Stats (summary statistics) input option. 1. Press вЂ¦ | 8 to display the inferential stat editor for TInterval. Press ~ ГЌ to select Inpt:Stats. The editor changes so that you can enter summary statistics as input. Chapter 13: Inferential Statistics and Distributions 216 2. Press В вЂ 163 Г‹ 8 ГЌ to store 163.8 to v. Press 7 Г‹ 1 ГЌ to store 7.1 to Sx. Press 90 ГЌ to store 90 to n. 3. Press вЂ to move the cursor onto Calculate, and then press ГЌ to calculate the new 99 percent confidence interval. The results are displayed on the home screen. If the height distribution among a population of women is normally distributed with a mean m of 165.1 centimeters and a standard deviation s of 6.35 centimeters, what height is exceeded by only 5 percent of the women (the 95th percentile)? 4.

The editors vary according to each test or intervalвЂ™s input requirements. Below is the inferential stat editor for T-Test. Note: When you select the ANOVA( instruction, it is pasted to the home screen. ANOVA( does not have an editor screen. Using an Inferential Stat Editor To use an inferential stat editor, follow these steps. Chapter 13: Inferential Statistics and Distributions 218 1. Select a hypothesis test or confidence interval from the STAT TESTS menu. The appropriate editor is displayed. 2. Select Data or Stats input, if the selection is available. The appropriate editor is displayed. 3. Enter real numbers, list names, or expressions for each argument in the editor. 4. Select the alternative hypothesis (Ж’Г„, <, or >) against which to test, if the selection is available. 5. Select No or Yes for the Pooled option, if the selection is available. 6. Select Calculate or Draw (when Draw is available) to execute the instruction. вЂў When you select Calculate, the results are displayed on the home screen. вЂў When you select Draw, the results are displayed in a graph. This chapter describes the selections in the above steps for each hypothesis test and confidence interval instruction. Select an alternative hypothesis Select Data or Stats input Enter values for arguments Select Calculate or Draw output Selecting Data or Stats Most inferential stat editors prompt you to select one of two types of input. (1-PropZInt and 2-PropZTest, 1-PropZInt and 2-PropZInt, c2-Test, c2GOF-Test, LinRegTInt, and LinRegTTest do not.) вЂў Select Data to enter the data lists as input. вЂў Select Stats to enter summary statistics, such as v, Sx, and n, as input. To select Data or Stats, move the cursor to either Data or Stats, and then press ГЌ. Entering the Values for Arguments Inferential stat editors require a value for every argument. If you do not know what a particular argument symbol represents, see the Inferential Statistics Input Descriptions tables. When you enter values in any inferential stat editor, the TI-84 Plus stores them in memory so that you can run many tests or intervals without having to reenter every value. Selecting an Alternative Hypothesis (Г„Ж’ < >) Most of the inferential stat editors for the hypothesis tests prompt you to select one of three alternative hypotheses. вЂў The first is a Ж’ alternative hypothesis, such as mЖ’m0 for the Z-Test. вЂў The second is a < alternative hypothesis, such as m1<m2 for the 2-SampTTest. Chapter 13: Inferential Statistics and Distributions 219 вЂў The third is a > alternative hypothesis, such as p1>p2 for the 2-PropZTest. To select an alternative hypothesis, move the cursor to the appropriate alternative, and then press ГЌ. Selecting the Pooled Option Pooled (2-SampTTest and 2-SampTInt only) specifies whether the variances are to be pooled for the calculation. вЂў Select No if you do not want the variances pooled. Population variances can be unequal. вЂў Select Yes if you want the variances pooled. Population variances are assumed to be equal. To select the Pooled option, move the cursor to Yes, and then press ГЌ. Selecting Calculate or Draw for a Hypothesis Test After you have entered all arguments in an inferential stat editor for a hypothesis test, you must select whether you want to see the calculated results on the home screen (Calculate) or on the graph screen (Draw). вЂў Calculate calculates the test results and displays the outputs on the home screen. вЂў Draw draws a graph of the test results and displays the test statistic and p-value with the graph. The window variables are adjusted automatically to fit the graph. To select Calculate or Draw, move the cursor to either Calculate or Draw, and then press ГЌ. The instruction is immediately executed. Selecting Calculate for a Confidence Interval After you have entered all arguments in an inferential stat editor for a confidence interval, select Calculate to display the results. The Draw option is not available. When you press ГЌ, Calculate calculates the confidence interval results and displays the outputs on the home screen. Bypassing the Inferential Stat Editors To paste a hypothesis test or confidence interval instruction to the home screen without displaying the corresponding inferential stat editor, select the instruction you want from the CATALOG menu. Appendix A describes the input syntax for each hypothesis test and confidence interval instruction. Note: You can paste a hypothesis test or confidence interval instruction to a command line in a program. From within the program editor, select the instruction from either the CATALOG (Chapter 15) or the STAT TESTS menu.

