Ti Nspire finally has some programming capabilities with the latest operating system upgrade. The program editor is accessible through the 1.calculator option (press menu and choose 8 then 1). Nspire doesn't come with any documentation about programming.
Here is my first program. THE HORRENDOUS QUADRATIC FORMULA (wish i had this calculator during beginning of High School)
Define LibPub qdratic(a,b,c)=
Disp "+ root =",
Disp "- root =",
*note you must save this in myLib folder for it to be accessible via command line
if you save the file as eqn then
Calculator entry line is eqn\qdratic(a,b,c)
Well the reasoning behind this post was simple enough - I am hoping other people will share their programs ...now that this calculator is finally capable. As you can see many tedious calculations can be made easy even on the non-CAS version of the calculator with little code. The CAS version can do all of calculus but it is not allowed on any exams so not worthwhile for most students.
[hey i learned some latex commands too whoohoo]
