Published by KermMartian on September 4, 2012 at 9:02:16 PM CST | Discuss this article (17)

In Part 1 of this Back-to-School Guide, I helped you decide what graphing calculator to buy. Perhaps you got a Casio Prizm, a TI-84 Plus Silver Edition, a TI-89, or even a TI-Nspire CX. Like any good student, now you want some educational programs to put on your calculator for math or science. Or if we're really being honest, you probably want some games to play during your commute and your breaks. In this article, I will teach you the simple steps to putting programs and games on your graphing calculator.

This article covers putting games, text editors, science and math programs, shells, levels, and any other calculator program you might find out on the internet on your TI-83, TI-83 Plus (or Silver Edition), TI-84 Plus (or Silver Edition), TI-89, TI-Nspire, or Casio Prizm. I'll tell you what cables you need, what software you need on your computer, and how to get files onto your calculator.

How Do I Put Games and Programs on my TI-83 Plus, TI-83 Plus Silver Edition, TI-84 Plus, or TI-84 Plus Silver Edition?
Also known as the TI-83+, TI-83+SE, TI-84+, and TI-84+SE, these calculators are unquestionably the most popular of Texas Instruments' graphing calculators, and millions of them are found in backpacks and classrooms across the world. You'll need a mini-USB or SilverLink cable, the TI-Connect or TILP II software, and a shell plus the actual games and programs from ticalc.org or the Cemetech archives.
