The Texas Instruments TI-83 is a graphing calculator. It's aimed towards math and science students and lets them graph and compare functions, perform data plotting and perform analysis. It has an updateable memory for adding software applications. The device comes pre-loaded with applications too. An optional connectivity kit allows you to hook the device up to your computer, and there are also optional slide cases to protect it.

  • Turn on the TI-83. Press the On button.
  • Step 2Adjust the display contrast. Press and release the key marked "2nd" and then press and hold the arrow buttons, which are below and above the yellow half-shaded circle.
  • Step 3Go to the Home Screen. You can do this from anywhere. Just press the button marked 2nd and then Quit.
  • Step 4Perform a sample calculation to get the hang of how to use the device: Model flipping a coin 10 times. Track how many of those coin flips end up in a heads result and you want to do this simulation ten times. Press Math and the left arrow which will bring up the MATH PRB menu.

    • Press 7 to choose 7:randBin, which stands for random binomial. "RandBin" will appear on the screen.


    • Step 6Press 10 to enter the number of coin flips. Press the comma button and then point five. .5 is the probability. Again press comma and point and 40 for the number of simulations. Press the close parentheses symbol.


    • Step 7Press Enter. The expression will be evaluated. Forty elements will be displayed. You'll see that the coin came heads five times in the first set of 10 flips, and then five in the second set. This matches our probability of .5 used.


    • Step 8Play around with the calculator a bit more and run through some more examples. Use the manual to learn more about the other features of the calculator.

    Most likely that the batteries are drained (depleted). Change the MAIN batteries (AAA), then chnage the backup battery. Avoid letting the calculator go with main and backup batteries removed.

    I have ti-83 plus silver edition when i trun it on all it say is that ti-83 plus silver edition 1.14 RAM cleared so when i click enter it trun off


    The most likely cause is that the batteries are depleted, the main ones and the backup battery. Replace with fresh ones. In so doing you may have to readjust contrast.

    To adjust the contrast.
    Press [2nd] key and release it.
    Press and Hold the UPArrow to increase contrast or DownArrow to lighten the screen.

    In the message you reported, I notice that your OS is old. The latest version is the 1.19. You might see fit to update the OS. You can use the TIConnect software, downloadable from education.ti.com.

    Install the TI Connect on your computer. Connect the calculator to the computer (after you install TI Connect) with th TI USB Silverlink Cable.
    Run TI Connect and if you are connected to the Internet, click the Updates button in TI Connect.

    Hello,
    Well, if screen shows the RAM CLEARED message, that means your calculator is working. Just press the [CLEAR] key, message will be erased and you are ready to crunch numbers.

    Every time I turn on the calculator "Ram cleared" comes up. How do I stop this?


    Hello,
    It is possible that the backup battery is drained. If you change it, make sure that the main batteries are good. Do not remove main batteries while changing the backup battery.
    Hope it helps.

    TI-83 Plus Silver Edition problem


    These instructions are from education.ti.org, and worked for me.

    1) Take out one of the AAA batteries
    2) Hold down the CLEAR button
    3) Put the AAA battery back in while still holding down the CLEAR button
    4) Let go of the CLEAR button and turn the calculator ON
    5) Press CLEAR to get rid of the error message.

    Then you should be good! All the applications on my calculator were still intact, so despite the error message, the RAM was never actually cleared.

    TI calculators have an annoying habit of dimming the screen when the batteries are changed so that it appears as if the calculator isn't turning on. Turn the calculator on (or at least press the ON key). Press and release the 2ND key. Press and hold the Up-arrow key for a few seconds and see whether the screen becomes legible.
