I have a ti-89 so it can do both limits and derivatives and I use it mostly just to check my homework. I also have a ti-83plus because 89's arent allowed to be used on the exams. My problem is sometimes I cant figure out how the 89 is giving me a certain answer. so even though its right I'm not really learning anything because it doesnt show how it got there.
I was wondering if anyone knows of a program or some way to on either an 83plus or a ti-89 the do limits and/or derivatives but have it actually show the work of what its doing.
I did a search but wasnt able to find anything very helpful but I apologise if this has been covered.
There is a program that you can buy that will work them out for you step-by-step. Like I said you must buy the program, and it isn't cheap ($100.00). You can download it at Calculus Trig Geometry Matrix and Sudoku Made Easy for the Ti89/Titanium/Ti-92+/Voyage200. However, I am warning you that this is something that you do not want to get addicted to. You must learn how to do them on your own. A friend gave this program as a gift, yet I have learned to the key concepts and have near mastered the technique. This program will kill you in the end for the final if you rely on it, because like I said there are no calculators on the finals. To a certain degree it reminds me of MapleSoft only in a more compressed undersized bundle. Again I am warning you; learn the material and do not waste your time sitting around pressing buttons.
