Have any of you had any experience programming these darn things...

Looking throught websites i am pretty sure it uses BASIC but I am not sure...

Does anyone have a good websites so I program this think to do my math exam for me :thumbsup:

Yeah, i've had some experience putting programs on there. I've done a lot of programs to help me calculate things like magnetic field, energy field, logarithms, etc. I also wrote a lot of games like solitaire, poker, and blackjack.... they're really basic, but they keep me entertained. If you want to see something really cool, open a new program and call it "WAVES", then:

:ClrHome:ClrDraw
:Lbl 1
:Disp "VUOUVYTYVUOUVYTY"
:Disp "UOUVYTYVUOUVYTYV"
:Disp "OUVYTYVUOUVYTYVU"
:Disp "UVYTYVUOUVYTYVUO"
:Disp "VYTYVUOUVYTYVUOU"
:Disp "YTYVUOUVYTYVUOUV"
:Disp "TYVUOUVYTYVUOUVY"
:Disp "YVUOUVYTYVUOUVYT"
:Goto 1
To make it clear, the pattern above is V U O U V Y T Y repeated, but it sort of "cycles through" the letters. Put that in your TI-83, then execute, and you have a cool thing to watch for a while :thumbsup:

Thanks I will take a look at those sites.

Thanks that should keep me enternainted for a few hours during study period :thumbsup:

As for math we are doing Algebra but I also use this calculator in physics class (I can write my notes into it :flowers:)

I know exactly how you feel klink.

You can open up a new program and call it "physics" or something, or open up the graph, turn the axes off, and use the DRAW TEXT ability to write notes and formulas. I have like 6 pictures saved of important formulas and relations for my physics 208 class :thumbsup:

Hehe, ah yes! Where my programming years first began!

I've done a lot of programs to help me calculate things like magnetic field, energy field, logarithms, etc. I also wrote a lot of games like solitaire, poker, and blackjack.... they're really basic, but they keep me entertained. If you want to see something really cool, open a new program and call it "WAVES", then:


http://yanowhiz.googlepages.com/programs

Almost all the programs found on that one there first started out on my TI-83. :thumbsup:

This program provides with an easy to use interface for computing: the circumference and area of a circle from on the radius, the sine, consine, and tangent of any degree or angle, the exact date for Easter with only the year number inputed by the user, compute if a year is a leap year or not, compute the surface area and volume of any N-gon regular prism, compute the surface area and volume of any N-gon base regular pyramid, compute the volume and surface area of a sphere.

Here is a sample of a program I have on my TI-83.

PROGRAM:CYLINDER
:DISP "ENTER RADIUS":DISP "AND HEIGHT"
:Prompt R,H
:#*R^2*H.V
:2*#*R*H>B
:R^2*2*#>E
:B+E>A
:DISP "VOLUME":DISP V
:DISP "TOTAL SA":DISP A

The # sign represents pi., and the > represents the arrow or (store) button. Simply put this program outputs the Volume and Total Surface Area with only the Radius and Height required for a cylinder. I got my TI-83 and I might create a page on my website with some programs.
