CALCULATOR REQUIRED: Cost approx $100, if new REQUIRED MODELS: TI-83, TI-83+, or TI-84+ come with the applications needed. The instructor will teach/demonstrate with these calculators in class. The textbook and chapter notes provide instructions.
Many students already own one of these models from a previous math class. IF YOU ALREADY OWN a TI-89: To use a TI-89, you need to be independent about learning to use it ON YOUR OWN. It needs the Statistics List Editor. If your TI-89 does not have the Statistics List Editor, it is your responsibility to download it and any necessary operating system upgrade directly from the TI website using the appropriate cable that came with your calculator. Instructor can not download it to your calculator. The instructor will not demonstrate the TI-89 in class and will only help you with it during office hours, not in class. The textbook and chapter notes does not provide TI-89 instructions. A special set of instructions for using the TI-89 for statistics is provided online as a printable pdf file.
Calculators other than the TI-83+,84+ (or 89 as noted above) are not supported by the instructor or instructional materials and may not be able to do all the work necessary in the class. ABOUT THIS WEBSITE: This website contains support many materials for this class. The materials may be revised as the quarter progresses. Some links may not be working while material is being revised. Materials on this site can be reached through the main Catalyst website for this class; students should rely on the Catalyst website for the most complete and up to date information and resources.
