This book is a collection of TI-BASIC programs and their codes. By copying the code into your own TI-83+/TI-84 calculator, you will be able to use any of these programs on your own.
Writing a Program
There are just a few steps to follow in order to write a program onto your TI-83+ or TI-84 calculator using TI-BASIC.
- Turn on your calculator and press the PRGM button.
- Press the right arrow button twice to move to NEW.
- Press Enter to select Create New.
- Name the program. If the program is of your own creation, give it whatever name you would like it to have using the letters above each button or any of the numbers 0-9. If you are copying a program from this book, type in the name already given.
- Write the code of the program by using the digits and commands found on the calculator and by using the PRGM sub-menus while within the program code. These menus contain lists of many of the most vital programming commands, such as If, Then, End, While, Menu(, and many others. Other helpful menus of commands are the MATH, TEST, and DRAW command lists.
Note: Some of the programs in this book use lower-case letters in their program codes. In order for a TI calculator user to type in lower-case letters you must have MirageOS on your calculator. You must also check the checkbox for Enable Lowercase in Miscellaneous Options on the Options screen within MirageOS. The Options screen can be opened by pressing the ALPHA key in MirageOS. RAOSX is also useful for enabling lowercase letters and other common assembly functions.

All of these can be used with the TI-83 and TI-84