TVM Solver TVM Solver displays the TVM Solver. Calculating Time Value of Money (TVM) Calculating Time Value of Money Use time-value-of-money (TVM) functions (menu items 2 through 6) to analyze financial instruments such as annuities, loans, mortgages, leases, and savings. Each TVM function takes zero to six arguments, which must be real numbers. The values that you specify as arguments for TVM functions are not stored to the TVM variables. Note: To store a value to a TVM variable, use the TVM Solver or use Вї and any TVM variable on the FINANCE VARS menu. If you enter less than six arguments, the TI-84 Plus substitutes a previously stored TVM variable value for each unspecified argument. If you enter any arguments with a TVM function, you must place the argument or arguments in parentheses. Chapter 14: Applications 255 tvm_Pmt tvm_Pmt computes the amount of each payment. tvm_Pmt[(ГІГљ,ВѕГ¦,PV,FV,P/Y,C/Y)] Note: In the example above, the values are stored to the TVM variables in the TVM Solver. The payment (tvm_Pmt) is computed on the home screen using the values in the TVM Solver. Next, the interest rate is changed to 9.5 to illustrate the effect on the payment amount. tvm_I% tvm_Г¦ computes the annual interest rate. tvm_ВѕГ¦ [(Гљ,PV,PMT,FV,P/Y,C/Y)] Classic MathPrintв„ў tvm_PV tvm_PV computes the present value. tvm_PV[(Гљ,ВѕГ¦,PMT,FV,P/Y,C/Y)] MathPrintв„ў Classic tvm_N tvm_Гљ computes the number of payment periods.

Creating and Deleting Programs What Is a Program? A program is a set of one or more command lines. Each line contains one or more instructions. When you execute a program, the TI-84 Plus performs each instruction on each command line in the same order in which you entered them. The number and size of programs that the TI-84 Plus can store is limited only by available memory. Operating Systems versions and programming вЂў Programs created with OS 2.43 and earlier should run correctly but may give unexpected results when you run them using OS 2.53MP and higher. You should test programs created with earlier OS versions to make sure you get the desired results. вЂў Programs can run in Classic or MathPrintв„ў mode. вЂў Shortcut menus are available wherever the MATH menu can be accessed. вЂў MathPrintв„ў templates are not available for programs. All input and output is in Classic format. вЂў You can use fractions in programs, but you should test the program to make sure that you get the desired results. вЂў The spacing of the display may be slightly different in MathPrintв„ў mode than in Classic mode. If you prefer the spacing in Classic mode, set the mode using a command in your program. Screen shots for the examples in this chapter were taken in Classic mode. вЂў Stat Wizards are available only for syntax help for functions in the DISTR DISTR menu and the seq( function (sequence) in the LIST OPS menu.

E: Return Returns from a subroutine. F: Stop Stops execution. G: DelVar Deletes a variable from within program. H: GraphStyle( Designates the graph style to be drawn. I: OpenLib( No longer used. J: ExecLib( No longer used. These menu items direct the flow of an executing program. They make it easy to repeat or skip a group of commands during program execution. When you select an item from the menu, the name is pasted to the cursor location on a command line in the program. To return to the program editor without selecting an item, press вЂ�. Controlling Program Flow Program control instructions tell the TI-84 Plus which command to execute next in a program. If, While, and Repeat check a defined condition to determine which command to execute next. Conditions frequently use relational or Boolean tests (Chapter 2), as in: Chapter 16: Programming 281 If A<7:A+1!A or If N=1 and M=1:Goto Z If Use If for testing and branching. If condition is false (zero), then the command immediately following If is skipped. If condition is true (nonzero), then the next command is executed. If instructions can be nested. :If condition :command (if true) :command Program Output If-Then Then following an If executes a group of commands if condition is true (nonzero). End identifies the end of the group of commands. :If condition :Then :command (if true) :command (if true) :End :command Program Output If-Then-Else Else following If-Then executes a group of commands if condition is false (zero). End identifies the end of the group of commands. :If condition :Then Chapter 16: Programming 282 :command (if true) :command (if true) :Else :command (if false) :command (if false) :End :command Program Output Note: In OS 2.53MP and higher, the program name displays again when you press ГЌ to repeat the program. For( For( loops and increments. It increments variable from begin to end by increment. increment is optional (default is 1) and can be negative (end<begin). end is a maximum or minimum value not to be exceeded. End identifies the end of the loop. For( loops can be nested. :For(variable,begin,end[,increment]) :command (while end not exceeded) :command (while end not exceeded) :End :command Program Output While While performs a group of commands while condition is true. condition is frequently a relational test (Chapter 2). condition is tested when While is encountered. If condition is true (nonzero), the program executes a group of commands. End signifies the end of the group. When condition is false (zero), the program executes each command following End. While instructions can be nested. :While condition :command (while condition is true) Chapter 16: Programming 283 :command (while condition is true) :End :command Program Output Repeat Repeat repeats a group of commands until condition is true (nonzero). It is similar to While, but condition is tested when End is encountered; therefore, the group of commands is always executed at least once. Repeat instructions can be nested. :Repeat condition :command (until condition is true) :command (until condition is true) :End :command Program Output End End identifies the end of a group of commands. You must include an End instruction at the end of each For(, While, or Repeat loop. Also, you must paste an End instruction at the end of each If-Then group and each If-Then-Else group. Pause Pause suspends execution of the program so that you can see answers or graphs. During the pause, the pause indicator is on in the top-right corner. Press ГЌ to resume execution. вЂў Pause without a value temporarily pauses the program. If the DispGraph or Disp instruction has been executed, the appropriate screen is displayed. вЂў Pause with value displays value on the current home screen. value can be scrolled. Chapter 16: Programming 284 Pause [value] Program Output Lbl, Goto Lbl (label) and Goto (go to) are used together for branching. Lbl specifies the label for a command. label can be one or two characters (A through Z, 0 through 99, or q). Lbl label Goto causes the program to branch to label when Goto is encountered. Goto label Program Output Chapter 16: Programming 285 IS>( IS>( (increment and skip) adds 1 to variable. If the answer is > value (which can be an expression), the next command