TI-84 Plus Graphing Calculator For Dummies was written by C.C. Edwards, author of TI-83 Plus Graphing Calculator For Dummies, who has a Ph.D. in mathematics and teaches on the undergraduate and graduate levels. The book doesn’t delve into high math, but it does use appropriate math examples to help you delve into:

  • Using the Equation Solver
  • Using GeoMaster and its menu bar to construct lines, segments, rays, vectors, circles, polygons, perpendicular and parallel lines, and more
  • Creating a slide show of transformations of a graph
  • Using the Inequality Graphing application to enter and graph inequalities and solve linear programming problems

There’s even a handy tear-out cheat sheet to remind you of important keystrokes and special menus, And since you’ll quickly get comfortable with the built-in applications, there’s a list of ten more you can download and install on your calculator so it can do even more! TI-84 Plus Graphing Calculator For Dummies is full of ways to increase the value of your TI–84 Plus exponentially.
