Plot TwoVariable Data on the TI83 Plus
You can use the TI83 Plus graphing calculator to plot twovariable data. The most common plots used to graph twovariable data sets are the scatter plot and the xyline plot. The scatter plot plots the points (x, y) where x is a value from one data list (Xlist) and y is the corresponding value from the other data list (Ylist).
The xyline plot is simply a scatter plot with consecutive points joined by a straight line.
To construct a scatter or xyline plot, follow these steps:

Store your data in the calculator.
Your data does not have to appear in the Stat List editor to plot it, but it does have to be in the memory of the calculator.

Turn off any Stat Plots or functions in the Y= editor that you don’t want to be graphed along with your histogram.
To do so, press [Y=] to access the Y= editor. The calculator graphs any highlighted Plots in the first line of this editor. To unhighlight a Plot so it won’t be graphed, use the
keys to place the cursor on the on the Plot and then press [ENTER] to toggle the Plot between highlighted and unhighlighted.
The calculator graphs only those functions in the Y= editor defined by a highlighted equal sign. To unhighlight an equal sign, use the
keys to place the cursor on the equal sign in the definition of the function, and then press [ENTER] to toggle the equal sign between highlighted and unhighlighted.

Press [2nd][Y=] to access the Stat Plots menu and enter the number (1, 2, or 3) of the plot you want to define.

Highlight On or Off.
If On is highlighted, the calculator plots your data. If you want your data to be plotted at a later time, highlight Off. To highlight an option, use the
keys to place the cursor on the option, and then press [ENTER].

Press
Use
to place the cursor on the type of plot you want to create, and then press [ENTER] to highlight it.
Select the scatter plot or xyline icon.

Press
enter the name of your data list (Xlist), and press [ENTER].
If your data is stored in one of the default lists L_{1} through L_{6}, press [2nd], key in the number of the list, and then press [ENTER]. For example, press [2nd][1] if your data is stored in L_{1}.
If your data is stored in a usernamed list, key in the name of the list and press [ENTER] when you’re finished. Notice that the calculator is already in Alpha mode, waiting for the first letter in the name of your list.

Enter the name of your Ylist and press [ENTER].

Choose the type of mark used to plot points.
You have three choices: a small square, a small plus sign, or a dot. To select one, use
to place the cursor on the mark and then press [ENTER].

Press [ZOOM][9] to plot your data using the ZoomStat command.
ZoomStat finds an appropriate viewing window for plotting your data.
