SOURCE: graphing

The first solution will allow you to watch your calculator graph two equations simultaneously rather than finishing one before graphing the next; it won't solve the problem of having the calculator unselect one equation when you select a second. To fix that problem, try the following:


In order to select additional graphs, the Transformation Graphing App will need to be uninstalled from the TI-83 Plus Family and TI-84 Plus Family. Uninstalling the App does not erase it from the calculator, it disables it from interfering with the normal graphing modes. Below are the steps to successfully uninstall the App.

  • Press [APPS] key
  • Select Transfrm from the menu
  • Press 1:Uninstall

SOURCE: My calculator will only graph one graph at a time.

This is simple... Back up all RAM, (press second+, then 2, then 1, press enter to back up something if backed up it will have a star by it) Then clear your RAM (pull out your batteries while the calc is still on or press second+, then 7, then 1)
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: The calculator is only graphing a half circle when

A circle is not a function and cannot be graphed in the regular y=screen. You can graph a circle in parametric mode.

To graph a circle in the regular y= screen, you have to graph it in 2 lines on the y= screen. I assume you've solved for y and gotten a square root equation. Remember a square root can be positive or negative. In line 1 of y= screen graph what you've been graphing and then graph the same equation in line 2 but with a negative in front of the equation. You'll get something that looks like an oval since the calculator screen is rectanglular. To make it look more circular (both parts aren't going to connect), press zoom and then select #5 (square).

How to predict using linear model


If you have the equation of the line (of best fit), enter a value of x in the equation to get the value of y. Similarly, if you have a target value of y, enter it in the equation and solve for the value of x. That's about it.

I am trying to do a project and i need to find the sine regression on the TI-84 PLus Silver Edition calculator. Can you please tell me how to do that?


Here is a copy on an earlier post I made detailing how to do a regression on a TI8x Plus families of calculators. In the post I took a quadratic regression, but that should not be a problem for you to use the same techniques. Just, when you reach the point where you select the regression model, select SinReg.
If you follow the instructions you should be able to get the scatter plot and the best-fit curve on the same graph. If you do get an error check your data and blame not the method I will show you because it is sound.

Here it goes
Your question is a very interesting one and I believe people will benefit from a complete solution to it. So I will provide a solution for a quadratic regression.
The points I will represent are those on a parabola
L1= {0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10}
L2={0,1,4,9,16,25,36,49,64,81,100}
As you can see, I am cheating (no experimental points will fit a perfect parabola) but this will have no incidence on what I am going to show you.

1. PREPARE THE GRAPH FORMAT (you will see why latter)
With the calculator turned On, press [2nd][ZOOM] to access the (FORMAT) screen. Notice that RectGC is highlighted. It means that the coordinates are rectangular. IF the POLARGC had been highlighted and you had used the TRACE function the values of the coordinates of the points being traced would be in the form (R, theta), in other words polar coordinates.
8b83b2e.jpg
2. ENTER THE DATA

Press STAT, then under the EDIT menu press [1:Edit]
57b097c.jpg
to open the list editing screen. Enter the elements of the two lists
d10bb96.jpg
After you enter the data in L1 and L1, Press [2nd][Y=] to open the (STAT PLOT)

3. CONFIGURE THE STAT PLOT TYPE

Initially the Plot1 may be OFF. Make sure at the beginning that all Stat Plots are OFF. If necessary press [4:PlotsOff] execute the command in Main calculator screen and press [2nd][Y=1] to get back at the stat plot screen configuration below
d653a12.jpg
Press 1:Plot1 Off to open the P1 configuration
The cursor will be blinking on On. If not use cursor to highlight ON and press [ENTER]. The cursor will move to second line (TYPE), on first icon. Since you want to do a scatter PLOT that is the one to choose. Highlight it and press ENTER then move cursor with Down arrow to move to Xlist
If your data is in L1 and L2 Xlist and Ylist will be already selected. If you have entered your data in some other lists, enter the proper lists (L3,L4, etc.)