is skipped; if the answer is { value, the next command is executed. variable cannot be a system variable. :IS>(variable,value) :command (if answer п‚Ѓ value) :command (if answer > value) Program Output Note: IS>( is not a looping instruction. DS<( DS<( (decrement and skip) subtracts 1 from variable. If the answer is < value (which can be an expression), the next command is skipped; if the answer is | value, the next command is executed. variable cannot be a system variable. :DS<(variable,value) :command (if answer вЂљ value) :command (if answer < value) Program Output Note: DS<( is not a looping instruction. Menu( Menu( sets up branching within a program. If Menu( is encountered during program execution, the menu screen is displayed with the specified menu items, the pause indicator is on, and execution pauses until you select a menu item. The menu title is enclosed in quotation marks ( " ). Up to seven pairs of menu items follow. Each pair comprises a text item (also enclosed in quotation marks) to be displayed as a menu selection, and a label item to which to branch if you select the corresponding menu selection. Menu("title","text1",label1,"text2",label2, . . .) Program Output Chapter 16: Programming 286 The program above pauses until you select 1 or 2. If you select 2, for example, the menu disappears and the program continues execution at Lbl B. prgm Use prgm to execute other programs as subroutines. When you select prgm, it is pasted to the cursor location. Enter characters to spell a program name. Using prgm is equivalent to selecting existing programs from the PRGM EXEC menu; however, it allows you to enter the name of a program that you have not yet created. prgmname Note: You cannot directly enter the subroutine name when using RCL. You must paste the name from the PRGM EXEC menu. Return Return quits the subroutine and returns execution to the calling program, even if encountered within nested loops. Any loops are ended. An implied Return exists at the end of any program that is called as a subroutine. Within the main program, Return stops execution and returns to the home screen. Stop Stop stops execution of a program and returns to the home screen. Stop is optional at the end of a program. DelVar DelVar deletes from memory the contents of variable. DelVar variable Chapter 16: Programming 287 GraphStyle( GraphStyle( designates the style of the graph to be drawn. function# is the number of the Y= function name in the current graphing mode. graphstyle is a number from 1 to 7 that corresponds to the graph style, as shown below. 1 2 3 4 = Г§ (line) = ГЁ (thick) = Г© (shade above) = ГЄ (shade below) 5 = Г« (path) 6 = Г¬ (animate) 7 = Г (dot) GraphStyle(function#,graphstyle) For example, GraphStyle(1,5) in Func mode sets the graph style for Y1 to Г« (path; 5). Not all graph styles are available in all graphing modes. For a detailed description of each graph style, see the Graph Styles table in Chapter 3.

GetCalc( GetCalc( gets the contents of variable on another TI-84 Plus and stores it to variable on the receiving TI-84 Plus. variable can be a real or complex number, list element, list name, matrix element, matrix name, string, Y= variable, graph database, or picture. Chapter 16: Programming 292 GetCalc(variable[,portflag]) By default, the TI-84 Plus uses the USB port if it is connected. If the USB cable is not connected, it uses the I/O port. If you want to specify either the USB or I/O port, use the following portflag numbers: portflag=0 use USB port if connected; portflag=1 use USB port; portflag=2 use I/O port Note: GetCalc( does not work between TI.82 and TI-83 Plus or a TI.82 and TI-84 Plus calculators. Get(, Send( Get( gets data from the CBL 2в„ў or CBRв„ў and stores it to variable on the receiving TI-84 Plus. variable can be a real number, list element, list name, matrix element, matrix name, string, Y= variable, graph database, or picture. Get(variable) Note: If you transfer a program that references the Get( command to the TI-84 Plus from a TI.82, the TI-84 Plus will interpret it as the Get( described above. Use GetCalc( to get data from another TI-84 Plus. Send( sends the contents of variable to the CBL 2в„ў or CBRв„ў. You cannot use it to send to another TI-84 Plus. variable can be a real number, list element, list name, matrix element, matrix name, string, Y= variable, graph database, or picture. variable can be a list of elements. Send(variable) Note: This program gets sound data and time in seconds from CBL 2в„ў. Note: You can access Get(, Send(, and GetCalc( from the CATALOG to execute them from the home screen (Chapter 15). Calling Other Programs as Subroutines Calling a Program from Another Program On the TI-84 Plus, any stored program can be called from another program as a subroutine. Enter the name of the program to use as a subroutine on a line by itself. You can enter a program name on a command line in either of two ways. вЂў Press п‚Џ | to display the PRGM EXEC menu and select the name of the program prgmname is pasted to the current cursor location on a command line. Chapter 16: Programming 293 вЂў Select prgm from the PRGM CTL menu, and then enter the program name. prgmname When prgmname is encountered during execution, the next command that the program executes is the first command in the second program. It returns to the subsequent command in the first program when it encounters either Return or the implied Return at the end of the second program. Program Output Subroutine ( ' Notes about Calling Programs Variables are global. label used with Goto and Lbl is local to the program where it is located. label in one program is not recognized by another program. You cannot use Goto to branch to a label in another program. Return exits a subroutine and returns to the calling program, even if it is encountered within nested loops. Running an Assembly Language Program You can run programs written for the TI-84 Plus in assembly language. Typically, assembly language programs run much faster and provide greater control than the keystroke programs that you write with the built-in program editor. Note: Because an assembly language program has greater control over the calculator, if your assembly language program has error(s), it may cause your calculator to reset and lose all data, programs, and applications stored in memory. When you download an assembly language program, it is stored among the other programs as a PRGM menu item. You can: вЂў Transmit it using the TI-84 Plus communication link (Chapter 19). вЂў Delete it using the MEM MGMT DEL screen (Chapter 18). To run an assembly Program, the syntax is: Asm(assemblyprgmname) Chapter 16: Programming 294 If you write an assembly language program, use the two instructions below from the CATALOG to identify and compile the program. Instructions Comments AsmComp(prgmASM1, prgmASM2) Compiles an assembly language program written in ASCII and stores the hex version AsmPrgm Identifies an assembly language program; must be entered as the first line of an assembly language program To compile an assembly program that you have written: 1.

