A Basic Guide to the TI-85

This is a web version (1.0) of a guide that I originally wrote in the summer of 1994, based on class handouts that I gave during the previous academic year. It was modified in the summer of 1995 and now is in it's final written form. For more info, see the introduction. If you have any comments you can e-mail me at rlittle@math.utk.edu.

All material here is © 1996 Richard E. Little. Feel free to print out a portion or all of this guide, just be sure to keep the copyright notice in place. If you are in the Knoxville area, you can get a hardcopy version of the original at Graphic Creations, located on the UTK campus at 1809 Lake Avenue (522-6221).
