Texas Instruments TI-83

  • Display: 8-line by 16-characters
  • Interface: Advanced functions accessed through pull-down display menus
  • Numeric precision: Real and complex numbers calculated to 14-digit accuracy and displayed with 10 digits plus a 2-digit exponent
  • Graphing: Graphs 10 rectangular functions, 6 parametric expressions, 6 polar expressions, and 3 recursively-defined sequences; up to 10 graphing functions defined, saved, graphed, and analyzed at one time; sequence graphing mode shows time series plot, cobweb/ stair-step plot, and phase plots; 7 different graph styles for differentiating the look of each graph drawn; horizontal and vertical split-screen options
  • User-defined list names: Up to 999 elements
  • Interactive analysis: 14 interactive zoom features; function evaluation table shows numeric evaluation of functions in table format; interactive analysis of function values, roots, maximums, minimums, integrals, and derivatives; interactive equation solver editor for solving for different variables in an equation; alphabetical CATALOG of all calculator operations in one menu
  • Matrix operations: Inverse, determinant, transpose, augment, reduced row echelon form, and elementary row operations; convert matrices to lists and vice versa
  • Statistical analysis: List-based one- and two-variable, including logistic, sinusoidal, median-median, linear, logarithmic, exponential, power, quadratic polynomial, cubic polynomial, and quadratic polynomial regression models; 3 statistical plot definitions for scatter plots, xy-line plots, histograms, regular and modified box-and-whisker plots, and normal probability plots; advanced statistic features including 9 hypothesis testing functions, 6 confidence interval functions, and one-way analysis of variance
  • Probability analysis: 15 probability distribution functions including Normal, Student-t, Chi-square, Binomial, and Poisson
  • Business functions: Time-Value-of-Money (TVM), cash flows, and amortization; full screen interactive editor for solving TVM problems
  • Programming memory: 27.3K bytes
  • Interface: Link capabilities for data transfer through I/O port (transfer all data between two TI-83s and from a TI-82 to a TI-83, and lists L1-L6 from a TI-83 to a TI-82); unit-to-unit link cable included; TI-GRAPH LINK (optional accessory) allows information to be transferred to a computer and to be printed or stored to disk; supports optional overhead projectable unit available (same LCD as the TI-82)
  • Compatibility: Supports Calculator-Based Laboratory (CBL) and Calculator-Based Ranger (CBR) Systems to allow analysis of real-world data
