How to Graph Functions on the TI-83 Plus

Here’s where your TI-83 Plus calculator draws pretty pictures. After you have entered functions into the TI-83 Plus calculator, you can use the following steps to graph the functions: [more…]

How to Graph Several Functions on the TI-83 Plus

If you’re graphing several functions at once on the TI-83 Plus graphing calculator, it’s not easy to determine which graph each function is responsible for. To help clear this up, the calculator allows [more…]

How to Determine the Accuracy of TI-83 Plus Graphs

The TI-83 Plus graphing calculator can do only what you tell it to do — which doesn’t always produce an accurate graph. The three main causes of inaccurate graphs, and their solutions, are the following [more…]

Piecewise-Defined Functions on the TI-83 Plus

When graphing a piecewise-defined function on the TI-83 Plus graphing calculator, some people cop out and simply graph each of the separate functions that appear in it. But this does not result in an accurate [more…]

How to Graph Trig Functions on the TI-83 Plus

The TI-83 Plus graphing calculator has built-in features especially designed for graphing trigonometric functions. They produce graphs that look like graphs you see in text books; and when you trace these [more…]

View the Function and Graph on the Same TI-83 Plus Screen

If you’re planning to play around with the definition of a function you’re graphing on the TI-83 Plus, it’s quite handy to have both the Y= editor and the graph on the same screen. That way you can edit [more…]

How to Save and Recall a Graph on the TI-83 Plus

If you want a recalled graph to be interactive, you need to save it as a Graph Database on the TI-83 Plus. This way the calculator saves the Graph Mode, Window, Format, and Y [more…]
