Many calculators have features that are suitable to handle Algebra, mathematical graphs, problem solving and Calculus. Some include features that are unique to engineering students. Very few calculators reach out to students studying science. That is disappointing because many students have to purchase multiple calculators to use in different classes.
The Texas Instruments TI-83-Plus Silver Edition contains features that useful for students studying algebra, calculus, statistics, biology, chemistry, or physics. The TI-83-Plus calculator is the one and only calculator that students will need to meet their requirements while in school.
- · TI-Graph Link for Windows and unit-to-unit cable
- · 1.5MB of memory
- · Store up to 94 applications
- · Split screen to display graph and editor or graph and table
- · Pre-loaded with popular Handheld Software Applications
- · Interactive equation solver
The first thing you will notice about the TI-83-Plus calculator is it sleek design and appearance. Most other calculators carry a very staid black or dark color appearance. The TI-83-Plus stands out from the crowd with the silver casing.
Once you turn on the TI-83-Plus calculator you will be amazed at the wide range of features that it has. It can easily handle a matrix, graphing, or equation solver. For science students there is a pre-programmed periodic table. The mathematic tools are substantial, including viewing equations, graphs, and coordinate simultaneously; advanced statistics and regression analysis, graphical analysis, and data analysis; and tools for engineering, financial, logarithm, trigonometry, and hyperbolic functions.
Texas Instruments has included several applications on the TI-83-Plus calculator. There is a spreadsheet, organizer for phone numbers, puzzle pack, probability simulation, and CBL/CBR applications
The Texas Instruments TI-83-Plus Silver edition calculator has many improvements over the standard TI-83-Plus calculator. The processor is 2.5 times faster, and it has over 1.5 MB of memory – 10 times that of the TI-83 Plus. The improvement in memory makes the TI-83-Plus Silver Edition faster and allows you to store more equations and programs.
The screen on the TI-83-Plus silver edition is very large LCD display that has 64 x 96 pixel resolution. The display can show eight lines of 16 characters each.
A graph link cable can be used to download applications that are specific to different subjects such as physics and geometry. You can use the graph link cable to download applications, games, data and more.
This calculator is also approved to be used on the SAT and ACT college entrance exams.
