Giveaway: Go Back to School with Texas Instruments
The winner is A Bookworm’s Diary.
I was approached to do a review on the Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus Silver Edition Graphic Scientific Calculator and all I can say is . . . wow!
Okay, maybe a little more than wow.
I don’t remember having anything like this when I was in high school. But then again, high was a really long time ago for me. Even so, I found the TI-84 very user friendly once you read the manual and the buttons on the device large enough for easy navigation.
Apparently, this is an upgrade from the TI-83 (which some think is the best selling calculator of all time) in which they’ve added a periodic table, more Algebra and Geometry software, an enhanced high-contrast display, changeable faceplates, runs 2.5 times faster and has 9 times the memory. There’s also 1,000 SAT and ACT test prep questions preloaded on this nifty device.
What’s really cool is the way the split screen allows you to view the graph and the equation at the same time!
The TI-84 seems to be geared more towards students taking Algebra II or higher math classes as well as any science course that requires graphing. It is a little costly ($120), however, it is upgradeable so it is able to grow with your child.
The Texas Instruments TI-84 Silver Edition Graphing Calculator is a great addition to any teenager’s school supplies
