Hide and Delete Objects in Cabri Jr.

You can hide and delete objects in the Cabri Jr. geometry application for the TI-84 Plus graphing calculator. There is a big difference between hiding and deleting an object. If you [more…]

How to Reflect Geometric Objects in Cabri Jr.

Cabri Jr. for the TI-84 Plus calculator allows objects to be reflected in a line or a segment. When a geometric object is reflected in a line, that line acts like a mirror — hence the term “reflection. [more…]

Tile the Plane in GeoMaster on the TI-84 Plus

The Symmetry tool in the TRFM menu on the TI-84 Plus calculator can be used to tessellate (tile) the plane with a geometric figure by rotating that object 180 degrees about a specified point. Unlike the [more…]

Rotate Geometric Objects with the TI-84 Plus

When a geometric object is rotated, it is rotated about a given point through a given angle. To use GeoMaster on the TI-84 Plus graphing calculator to rotate an already constructed geometric object, follow [more…]
