    TI-83+ BASIC Tutorial

    For anyone who has a TI-83 Plus and is interested in making simple programs:

    (Note: This tutorial will not explain TI-BASIC in detail yet give those who have never used it a whiff of the programming.If you like the concept of calc. programming, I have provided a few links with more in-depth tutorials at the bottom.)

    How to turn on the TI-83+:
    Basically, if you don't know how to do this, you are a complete idiot.
    (Note: My batteries just ran out on my calc, so my commands may not be excatly typed and spelled correctly, but your smart so you can figure it out)
    Anyway,

    To start a new program:
    1. Push PRGM
    2. press the left arrow key once and press enter
    3.type in the name of your program, in this case type "Hello"
    (Note: When I say "type ____" DO NOT TYPE THE PARANTHESES!, I swear, i get emails asking why their program won't work. I tell them they weren't supposed to type " ". The replys i get are: "oh, thanx")
    4.Press PRGM again
    5.Press the right arrow once
    6. select the command that says "clearhome" or "clrhome", something like that.
    -this command clears the home screen when you execute the program
    (note: okay, basically i am going to assume you know that most of the commands you will use in the calc. are going to be under the prgm button. plus, i am lazy and don't feel like holding your hand today)
    7.select the disp. command
    8. type "Hello"
    - the screen should look like: DISP "HELLO"
    9.select the pause command
    10. run the program
    - the screen should be cleared and "HELLO" should be displayed on your screen and will wait for you to press enter.

    If you liked this tutorial here are some good links to continue programming:
    TI-CALC
    Heres another

    There was another called kevtiva.com/calc but i don't believe it works anymore.
    More TI-BASIC tutorials to come, sorry this one was brief, but i gotta do homework.
    I read somewhere you shouldn\'t always believe what you read so what the Hell am I supposed to do?

    I got the TI-83+ SE and it didn't come with a manual. So, I downloaded the manual from TI's web site. Chapter 16 has some material on programming in TI-BASIC. I've attached it if anyone is interested. I like programming in Z80 Assembly better, though. You can get a good tut on that from TI's web site. Some other resources:

    http://www.ticalc.org/: a great programming site for the calculator (mostly ASM)
    http://education.ti.com/: TI's web site, you have to search a lot to find any good stuff.
    http://www.calc.org/: another calculator programming site
    http://www.zilog.com/: Download an assembler for the calculator here

    I have one of those, for what it cost me, i would have thought we would have used it more.

    Anyways, i would just like to suggest that you can use programs that you download to write the code etc and then tranfer it to your Calculator. if i remember the link i will let you know,

    its just easier using a keyboard than the keys on the calc

    I think you are thinking of the GraphLink program that comes with the SE. I haven't found a version that you can download, but please tell me if you do. I know what you mean, I bought one for school, but they have their own that you can use in class. I mostly use TI's emulator to do graphing anyhow (you can download it at http://epsstore.ti.com/ ), making my SE a $124 paperweight!

    At my local wal-mart it cost some $15, and if that's to expensive for you http://www.ticalc.org/ has instructions on how to build your own