Now you can press the [GRAPH] function key. Here is what you get

PERFORMING A REGRESSION

Because I chose it so, we will perform a quadratic regression QuadReg
To do so you press [STAT] and use right arrow to select the CALC(ulate) Menu. Type 5:QuadReg

b12881c.jpga7fbc6b.jpg
Command echoes on Main screen as QuadReg with blinking cursor as above on the right.

If you press [ENTER] the calculator will assign L1 to X and L2 to Y by default. If that does not correspond to the problem, you had better change the names of the lists used by entering then explicitly on the command line. Just press [2nd][L1] then [2nd] [L2] to get the following screen
30d1079.jpg
Pressing [ENTER] to execute the command will get you the regression equation and its coefficients but you will not be able to have it graphed on the scatter plot

e380d1f.jpg
Thus to be able to draw the regression curve on the scatter plot, you must save it to a function variable, Y1 for example. You do it with the following command line
0b6bc57.jpg
After you press ENTER you obtain the equation, a,b,c, and R2. By pressing the [GRAPH] function key you get the raw data and the regression on the same screen.

3e957b3.jpg
As you can see both are represented

TRACING THE REGRESSION CURVE
Press Trace and see what you get
e481e00.jpg

As you can see the trace defaults to the scatter plot P1, L1,L2 (see the top left). If you stay on that graph you will on ly trace the actual data points (raw data). The cursor will jump from one point to the next.
To trace the regression curve (the second curve) you must move cursor on it. To do so press the Up and Down arrows. Left and right arrows allow cursor to move along the same curve.
Pressing Down Arrow you move to the regression curve. Notice the equation on the top left corner. The cursor can be displaced anywhere (depending on the resolution of the graph.

Enter an X value. How about 5.55555?
  • bc62328.jpg

7fd58d3.jpg
If as I have suggested above, you copied the regression equation to Y1 variable, you can calculate Y-values for any X in the graph domain.

In Main calculator screen type the numerical value of X, say 4.777756, and store it in X-variable

4.777756 [STO>] [X,T,theta,n] [ENTER]

Calculator answers Done

Press [VARS][>][Y-VARS][1:Function...][1:Y1] [ENTER]

The calculator computes the value of Y1 for the entered value of X.
You can also generate a whole table, but you will have less control over the points where Y1 will be calculated.

How do i find the line of best fit on my TI-84 plus addition?


Here is a complete solution that shows you how to find the equation for the best curve fitting, how to draw that equation on the same screen as the scatter plot and also how to do interpolation or the best fit curve. The post may seem long for an impatient reader but it leaves no stone unturned. Please DO READ it till the end.

The data points used are for a parabola (QuadReg) but you can easily adapt it

The points I will represent are those on a parabola (squares of all integer numbers from 0 to 10). Substitute your own values in L1 and L2

L1= {0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10}
L2={0,1,4,9,16,25,36,49,64,81,100}

Part A shows you how to enter your data and calculate some statistical values.

PART A
In the main menu select [STAT] icon to enter Stat mode and display the statistical data lists. Use the satistical data lists to input data and perform statistical calculations. Use the arrows to move the highlighting around the lists.
Exemple: Enter the following values in List 1
1st line enter 90 [EXE]
2nd line 85 [EXE]
3 79 [EXE]
4 75 [EXE]
5 70 [EXE]
6 68 [EXE]
7 56 [EXE]

When finished you press [F2:Calc], then [F1:1Var] and the statistical results appear on screen.
Title of screen : 1-Variable
x bar =74.7142857
Capital Sigma x= 523
Capita Sigma X squared = 39851
x lower case sigma n = 10.5249945
x lower case sigma n-1= 11.3682934
n = 7
Scroll down with Down arrow to access other data
minX =56
Q1=68
Med =75
Q3=85
Xbar -x lower case sigma n =64.1892911
x bar + x lower case sigma n = 85.2392802
maxX=90
Mod=90

All you have to do now, is to look at the theory you learned and interpret what these values mean.


