TI84 Plus Graphing Calculator For Dummies was written by C.C. Edwards, author of TI83 Plus Graphing Calculator For Dummies, who has a Ph.D. in mathematics and teaches on the undergraduate and graduate levels. The book doesn’t delve into high math, but it does use appropriate math examples to help you delve into:
 Using the Equation Solver
 Using GeoMaster and its menu bar to construct lines, segments, rays, vectors, circles, polygons, perpendicular and parallel lines, and more
 Creating a slide show of transformations of a graph
 Using the Inequality Graphing application to enter and graph inequalities and solve linear programming problems
There’s even a handy tearout cheat sheet to remind you of important keystrokes and special menus, And since you’ll quickly get comfortable with the builtin applications, there’s a list of ten more you can download and install on your calculator so it can do even more! TI84 Plus Graphing Calculator For Dummies is full of ways to increase the value of your TI–84 Plus exponentially.
