Whats the best graphing calculator to get for calculus? I have a TI-84 Plus but I heard the TI-89 Titanium is better for calculus. Is it worth getting the TI-89 Titanium?

14New MemberYes! The TI-89 Titanium is worth getting, however, some calculus professors won't let you use graphing calculators on the test simply because you can automatically get the answers. You'll definitely have to have strong algebra & trig skills...not skills in punching in numbers and getting the right answer on the graphing calculator. Professors will usually allow you to use a scientific calculator.

You'll most likely use the TI-89 titanium when you start your engineering courses...for example, linear regression or whatever. You'll definitely have an advantage there.

268Junior MemberThe 89s and higher will make homework easy... but could hurt you big time on the exams if you become dependent on the little calculator that could.

For the record, I own two slide rules. Always considered bringing those into a test just to see people's reactions. :-)
