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

After you have graphed your parametric equations and created a table for the parametric equations, you can view the graph and the table on the same TI-83 Plus calculator screen. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Press [MODE].

  2. Put the calculator in G-T screen mode.

    To do so, use the

  3. Press [GRAPH].

    After you press [GRAPH], the graph and the table appear on the same screen.

If you press any key used in graphing parametric equations, such as [ZOOM] or [TRACE], the cursor will become active on the graph side of the screen. To return the cursor to the table, press [2nd][GRAPH].

If you press [TRACE] and then use the

keys to trace the graph, the value of the independent variable T corresponding to the cursor location on the graph will be highlighted in the table and the columns for the parametric equations you’re tracing will appear next to it. If necessary, the calculator will update the table so you can see that row in the table.
