Question about Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus Silver Edition Graphic Calculator

1 Answer

LinReg gives wrong results

I teach high school physics, and students are graping and conducting a LinReg for a set of data stored in lists (e.g. LinReg L3, L2, Y1).

No problem with this, it works great, but one student was getting different values for a, b, r2, r. I checked her lists, and they were all correct. I even tried re-entering all the data, but still got the same results.

I finally cleared the RAM ([MEM] RESET ... All RAM, and now we are getting the right answer.

Any ideas of what might have been wrong?

Thanks.

    PS. This was on a TI 84 Silver Edition, but the students who were getting the right answers were using a variety of 83/84s.

I would suggest that you use you local paper and contact you area School AEA. They can post your information for parents needing tutors. Also contact your local colleges, Libraries and learning centers in your area. You will find more help in getting your name out those these outlets than advertising itself. Not to mention you will have a safer clientele dealing with schools and learning center.
Also you can post free on craigslist.org

I am trying to drive a prediction equation. but the book gives directions to aTI-84 and I have a TI-89. I have these steps "STAT, EDIT, L1, L2,STAT, CALC,LinReg(ax+b), ENTER" I have no clue how to make...


I assume you know how to enter data in your calculator. The keystrokes in the following pertain to TI92/92Plus/ Voyage 200 PLT. The main differences with the TI89/Ti89 Titanium is that the function keys F6,F7,F8 are not accessed directly but by the key sequences [2nd][F1], [2nd][F2], and [2nd][F3] respectively

1. CLEAN THE SLATE (so to speak) and ENTER DATA

In Home folder run F6: NewProb to reset the configuration.
Press Apps, and select 6: data/Matrix editor. Select a new data set

Give it a name: here testing.

Press OK/ENTER, The data entry screen opens, enter your values.

When you finish press F2.PlotSetUp.

2. Statistical plot setup and scatter plot drawing

b142867.jpg.

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. The graph remind me of a parabola (I know I chose the exact values)

3. STATISTICAL CALC. AND REGRESSION ANALYSES.

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 the type of regression model : Linear Regression, QuadReg quadratic regression (or anything else available) X is from column1, Y is from column 2. Store RegEQ The regression equation in say Y1(x)

7c9f572.jpg

Press ENTER to save to get the Regression Equation. 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 statistical data

Usually you have to try different regression models, until you find the one that fits best the experimental data.

I need to know my exam results from 1979 how can i find them out my name is Lynne Thomas and i atttended Cansfield High School in Ashton-in-Makerfield, Wigan. Lancashire.


Hello Lynne, I would suggest you go physically to your Alma Mater and check with your administration/academic department. Not all schools make available student records online. You need to find out if they do. If they do, they will verify you are an ex-student and give you necessary instructions for online access.