Box with Lid Defining a Function Take a 20 cm Г— 25 cm. sheet of paper and cut X Г— X squares from two corners. Cut X Г— 12ВЅ cm rectangles from the other two corners as shown in the diagram below. Fold the paper into a box with a lid. What value of X would give your box the maximum volume V? Use the table and graphs to determine the solution. Chapter 17: Activities 299 Begin by defining a function that describes the volume of the box. From the diagram: 2X + A = 20 2X + 2B = 25 V = AвЂ¦BвЂ¦X Substituting: V = (20 N 2X) (25Г 2 N X) X X 20 A X X B B 25 1.

Chapter 17: Activities 305 Comparing Test Results Using Box Plots Problem An experiment found a significant difference between boys and girls pertaining to their ability to identify objects held in their left hands, which are controlled by the right side of their brains, versus their right hands, which are controlled by the left side of their brains. The TI Graphics team conducted a similar test for adult men and women. The test involved 30 small objects, which participants were not allowed to see. First, they held 15 of the objects one by one in their left hands and guessed what they were. Then they held the other 15 objects one by one in their right hands and guessed what they were. Use box plots to compare visually the correct-guess data from this table. Each row in the table represents the results observed for one subject. Note that 10 women and 12 men were tested. Correct Guesses Women Left Women Right Men Left Men Right 8 4 7 12 9 1 8 6 12 8 7 12 11 12 5 12 10 11 7 7 8 11 8 11 12 13 11 12 7 12 4 8 9 11 10 12 11 12 14 11 13 9 5 9 Procedure 1.

What is the median for the left hand? For the right hand? With which hand were the women more accurate guessers, according to the box plots? 9. Examine the menвЂ™s results. Redefine plot 1 to use MLEFT, redefine plot 2 to use MRGHT. Press r. MenвЂ™s left-hand data MenвЂ™s right-hand data Press | and ~ to examine minX, Q1, Med, Q3, and maxX for each plot. What difference do you see between the plots? 10. Compare the left-hand results. Redefine plot 1 to use WLEFT, redefine plot 2 to use MLEFT, and then press r to examine minX, Q1, Med, Q3, and maxX for each plot. Who were the better left-hand guessers, men or women? 11. Compare the right-hand results. Define plot 1 to use WRGHT, define plot 2 to use MRGHT, and then press r to examine minX, Q1, Med, Q3, and maxX for each plot. Who were the better right-hand guessers? In the original experiment boys did not guess as well with right hands, while girls guessed equally well with either hand. This is not what our box plots show for adults. Do you think that this is because adults have learned to adapt or because our sample was not large enough? Chapter 17: Activities 307 Graphing Piecewise Functions Problem The fine for speeding on a road with a speed limit of 45 kilometers per hour (kph) is 50; plus 5 for each kph from 46 to 55 kph; plus 10 for each kph from 56 to 65 kph; plus 20 for each kph from 66 kph and above.

Archiving and UnArchiving Variables Archiving and UnArchiving Variables Archiving lets you store data, programs, or other variables to the user data archive (ARC) where they cannot be edited or deleted inadvertently. Archiving also allows you to free up RAM for variables that may require additional memory. Archived variables cannot be edited or executed. They can only be seen and unarchived. For example, if you archive list L1, you will see that L1 exists in memory but if you select it and paste the name L1 to the home screen, you wonвЂ™t be able to see its contents or edit it. Note: Not all variables may be archived. Not all archived variables may be unarchived. For example, system variables including r, t, x, y, and q cannot be archived. Apps and Groups always exist in Flash ROM so there is no need to archive them. Groups cannot be unarchived. However, you can ungroup or delete them. Variable Type Names Archive? (yes/no) UnArchive?

Grouping and Ungrouping Variables Grouping Variables Grouping allows you to make a copy of two or more variables residing in RAM and then store them as a group in user data archive. The variables in RAM are not erased. The variables must exist in RAM before they can be grouped. In other words, archived data cannot be included in a group. Once grouped, the variables can be deleted from RAM to open memory. When the variables are needed later, they can be ungrouped for use. To create a group of variables: 1. Press y L to display the MEMORY menu. Chapter 18: Memory and Variable Management 336 2. Select 8:Group to display GROUP UNGROUP menu. 3. Press ГЌ to display the GROUP menu. 4.