PART B
  1. Once you enter your data [MENU][STAT],
  2. press [F1:Graph],
  3. select Gph1, Gph2, or Gph3.
  4. Once the graph of the experimental data is drawn, you will have access to the diverse regression models.
  5. Your choices are
  • [X:Linear]
  • [Med-Med],
  • [Quadratic :X^2]
  • [Cubic;X^3]
  • [Quartic: X^2].
  • Press [F6] to scroll right to access the others:
  • [Logarithmic:LOG],
  • [Exponential :EXP],
  • [Power :Pwr] and
  • [Sinusoidal:Sin]
  1. After you select a model and press [EXE], the screen displays the equation and its various coefficients.
  2. On that same screen, you have a menu option [F6:Draw].
  3. If you select it, the regression curve will be drawn on the same screen as your statistical graph.
  4. This allows you to judge if the fit is good. If it is not, you have the option to choose another model.
  5. The other option [F5:Copy] allows you to save the regression equation in the Y1, Y2, etc. variables.

Press F1:define to configure Plot1. Choose Scatter, then choose a mark for the data point. I select 5:Dot. and press [ENTER

Select the data column X=c1, Y=c2

Press ENTER to save configuration. Press [CTRL] [GRAPH] On my TI92 the CTRL key is the [Diamond] key. On the following graph I changed the mark to a cross to see the data point better. I also played with the window dimension. You can also do that with ZoomStat. Th graph remind me of a parabola (I know I chose the exact values)

Now we have to find the equation that fits these data best.
You press APPS 6:Data/ Matrix editor but you select current to return to your data set. You are taken to the data entry editor (Figure 3 above). In that screen Press F5:Calc to edit the type of statistics you want
On first line select QuadReg quadratic regression, X is from column1, Y is from column 2. Store RegEQ The regression equation in say Y1(x)

Press ENTER to save to get the Regression Equatio. Here it is
As you can see I cheated: a perfect parabola. R^2 =1.

And here the best fit represented on same graph as the satistical data

Usually you have to try different regression models, until you find the one that fits best the experimental data.
As you can see I have gone a long way out of my way to show you all the steps.
I hope it helps you and others who wonder how to do regressions on a TI89. If someone does not understand these explanations, the blame does not rest with me.

Hello,
Sorry if you already know that, but I want to make sure we understand one another.

Say you want to graph the function Y1=2X+3.
You press [MODE] to make sure that the FUNC on 4th line is highlighted permanently. If it is you press [Y=]

On the first line where it says Y1= you enter 2*[X,T,Theta,n] +3.
The X is accessed with the key to the right of the [ALPHA] key.
As you key in your function, notice that the equal sign after Y1 is highlighted and remains so. When you finish entering the function press [ENTER] so that the cursor moves to the line Y2=. Make sure that the = sign after the Y1 in previous equation remains highlighted.

You can now draw the graph by pressing [GRAPH] or generate the table Y1=f(X) by pressing [2nd][TABLE]. Under no conditions should you enter YOUR own values. If the table does not appear there may be a problem, and you will not solve it by entering values.

Now let us try to get you calculator to work as it should.

Press [2nd][STATPLOT][4:PlotsOff] , the command PlotsOff echoes on main screen. Press [ENTER] to turn statistical plots OFF. Screen displays Done.
Press [2nd][CATALOG] [ENTER]. The list of all avilable command appears. Scroll down till you reach ClrAllLists. Move arrow to the correspondig line and press [ENTER] , command echoes on main screen as ClrAllLists. Press [ENTER] to erase all old statistical lists that may be stored in the calculator memory.

Now you are ready to graph or create the table of values. Press [2nd][Table] and the table should be displayed. All you can do with the values in the table is to look at them, examine them. You cannot modifie nor erase them.

If, for reasons of your own, you think you ought to be allowed to enter YOUR values, in the table, then this is not graphing functions. The name for that is DOING STATISTICS. And the procedure is tottaly different: You enter YOUR values in lists and use the calculator to draw the data points, and to find the best fit (the curve that models the pattern of data distribution best). When you decide which fit is the best, you can use the calculator to extract the equation for the curve and, if you want it, to draw the curve on the same graph where you raw data is represented.
Hope these clarifications helps.
