All there is to know about TI-BASIC, assembly language, and everything in between.

From the Foreword by Brandon Wilson, Advanced Call Center (ACT)

Programming the TI-83 Plus/TI-84 Plus is an example-filled, hands-on tutorial that introduces students, teachers, and professional users to programming with the TI-83 Plus and TI-84 Plus graphing calculators. This fun and easy-to-read book immediately immerses you in your first programs and guides you concept-by-concept, example-by-example. You'll learn to think like a programmer as you use the TI-BASIC language to design and write your own utilities, games, and math programs.

About the Technology

The TI-83 Plus and TI-84 Plus are more than just powerful graphing calculators—they are the perfect place to start learning to program. The TI-BASIC language is built in, so you have everything you need to create your own math and science programs, utilities—even games.

About the book

Programming the TI-83 Plus/TI-84 Plus teaches universal programming concepts and makes it easy for students, teachers, and professionals to write programs for the world's most popular graphing calculators. This friendly tutorial guides you concept-by-concept, immediately immersing you in your first programs. It introduces TI-BASIC and z80 assembly, teaches you tricks to slim down and speed up your programs, and gives you a solid conceptual base to explore other programming languages.

This book is written for beginners—no programming background is assumed.
