### How to Trace a Graph on the TI-83 Plus

After you have graphed your function on the TI-83 Plus graphing calculator, you can press [TRACE] and then use the right and left arrow keys to more closely investigate the function.

### Display Functions in a Table on the TI-83 Plus

After you’ve entered the functions in the Y= editor, you can have the TI-83 Plus graphing calculator create a table of functional values. To create a table, perform the following steps:

### View Table and Graph on the Same TI-83 Screen

After you have graphed your functions on the TI-83 Plus graphing calculator, and created a table of functional values, you can view the graph and the table on the same screen. To do so, follow these steps

### Find the Value of a Function on TI-83 Plus

When you trace the graph of a function on the TI-83 Plus graphing calculator, the trace cursor doesn’t hit every point on the graph. So tracing is not a reliable way of finding the value of a function

### Find the Zeroes of a Function on TI-83 Plus

You can use the TI-83 Plus graphing calculator to find the zeroes of a function. The zeros of the function y = f(x) are the solutions to the equation f

### How to Find Max and Min on the TI-83 Plus

You can use the TI-83 Plus graghing calculator to find the maimum and minimum points on a graph, which has many useful applications. For example, the maximum point on the graph of a profit function not

The TI-83 Plus graphing calculator is not equipped to find the derivative of a function. But it is equipped with a numerical routine that evaluates the derivative at a specified value of

### Evaluate a Definite Integral on the TI-83 Plus

You can use the TI-83 Plus graphing calculator to evaluate a definite integral. For example, if the function f(x) is positive for the following value

### Draw Lines and Line Segments on a TI-83 Plus Graph

With the TI-83 Plus graphing calculator, you can draw line segments, horizontal lines, and vertical lines on the graph of functions, parametric equations, polar equations, or sequences. To draw a line

### Draw Circles and Tangents on a TI-83 Plus Graph

The steps for drawing a circle on a graph with the TI-83 Plus graphing calculator are similar to drawing a line segment on the graph. Press [2nd][PRGM]

### Draw Functions on a Graph on the TI-83 Plus

The Draw feature on the TI-83 Plus graphing calculator takes care of many problems for you. You can use it to draw functions on a graph. It will even graph the inverse of a function!
