The TI 83+ and TI 84+ are more than just powerful graphing calculators: they're great platforms for learning to program by creating math and science programs, practical utilities, and even games. The TI-BASIC language is built in even those who know absolutely nothing about computer programming have everything they need to get started. Programming the TI 83+84+ introduces students, teachers, and professionals to programming with the TI-83+ and TI-84+ graphing calculators. This fun, easy-to-read book immediately dives into programming and teaches readers to think like a programmer as they use the TI-BASIC language to design and write their own utilities, games, and math programs. They'll also discover tricks to customize, slim down, and speed up their programs as they unlock the full potential of their calculators. ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY TI-83+84+ calculators are a very powerful, widely-used, and widely-owned tool. Tens of thousands of today's technology professionals got their start in programming or engineering by experimenting with programming their calculators.
