How to Analyze Statistical Data on the TI-84

The TI-84 Plus calculator can perform one- and two-variable statistical data analysis. For one-variable data analysis, the statistical data variable is denoted by [more…]

How to Evaluate Factorials on the TI-84 Plus

Did you know you can type an exclamation point on your TI-84 Plus calculator? Mathematically, the exclamation point is called a factorial. Usually students learn about factorials in pre-algebra and then [more…]

Permutations and Combinations and the TI-84 Plus

You can work permutations and combinations on the TI-84 Plus calculator. A permutation, denoted by nPr, answers the question: “From a set of n different items, how many ways can you select [more…]

How to Use the Binomial Theorem on the TI-84 Plus

In math class, you may be asked to expand binomials, and your TI-84 Plus calculator can help. This isn’t too bad if the binomial is (2x+1)2 = (2x+1)(2x+1) [more…]

How to Generate Random Numbers on the TI-84 Plus

Your TI-84 Plus calculator has a massive amount of digits arranged in a list, called a random number table, that it uses to generate random numbers. [more…]

How to Enter Statistical Data in the TI-84 Plus

What you use to enter statistical data into the TI-84 Plus calculator is the Stat List editor — a relatively large spreadsheet that can accommodate up to 20 columns [more…]

How to Delete and Edit Data on the TI-84 Plus

When you are working with statistical data on your TI-84 Plus calculator, sooner or later, you’ll have to remove or modify the data that you’ve placed in a data list. The following descriptions show you [more…]
