Hi, Math, algebra, statistics, calculus and chemistry all sound terrifying to many students. Understanding how to use technology, such as a graphing calculator, will ease the pain of math courses. Texas Instruments makes a series of graphing calculators including the TI-83 which, according to Texas Instruments, is an easy-to-use calculator that allows students to create graphs, compare functions, and plot and analyze data. (Reference 1)

Graphing
1. Creating graphs on the TI-84 is simple. Enter your data in lists, which can be found under the "STAT" key, then click "EDIT." Once the data is in place, turn on the graph of your choice. You may choose between histogram, bar-graph, line graph, scatter-plot or box and whiskers.
2. Function of an Equation
3. To take graphing a step further, you can enter a function into the "Y=" area. For example, you could enter Y= X+2. This will now graph your data as a function of the equation Y=X+2.

Equation Solver

• According to North Carolina University, the TI-83 has a built-in equation solver which will find the answer to any algebra problem, as long as it is written in this form: "some function=0" (Reference 1).

As many realize, any equation can be rewritten to fit the "some function=0" format. For example if you have X+7=X, you can reformat this to say (X+7)-X=0.

To have the calculator solve this equation click on "MATH" and then "SOLVER" and then "ENTER" and type in the revised formula.

• The potential of a TI-83 goes far beyond the scope of this article. The above features will get anyone started. With more advanced courses and skill levels, there are still more tricks to learn. A quick reference sheet can be found on the Pearson Higher Education website. (Resource 1)

SOURCE: Stat/List Editor Disappeared

download it again cos the stat/list editor is a app, its not permanantly stuck there. it can be downloaded from the TI website

Simple, just check that the lists on the Stat Plot are the same as the ones that you are using.

Hey. I had the exact same problem as you and all I could do was reset the settings to the default settings on the calculator. All you have to do is turn the calculator on, his 2nd (it should say mem right above it). Then click reset then RAM.

### So on my graphing calculator i put my equation x^3-x^2-10x-8. then i hit graph and it says err:invalid DIM.

INVALID DIM error message may occur if you are trying to graph a function that does not involve the stat plot features. The error can be corrected by turning off the stat plots. To turn the stat plots off, press 2nd then stat plot, and then select 4:PlotsOff. By the way it is easy to graphing function y=x^3-x^2-10x-8.

As you can see this function have zero values in the points -2, -1 and 4

### My TI-84 calculator keeps saying "ERR:INVALID DIM" whenever I try to graph a function. I have used many different equations and tried to reset the scales and stuff in the "WINDOW" but it keeps saying the...

One of the statistical plots is turned ON and you must turn OFF all the STAT PLOTS.
To do so
1. Press [2nd][Y=] to access the stat plot configuration.
2. Select [4:PlotsOff]
3. Command PlotsOff echoes on main calculator screen
4. Press [ENTER] to execute it.

### Functions don't work

The presence of the Fat arrows to the left of the Y1, Y2,etc = functions means that the Transfrm application is running. It takes over the graphing from the native OS.
You must uninstall it.
1. Press [APPS] and scroll up to go to the bottom of the list of Applications.
2. Highlight [ : Transfm] and press [ENTER]
3. In the new screen with the heading "Transfm App" press the number that corresponds to uninstalling the Apps [1:Uninstall]
4. Try to graph two simple functions Y1=X and Y2=2X.
5. If these functions are graphed correctly you are back in business, if not turn Stats Plots off.
To turn Stat plots Off
Press [2nd][Y=] (Stat Plot)
Press [4:PlotsOff]
Press [ENTER]

If all else fails, Reset the Ram
Press [2nd][+] (MEM)
Press [7:Reset]
Press [1:All Ram]
Press [2:Reset]
Press [ENTER]
Press [CLEAR] to erase the "Ram Cleared" Message.

### I am trying to graph and i am getting error 13 dimension how can i fix it?

You're probably trying to graph a function that does not involve stat plot features. You can correct this by turning off the stat plot features.

Press GRAPH F1 to enter the equation editor.

Plot1 Plot2 Plot3 on the top line of the equation editor displays the on/off status of each stat plot. When a plot name is highlighted, the plot is on. To toggle the status, press up, left, and right to place the cursor on the name, then press ENTER.
