oh MAN! Calculator problems!? HELP

<p>I just got a ti-89 titanium.</p>

<p>oh man.</p>

<p>its hard to figure out.</p>

<p>any tips?</p>

<p>Read the manual.</p>

easier said than done.</p>

<p>i dont like to read directions.</p>

<p>You're going to have to, if you want to grasp the complexities of the calculator. </p>

<p>I too said, "screw the manual." About a month later, I finally broke down and read it, and was amazed at some of the things the calculator can do.</p>

<p>its so much work..
this calculator may be the death of me. </p>

<p>what do you find to be the most helpful apps?</p>

<p>I find myself using the Polynomial root finder the most, followed by the Numeric Solver and Simultaneous Equation solver.</p>

<p>i had the slope, distance and midpoint programs on my 83, if i have someone send them from there 83 to my 89 will it work still?</p>

<p>No. Try <a href="http://www.ticalc.org%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://www.ticalc.org&lt;/a> and look for Ti-89 programs.</p>


<p>Do i need to do the connect thing and transfer it all from the USB port?</p>