Note: Ungrouping does not remove the group from user data archive. You must delete the group in user data archive to remove it. Garbage Collection Garbage Collection Message If you use the user data archive extensively, you may see a Garbage Collect? message. This occurs if you try to archive a variable when there is not enough free contiguous archive memory. Chapter 18: Memory and Variable Management 339 The Garbage Collect? message lets you know an archive will take longer than usual. It also alerts you that the archive will fail if there is not enough memory. The message can also alert you when a program is caught in a loop that repetitively fills the user data archive. Select No to cancel the garbage collection process, and then find and correct the errors in your program. When YES is selected, the TI-84 Plus will attempt to rearrange the archived variables to make additional room. Responding to the Garbage Collection Message вЂў To cancel, select 1:No. вЂў If you select 1:No, the message ERR:ARCHIVE FULL will be displayed. вЂў To continue archiving, select 2:Yes. вЂў If you select 2:Yes, the process message Garbage Collecting... or Defragmenting... will be displayed. Note: The process message Defragmenting... is displayed whenever an application marked for deletion is encountered. Garbage collection may take up to 20 minutes, depending on how much of archive memory has been used to store variables. After garbage collection, depending on how much additional space is freed, the variable may or may not be archived. If not, you can unarchive some variables and try again. Why Is Garbage Collection Necessary? The user data archive is divided into sectors. When you first begin archiving, variables are stored consecutively in sector 1. This continues to the end of the sector. An archived variable is stored in a continuous block within a single sector. Unlike an application stored in user data archive, an archived variable cannot cross a sector boundary. If there is not enough space left in the sector, the next variable is stored at the beginning of the next sector. Typically, this leaves an empty block at the end of the previous sector. variable D Depending on its size, variable D is stored in one of these locations. variable A Sector 1 variable B Empty block variable C Sector 2 Sector 3 Chapter 18: Memory and Variable Management 340 Each variable that you archive is stored in the first empty block large enough to hold it. This process continues to the end of the last sector. Depending on the size of individual variables, the empty blocks may account for a significant amount of space. Garbage collection occurs when the variable you are archiving is larger than any empty block. How Unarchiving a Variable Affects the Process When you unarchive a variable, it is copied to RAM but it is not actually deleted from user data archive memory. Unarchived variables are вЂњmarked for deletion,вЂќ meaning they will be deleted during the next garbage collection. variable A After you unarchive variables B and C, they continue to take up space. Sector 1 Sector 2 variable D Sector 3 If the MEMORY Screen Shows Enough Free Space Even if the MEMORY screen shows enough free space to archive a variable or store an application, you may still get a Garbage Collect? message or an ERR: ARCHIVE FULL message. When you unarchive a variable, the Archive free amount increases immediately, but the space is not actually available until after the next garbage collection. If the Archive free amount shows enough available space for your variable, there probably will be enough space to archive it after garbage collection (depending on the usability of any empty blocks). The Garbage Collection Process The garbage collection process: вЂў Deletes unarchived variables from the user data archive. вЂў Rearranges the remaining variables into consecutive blocks. variable A Sector 1 variable D Sector 2 Chapter 18: Memory and Variable Management 341 Note: Power loss during garbage collection may cause all memory (RAM and Archive) to be deleted. Using the GarbageCollect Command You can reduce the number of automatic garbage collections by periodically optimizing memory. This is done by using the GarbageCollect command. To use the GarbageCollect command, follow these steps. 1. From the HOME screen, press y N to display the CATALOG. 2. Press вЂ or } to scroll the CATALOG until the selection cursor points to the GarbageCollect command or press G to skip to the commands starting with the letter G. 3. Press ГЌ to paste the command to the HOME screen. 4. Press ГЌ to display the Garbage Collect? message. 5. Select 2:Yes to begin garbage collection. Chapter 18: Memory and Variable Management 342 ERR:ARCHIVE FULL Message Even if the MEMORY screen shows enough free space to archive a variable or store an application, you may still get an ERR: ARCHIVE FULL message. An ERR:ARCHIVE FULL message may be displayed: вЂў When there is insufficient space to archive a variable within a continuous block and within a single sector. вЂў When there is insufficient space to store an application within a continuous block of memory. When the message is displayed, it will indicate the largest single space of memory available for storing a variable and an application. To resolve the problem, use the GarbageCollect command to optimize memory. If memory is still insufficient, you must delete variables or applications to increase space.

Some variables are restricted to specific data types. The variables A through Z and q are defined as real or complex numbers. You may store to them. The TI-84 Plus can update X, Y, R, q, and T during graphing, so you may want to avoid using these variables to store nongraphing data. The variables (list names) L1 through L6 are restricted to lists; you cannot store another type of data to them. The variables (matrix names) [A] through [J] are restricted to matrices; you cannot store another type of data to them. The variables Pic1 through Pic9 and Pic0 are restricted to pictures; you cannot store another type of data to them. The variables GDB1 through GDB9 and GDB0 are restricted to graph databases; you cannot store another type of data to them. The variables Str1 through Str9 and Str0 are restricted to strings; you cannot store another type of data to them. Except for system variables, you can store any string of characters, functions, instructions, or variables to the functions Yn, (1 through 9, and 0), XnT/YnT (1 through 6), rn (1 through 6), u(n), v(n), and w(n) directly or through the Y= editor. The validity of the string is determined when the function is evaluated. Archive Variables You can store data, programs or any variable from RAM to user data archive memory where they cannot be edited or deleted inadvertently. Archiving also allows you to free up RAM for variables that may require additional memory. The names of archived variables are preceded by an asterisk (*) indicating they are in user data archive. System Variables The variables below must be real numbers. You may store to them. Since the TI-84 Plus can update some of them, as the result of a ZOOM, for example, you may want to avoid using these variables to store nongraphing data. вЂў Xmin, Xmax, Xscl, @X, XFact, Tstep, PlotStart, nMin, and other window variables.

