Graphing Calculator Manuals

In my travels as a math teacher, I have collected some terrific resources for learning how to use different calculators. I am sharing those resources here at the request of several teachers.

With that said, I don't know or remember where I got these resources from. If I knew, I sourced it or it is in the document. I am providing these as a resource to other math teachers. If you want credit for something here, let me know and you will have it immediately.

If you made something here and you want it taken down, let me know also. I hope you would reconsider and share it though.

**Casio Calculators**

Personally, I am frustrated with the Casio and the amount of resources available for the Casio. The company does not do a good job with the resources to teach learners and teachers how their calculators are used. It is for that reason I have so many docs here, because I have searched and searched to try and find things to help my learners.
There is one site that has a lot of help, and it can be found here.

This set of document are probably the best documents to show teachers and learners how to use the Casio and TI calcs. It has side by side instructions for both calcs for many algebra and a few stats functions. 9750 vs. ti83/84 zipped folder (18 different matched How To's)

**TI - 83 / 84 Calculators**

The old standby of the calculator world. You can do a lot with them, and there are thousands of sites and files.

I want to start off with the Virtual TI. It is an opens source emulator for several TI models (but not the 84). I use it at school frequently.

**TI - 89 Calculators**

The 89 has CAS, Computer Algebriac System. It is a terrific calculator for algebra and calculus. It has some weakenesses for Stats. It clearly was not inteded for stats.

William Larson has done some great tutorials.
