I believe the 92 can draw three dimensional graphs.Lukehttps://www.blogger.com/profile/03449239210893170230noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1471107802247799161.post-51735504381014986312010-02-24T11:48:02.471-05:002010-02-24T11:48:02.471-05:00"I didn't need it."
Ouch!
But, hey..."I didn't need it."<br /><br />Ouch!<br /><br />But, hey, that is a whole lot better than bringing training pullups to a slumber party (luckily, not from first-hand experience).<br /><br />Grace DukeAnonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1471107802247799161.post-75097858088279389502010-02-24T11:36:45.967-05:002010-02-24T11:36:45.967-05:00Yeah, I forgot to bring my scientific calculator t...Yeah, I forgot to bring my scientific calculator to my Chemistry final, for which actual number type calculations were required.

But they're really expensive, and none of the professors will let you use them on the test. Texas Instruments has a calculator (TI-89) that does derivatives, and integrals too I think. Of course, that would only be a small portion of a couple of the DE problems, but still, the TI-89 sort of almost does some "alphabet math." Although, I think it can only do it with one variable, so I guess it doesn't really count.Arielhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/00544262080938175079noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1471107802247799161.post-596495203250087872010-02-24T06:35:17.831-05:002010-02-24T06:35:17.831-05:00Har har...
