How to Use Menus on the TI-83 Plus

Most functions and commands you use are found in the menus housed in the TI-83 Plus graphing calculator. Each menu has its own key or key combination. For example, to access the Math menu, press [MATH]; to access the Test menu, press [2nd][MATH]. An example of a menu appears in the first picture, the Math menu.

Some menus, such as the Math menu, contain submenus. This is also illustrated in the first picture. This picture shows that the submenus in the Math menu are MATH, NUM, CPX, and PRB (Math, Number, Complex, and Probability). Repeatedly press
