    I got a pretty good deal on my TI-83 plus. I found it on the floor on the last day of school two years ago. It doesn't get much better than free. I still don't know how to use it though.
  4. We bought TI-83+'s in high school, but in college we can't use them on tests and things. It's kind of annoying to learn so much about the calculator and then abandon it when you need it the most. It's still very useful for assignments and just learning math stuff. And working with brackets and exponents and stuff if much easier and less time-consuming than on a scientific calc.

    Since I figured out how to use it, my TI has been my best friend.

  11. ya............ countless hours of practicing with my only friend...
  12. i'm sure you didn't have to buy the newest TI calculator out there!

    but i know how you feel...i got the ti-89 titanium as well. it has a really different interface than other TI calcs i have tried before, but once you get the feel for it, you'll see what that machine is capable of, and you can really make a lot of good use to it!
  13. I've done that, but in a whole different context...

  14. hehe ;) i see what you mean :p