Your calculator uses an Equation Operating Systemв„ў (EOSв„ў) which evaluates the functions in an expression in the following order: 1. Functions that precede the argument, such as square root, sin(, or log( 2. Functions that are entered after the argument, such as exponents, factorial, r, ВЎ, and conversions 3. Powers and roots, such as 2^5, or 5*square root(32) 4. Permutations (nPr) and combinations (nCr) 5. Multiplication, implied multiplication, and division 6. Addition and subtraction 7. Relational functions, such as > or < 8. Logic operator and 9. Logic operators or and xor Remember that EOSв„ў evaluates from left to right and calculations within parentheses are evaluated first. You should use parentheses where the rules of algebra may not be clear. In OS 2.53 MP, parentheses may be pasted in an expression to indicate how the input is interpreted. If you are using trigonometric functions or performing polar and rectangular conversions, the unexpected results may be caused by an angle mode setting. The Radian and Degree angle mode settings control how the TI-84 Plus interprets angle values. To change the angle mode settings, follow these steps: 1. Press z to display the Mode settings. 2. Select Degree or Radian. 3. Press ГЌ to save the angle mode setting. Appendix B: Reference Information 391 ERR:DIM MISMATCH Error Your TI-84 Plus displays the ERR:DIM MISMATCH error if you are trying to perform an operation that references one or more lists or matrices whose dimensions do not match. For example, multiplying L1*L2, where L1={1,2,3,4,5} and L2={1,2} produces an ERR:DIM MISMATCH error because the number of elements in L1 and L2 do not match. ERR:INVALID DIM Error The ERR:INVALID DIM error message may occur if you are trying to graph a function that does not involve the stat plot features. The error can be corrected by turning off the stat plots. To turn the stat plots off, press y , and then select 4:PlotsOff. Link-Receive L1 (or any file) to Restore Message Your TI-84 Plus displays the Link-Receive L1 (or any file) to Restore message if it has been disabled for testing, and not re-enabled. To restore your calculator to full functionality after testing, link to another TI-84 Plus and transfer any file to the disabled calculator, or use TI Connectв„ў software to download a file from your computer to your TI-84 Plus. To transfer a file from another TI-84 Plus: 1. On the receiving unit, press y 8 and then select RECEIVE. 2. On the sending calculator, Press y 8. 3. Select a file to send by selecting a category, and then selecting a file to send. 4. Select TRANSMIT to send the file. Contrast Feature If the contrast setting is too dark (set to 9) or too dim (set to 0) the unit may appear as if it is malfunctioning or turned off. To adjust the contrast, press and release y, and then press and hold } or вЂ .

Appendix B: Reference Information 393 Error Conditions When the TI-84 Plus detects an error, it returns an error message as a menu title, such as ERR:SYNTAX or ERR:DOMAIN. This table contains each error type, possible causes, and suggestions for correction. The error types listed in this table are each preceded by ERR: on your graphing calculator display. For example, you will see ERR:ARCHIVED as a menu title when your graphing calculator detects an ARCHIVED error type. Error Type Possible Causes and Suggested Remedies ARCHIVED You have attempted to use, edit, or delete an archived variable. For example, the expression dim(L1) produces an error if L1 is archived. ARCHIVE FULL You have attempted to archive a variable and there is not enough space in archive to receive it. ARGUMENT A function or instruction does not have the correct number of arguments. See Appendix A for function and instruction syntax. Appendix A displays the arguments and punctuation needed to execute the function or instruction. For example, stdDev(list[,freqlist]) is a function of the TI-84 Plus. The arguments are shown in italics. The arguments in brackets are optional and you need not type them. You must also be sure to separate multiple arguments with a comma (,). For example, stdDev(list[,freqlist]) might be entered as stdDev(L1) or stdDev(L1,L2) since the frequency list or freqlist is optional. BAD ADDRESS You have attempted to send or receive an application and an error (e.g. electrical interference) has occurred in the transmission. BAD GUESS вЂў In a CALC operation, you specified a Guess that is not between Left Bound and Right Bound. вЂў For the solve( function or the equation solver, you specified a guess that is not between lower and upper. вЂў Your guess and several points around it are undefined. Examine a graph of the function. If the equation has a solution, change the bounds and/or the initial guess. BOUND вЂў In a CALC operation or with Select(, you defined Left Bound > Right Bound. вЂў In fMin(, fMax(, solve(, or the equation solver, you entered lower вЂљ upper. BREAK You pressed the Г‰ key to break execution of a program, to halt a DRAW instruction, or to stop evaluation of an expression. DATA TYPE You entered a value or variable that is the wrong data type. DIM MISMATCH вЂў For a function (including implied multiplication) or an instruction, you entered an argument that is an invalid data type, such as a complex number where a real number is required. See Appendix A and the appropriate chapter. вЂў In an editor, you entered a type that is not allowed, such as a matrix entered as an element in the stat list editor. See the appropriate chapter. вЂў You attempted to store an incorrect data type, such as a matrix, to a list. Your calculator displays the ERR:DIM MISMATCH error if you are trying to perform an operation that references one or more lists or matrices whose dimensions do not match. For example, multiplying L1*L2, where L1={1,2,3,4,5} and L2={1,2} produces an ERR:DIM MISMATCH