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.

  • Additional Uses
  • 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)

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.

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.

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.

List dimensions


This is a pretty vague problem but not much of a problem. Your actualy plotting device of your stat plot is under your "y=". But before you do that you need to hit the stat button right next to the blue apps button. Then hit edit. These are your stat data1.gif. If you are trying to add data in you should notice what list they are under. (top of the screen L1, L2, ect.) You should also make sure that the number of data adds up for your two list. Now that you have done that you can go to "2nd" then hit "y=". If you don't want to graph your stat plots just make sure they all sat plot... off by hitting enter on the one that says that it is on. Now if you want one on hit enter and make sure your lists from your data match up with your stat plot. You can hit enter and see what one you need. they are above the 1, 2, 3, etc key. Hope this works. If all else fails you can clear your calculator by pressing "2nd", "+", "7", "1", "2". This will turn off all your stat plots if you have trouble understandsing this. But most importnat make sure your L1 and L2 match up on your stat plot with your list under your stat edit. If you don't understand this just i can help you out some more
