How to Move Figures with GeoMaster on the TI-84 Plus

When you move an object in GeoMaster on the TI-84 Plus, all other objects associated with that object will also undergo a change. To reshape a polygon or triangle, move one or more of its vertices. To [more…]

Hide and Delete Objects with GeoMaster on the TI-84 Plus

There is a big difference between hiding and deleting an object in GeoMaster on the TI-84 Plus graphing calculator. If you hide an object, you can, if you so choose, bring it back in view at a later time [more…]

Find Length and Distance with GeoMaster

The Distance/Length tool in the MEAS menu in GeoMaster on the TI-84 Plus graphing calculator is used to find the distance between two points, the length of a segment or vector, the circumference of a circle [more…]

Find the Area with GeoMaster on the TI-84 Plus

GeoMaster on the TI-84 Plus graphing calculator can find the area of any circle, triangle, or simple polygon constructed using the Circle, Triangle, Polygon [more…]

Find the Area of a Polygon Having Intersecting Sides

GeoMaster on the TI-84 Plus calculator can help you find the area of a polygon having intersecting sides. To find the area of a polygon having intersecting sides, break the polygon down into simple polygons [more…]

How to Finding the Points of Intersection

When a graph is displayed in Inequality Graphing on the TI-84 Plus calculator, Pol-Trace is one of three options that appear at the bottom of the screen. The [more…]

Probability Simulation Settings Editor on the TI-84 Plus

The Probability Simulation on the TI-84 Plus application contains four simulators (Tossing Coins, Rolling Dice, Picking Marbles form an urn, and Spinning a Spinner) that work much the same way. Some information [more…]

How to Simulate Tossing Coins on the TI-84 Plus

The Probability Simulation application on the TI-84 Plus graphing calculator can simulate tossing from one to three coins at a time. It can even toss weighted coins. When tossing only one coin at a time [more…]

How to Simulate Picking Marbles on the TI-84 Plus

The Probability Simulation application on the TI-84 Plus can simulate picking one marble at a time from an urn that contains from two to five different types [more…]

How to Simulate Spinning Spinners on the TI-84 Plus

The Probability Simulation application on the TI-84 Plus can simulate spinning a spinner that is divided into two to eight sections of equal or unequal areas. It will not simulate the spinner landing on [more…]

How to Simulate Drawing Cards on the TI-84 Plus

The Probability Simulation application on the TI-84 Plus can simulate drawing a card from one to three decks of cards. It even allows you to specify whether or not the card is placed back in the deck before [more…]

Reflect Geometric Objects with the TI-84 Plus

When a geometric object is reflected in a line, that line acts like a mirror — hence the term reflection — so the mirror image of the original object appears on the other side of the line. GeoMaster on [more…]

Dilate Geometric Objects on the TI-84 Plus

The Dilation tool in the in the TRFM menu on the TI-84 Plus is used to increase or decrease the size of an object by a factor of k. When 0 < k < 1, the object decreases in size, and when [more…]

How to Create Accurate Graphs on the TI-84 Plus

The TI-84 Plus graphing calculator can do only what you tell it to do — which doesn’t always produce an accurate graph. Following are the three main causes of inaccurate graphs, and their solutions: [more…]

How to Start and Quit Transformation Graphing

With the Transformation Graphing application that comes preloaded on the TI-84 Plus family of graphing calculators, you can investigate transformations of a graph without leaving the graphing screen. [more…]

How to Graph Transformations on the TI-84 Plus

The Transformation Graphing application on the TI-84 Plus graphing calculator graphs transformations in three different ways called play types: Play-Pause [more…]

How to Create a Slide Show on the TI-84 Plus

A slide show allows you to view the graphs of a sequence of transformations of a function. Each picture in the slide show displays one transformation, and you can run your slides in slow or fast motion [more…]

Rotate Geometric Objects in Cabri Jr. on the TI-84 Plus

You can rotate geometric objects in the Cabri Jr. application on the TI-84 Plus calculator. When a geometric object is rotated, it is rotated about a given point through a given angle. To rotate an already [more…]

Dilate Geometric Objects in Cabri Jr. on the TI-84 Plus

You can dilate geometric objects in the Cabri Jr. geometry application for the TI-84 Plus calculator. The Dilation tool in the in the F4 Transformation [more…]

How to Create Files in Cabri Jr. on the TI-84 Plus

Some people like to just clear the TI-84 Plus screen of their old work and then start creating their new geometric constructions. Even if you are that sort, you should start fresh by creating a new file [more…]

How to Save Files in Cabri Jr. on the TI-84 Plus

After creating geometric figures in the Cabri Jr. geometry application on the TI-84 plus calculator, you can save your work to a file using either the [more…]

How to Use Cabri Jr. Menus on the TI-84 Plus

The Cabri Jr. geometry application on the TI-84 Plus has five menus that are accessed by pressing the Graphing keys ([Y=], [WINDOW], [ZOOM], [TRACE], and [more…]

Construct Circles in Cabri Jr. on the TI-84 Plus

You can use the Cabri Jr. geometry application on the TI-84 Plus to construct circles. A circle is determined by entering its center and its radius. To construct a circle, follow these steps: [more…]

Construct Triangles and Quadrilaterals in Cabri Jr.

Three points determine a triangle and four points determine a quadrilateral. So the construction of each is quite similar. To construct a triangle or quadrilateral in the Cabri Jr. geometry application [more…]

Construct Perpendicular and Parallel Lines in Cabri Jr.

You can construct perpendicular or parallel lines in the Cabri Jr. geometry application on the TI-84 Plus calculator. To construct such lines, you have to start with an already constructed line, segment [more…]
