This week we continued working with TI-83 BASIC! We wrote some very BASIC (pun intended) programs dealing with Coordinate Geometry (Slope, Distance) and Series (West, Bagdad).
I think my students enjoy this topic as they can take these skills to Math and Science class where they use TI-83s or TI-84s.
We'll take a look at TI-89 BASIC in a future case study. The TI-89 is more like SAGE in that it has a Computer Algebra System built in. Also, TI-89 BASIC uses functions just like Python.
Here's our ScreenCasts and Code for this week:
