I recently came across a TI-83 at an ANTIQUE STORE. While this is kind of wrong on kind of a lot of levels, I’m working through it. I never had an 83, but I did have both a TI-82 and a TI-85. I took “special math” and we were required to have graphing calculators, making us a room of super cool dorks. Wow, could our calculators do a lot though!
1.) With the full alphabet available, graphing calculators significantly increased note passing potential via calculator. No more were students limited to 80085 and 0.7734 – the latter upside down.
2.) Tetris. Snake. Low-quality graphics, but still the best thing to do in math class.
3.) Those things were solid puppies, a weapon of self-defense in the plight against milk money thieves.
4.) They add up numbers.
5.) I think they did advanced math and stuff too.
