Does anyone her know how to work Texas instrument? I have an algebra class and for the life of me I don't understand it. I bought the IT83 hoping that is will help me figure out some problems. I can't seem to work it right. Does anyone know if I have to program it and if so, would you know how or where I can find this inforamtion.
thanks everyone

Hey, kaleegirl! That was the exact calculator I used when I was in college studying Specialist Maths. Anyway, don't worry too much if you don't know how to use it because I'm sure your math teacher will be a bit more "expert" in using the calculator and he or she will be more than happy to help you with it. To be honest, when I first got my calculator, I had a lot of doubts about how to use the calculator as well because it just seemed different to other calculators. But during class my lecturer showed us how to use the calculator in a step by step method, and me and my classmates had no problems approaching the lecturer if we had anything we don't understand about how to use the calculator. If you teacher isn't willing to teach you how to use it, try approaching some of your classmates to teach you. Since there's so many aspects of the calculator to learn, I don't think it's feasible to teach it online; besides, it's been years since I was in college, I also forgotten a lot about how to use the calculator already.....

Oh, I see....hmmm, that way I don't think it's easy to get much help. By the way, there should be a user manual that comes with the calculator you bought, since when I bought mine I had the user manual. Try to check whether you have the manual or not, because it should help you a bit in trying to understand how to use the calculator. Good luck in your studies!

Algebra...YUCK! I hate math. I have no idea how to work those calculators. I won't buy one because I know I wouldn't be able to figure them out. I hope you find the answers you are looking for.
