Calculator resources for Math 11, such as links to instructions or programs, may be listed on this page as the quarter progresses.
Calculator Instructions for Matrices on TI83, 83+, 84+ and 86 Calculators
Including instructions for program APIVOT
TI Calc Instructions: Matrix Operations, by Diane Mathios
Instructions are for Row Operations Only for TI-83, 83+, and 86.
Please note that:
For the TI-82 or TI-84+, use the instructions for the TI-83 & 83+.
For a TI-82 or a TI-83 that is not a TI-83+, there is a separate matrix key; matrix is not reached by using the x-1 key.
The TI-85 should work somewhat similarly to the TI-86; consult your calculator's instruction manual
For the TI-89 , you must consult your calculator's instruction manual
Which calculator is best to use for this class?
The instructor will demonstrate the TI-83, 83+, 84 in class. These calculators will be the easiest to learn.
TI-86 is also acceptable, but the instructor not demonstrate it.
The TI-89 is acceptable for use in Math 11 but the TI-89 is NOT recommended. The instructor will not demonstrate or teach in class how to use a TI-89. It is harder to use than the recommended calculators. You will need to be independent and learn how to use it on your own. The instructor has a program that we will use during the quarter that she will download to students' TI 83, 83+, 84, 86 calculators and this program may not be available for the TI-89.
Older models such as the TI-82 and 85 have some of the same functionality as the TI-83,84,86, but may lack some of the required functions or operations. Again, the instructor has a program that we will use during the quarter that she will download to students' TI 83, 83+, 84, 86 calculators and this program may not be available for the TI-82 or TI-85.
The instructor can not help with calculators from other manufacturers, which may not be able to do the work, and can not run the program that will be given to students using the TI-83, 83+, 84, 86