error because the number of elements in L1 and L2 do not match. Appendix B: Reference Information 394 Error Type Possible Causes and Suggested Remedies DIVIDE BY 0 вЂў You attempted to divide by zero. This error is not returned during graphing. The TI-84 Plus allows for undefined values on a graph. вЂў You attempted a linear regression with a vertical line. вЂў You specified an argument to a function or instruction outside the valid range. This error is not returned during graphing. The TI-84 Plus allows for undefined values on a graph. See Appendix A. вЂў You attempted a logarithmic or power regression with a LX or an exponential or power regression with a LY. вЂў You attempted to compute GPrn( or GInt( with pmt2 < pmt1. DOMAIN DUPLICATE You attempted to create a duplicate group name. Duplicate Name A variable you attempted to transmit cannot be transmitted because a variable with that name already exists in the receiving unit. EXPIRED You have attempted to run an application with a limited trial period which has expired. Error in Xmit вЂў The TI-84 Plus was unable to transmit an item. Check to see that the cable is firmly connected to both units and that the receiving unit is in receive mode. вЂў You pressed Г‰ to break during transmission. вЂў You attempted to perform a backup from a TI.82 to a TI-84 Plus. вЂў You attempted to transfer data (other than L1 through L6) from a TI-84 Plus to a TI.82. вЂў You attempted to transfer L1 through L6 from a TI-84 Plus to a TI.82 without using 5:Lists to TI82 on the LINK SEND menu. ID NOT FOUND This error occurs when the SendID command is executed but the proper graphing calculator ID cannot be found. ILLEGAL NEST вЂў You attempted to use an invalid function in an argument to a function, such as seq( within expression for seq(. INCREMENT вЂў The increment in seq( is 0 or has the wrong sign. This error is not returned during graphing. The TI-84 Plus allows for undefined values on a graph. вЂў The increment in a For( loop is 0. вЂў You attempted to reference a variable or use a function where it is not valid. For example, Yn cannot reference Y, Xmin, @X, or TblStart. вЂў You attempted to reference a variable or function that was transferred from the TI.82 and is not valid for the TI-84 Plus For example, you may have transferred UnN1 to the TI-84 Plus from the TI.82 and then tried to reference it. вЂў In Seq mode, you attempted to graph a phase plot without defining both equations of the phase plot. вЂў In Seq mode, you attempted to graph a recursive sequence without having input the correct number of initial conditions. вЂў In Seq mode, you attempted to reference terms other than (nN1) or (nN2). вЂў You attempted to designate a graph style that is invalid within the current graph mode. вЂў You attempted to use Select( without having selected (turned on) at least one xyLine or scatter plot. INVALID Appendix B: Reference Information 395 Error Type Possible Causes and Suggested Remedies INVALID DIM вЂў The ERR:INVALID DIM error message may occur if you are trying to graph a function that does not involve the stat plot features. The error can be corrected by turning off the stat plots. To turn the stat plots off, press y , and then select 4:PlotsOff. вЂў You specified a list dimension as something other than an integer between 1 and 999. вЂў You specified a matrix dimension as something other than an integer between 1 and 99. вЂў You attempted to invert a matrix that is not square. вЂў The solve( function or the equation solver has exceeded the maximum number of permitted iterations. Examine a graph of the function. If the equation has a solution, change the bounds, or the initial guess, or both. вЂў irr( has exceeded the maximum number of permitted iterations. вЂў When computing Г¦, the maximum number of iterations was exceeded. ITERATIONS LABEL The label in the Goto instruction is not defined with a Lbl instruction in the program. LINK L1 (or any other file) to Restore The calculator has been disabled for testing. To restore full functionality, use TI Connectв„ў software to download a file to your calculator from your computer, or transfer any file to your calculator from another TI-84 Plus. (See the instructions under Important Things to Know about your TI-84 Plus, earlier in this chapter.) MEMORY Memory is insufficient to perform the instruction or function. You must delete items from memory before executing the instruction or function. Recursive problems return this error; for example, graphing the equation Y1=Y1. Branching out of an If/Then, For(, While, or Repeat loop with a Goto also can return this error because the End statement that terminates the loop is never reached. MemoryFull вЂў You are unable to transmit an item because the receiving unitвЂ™s available memory is insufficient. You may skip the item or exit receive mode. вЂў During a memory backup, the receiving unitвЂ™s available memory is insufficient to receive all items in the sending unitвЂ™s memory. A message indicates the number of bytes the sending unit must delete to do the memory backup. Delete items and try again. MODE You attempted to store to a window variable in another graphing mode or to perform an instruction while in the wrong mode; for example, DrawInv in a graphing mode other than Func. NO SIGN CHNG вЂў The solve( function or the equation solver did not detect a sign change. вЂў You attempted to compute Г¦ when FV, (ГљвЂ¦PMT), and PV are all вЂљ 0, or when FV, (ГљвЂ¦PMT), and PV are all _п‚Ѓ 0. вЂў You attempted to compute irr( when neither CFList nor CFO is > 0, or when neither CFList nor CFO is < 0. NONREAL ANS In Real mode, the result of a calculation yielded a complex result. This error is not returned during graphing. The TI-84 Plus allows for undefined values on a graph. OVERFLOW You attempted to enter, or you have calculated, a number that is beyond the range of the graphing calculator. This error is not returned during graphing. The TI-84 Plus allows for undefined values on a graph. Appendix B: Reference Information 396 Error Type Possible Causes and Suggested Remedies RESERVED You attempted to use a system variable inappropriately. See Appendix A. SINGULAR MAT вЂў A singular matrix (determinant = 0) is not valid as the argument for L1. вЂў The SinReg instruction or a polynomial regression generated a singular matrix (determinant = 0) because it could not find a solution, or a solution does not exist. This error is not returned during graphing. The TI-84 Plus allows for undefined values on a graph. SINGULARITY expression in the solve( function or the equation solver contains a singularity (a point at which the function is not defined). Examine a graph of the function. If the equation has a solution, change the bounds or the initial guess or both. STAT You attempted a stat calculation with lists that are not appropriate. вЂў Statistical analyses must have at least two data points. вЂў Med-Med must have at least three points in each partition. вЂў When you use a frequency list, its elements must be вЂљ 0. вЂў (Xmax N Xmin) Г Xscl must beвЂљп‚Ѓ 47 for a histogram. STAT PLOT You attempted to display a graph when a stat plot that uses an undefined list is turned on. SYNTAX The command contains a syntax error. Look for misplaced functions, arguments, parentheses, or commas. Appendix A displays the arguments and punctuation needed to execute the function or instruction. For example, stdDev(list[,freqlist]) is a function of the TI-84 Plus. The arguments are shown in italics. The arguments in brackets are optional and you need not type them. You must also be sure to separate multiple arguments with a comma (,). For example stdDev(list[,freqlist]) might be entered as stdDev(L1) or stdDev(L1,L2) since the frequency list or freqlist is optional. TOL NOT MET You requested a tolerance to which the algorithm cannot return an accurate result. UNDEFINED You referenced a variable that is not currently defined. For example, you referenced a stat variable when there is no current calculation because a list has been edited, or you referenced a variable when the variable is not valid for the current calculation, such as a after Med-Med. VALIDATION Electrical interference caused a link to fail or this graphing calculator is not authorized to run the application. VARIABLE You have tried to archive a variable that cannot be archived or you have tried to unarchive an application or group. Examples of variables that cannot be archived include: вЂў VERSION Real numbers LRESID, R, T, X, Y, Theta, Statistic variables under Vars, STATISTICS menu, Yvars, and the AppIdList. You have attempted to receive an incompatible variable version from another graphing calculator. Appendix B: Reference Information 397 Error Type Possible Causes and Suggested Remedies WINDOW RANGE A problem exists with the window variables. ZOOM вЂў You defined Xmax п‚Ѓ Xmin or Ymax п‚Ѓ Ymin. вЂў You defined qmax п‚Ѓ qmin and qstep > 0 (or vice versa). вЂў You attempted to define Tstep=0. вЂў You defined Tmax п‚Ѓ Tmin and Tstep > 0 (or vice versa). вЂў Window variables are too small or too large to graph correctly. You may have attempted to zoom in or zoom out to a point that exceeds the TI-84 PlusвЂ™s numerical range. вЂў A point or a line, instead of a box, is defined in ZBox. вЂў A ZOOM operation returned a math error. Accuracy Information Computational Accuracy To maximize accuracy, the TI-84 Plus carries more digits internally than it displays. Values are stored in memory using up to 14 digits with a two-digit exponent. вЂў You can store a value in the window variables using up to 10 digits (12 for Xscl, Yscl, Tstep, and qstep). вЂў Displayed values are rounded as specified by the mode setting with a maximum of 10 digits and a two-digit exponent. вЂў RegEQ displays up to 14 digits in Float mode. Using a fixed-decimal setting other than Float causes RegEQ results to be rounded and stored with the specified number of decimal places. Xmin is the center of the leftmost pixel, Xmax is the center of the next-to-the-rightmost pixel. (The rightmost pixel is reserved for the busy indicator.) @X is the distance between the centers of two adjacent pixels. вЂў In Full screen mode, @X is calculated as (Xmax N Xmin) Г 94. In G-T split-screen mode, @X is calculated as (Xmax N Xmin) Г 46. вЂў If you enter a value for @X from the home screen or a program in Full screen mode, Xmax is calculated as Xmin + @X Г‰вЂ¦ 94. In G-T split-screen mode, Xmax is calculated as Xmin + @X Г‰вЂ¦ 46. Ymin is the center of the next-to-the-bottom pixel; Ymax is the center of the top pixel. @Y is the distance between the centers of two adjacent pixels. вЂў In Full screen mode, @Y is calculated as (Ymax N Ymin) Г 62. In Horiz split-screen mode, @Y is calculated as (Ymax N Ymin) Г 30. In G-T split-screen mode, @Y is calculated as (Ymax N Ymin) Г 50. вЂў If you enter a value for @Y from the home screen or a program in Full screen mode, Ymax is calculated as Ymin + @Y Г‰вЂ¦ 62. In Horiz split-screen mode, Ymax is calculated as Ymin + @Y вЂ¦ 30. In G-T split-screen mode, Ymax is calculated as Ymin + @Y Г‰ вЂ¦ 50. Appendix B: Reference Information 398 Cursor coordinates are displayed as eight-character numbers (which may include a negative sign, decimal point, and exponent) when Float mode is selected. X and Y are updated with a maximum accuracy of eight digits. minimum and maximum on the CALCULATE menu are calculated with a tolerance of 1ГўL5; вЂ°f(x)dx is calculated at 1ГўL3. Therefore, the result displayed may not be accurate to all eight displayed digits. For most functions, at least five accurate digits exist. For fMin(, fMax(, and fnInt( on the MATH menu and solve( in the CATALOG, the tolerance can be specified.
