 nurwen 5:59am on Thursday, July 22nd, 2010 Texas Instruments TI34II Calculator My daughter is REQUIRED to have this calculator for math class. Needless to say we bought one and it disappeared. Poor shipping & service from ReStockIt I am quite disappointed in my order of 2 Texas Instuments 34 II calculators. Missing one thing: commas I have the TI 30X-IIS, a nice dual power, 2 line calculator. It has one feature missing, the fraction bar key. kbuIUJ8 4:29pm on Friday, March 12th, 2010 Always dependable! My daughter needed this calculator for her math class. It is enough to grow with her.

General Information
Examples: See the last page of these instructions for keystroke examples that demonstrate many of the TI-34 functions. Examples assume all default settings. & turns on the TI-34. % ' turns it off and clears the display. APD (Automatic Power Down) turns off the TI-34 automatically if no key is pressed for about 5 minutes. Press & after APD. The display, pending operations, settings, and memory are retained. 2-Line Display: The first line (Entry Line) displays an entry of up to 88 digits (or 47 digits for Stat or Constant Entry Line). Entries begin on the left; those with more than 11 digits scroll to the right. Press ! and " to scroll the line. Press % ! or % " to move the cursor immediately to the beginning or end of the entry. The second line (Result Line) displays a result of up to 10 digits, plus a decimal point, a negative sign, a x10 indicator, and a 2-digit positive or negative exponent. Results that exceed the digit limit are displayed in scientific notation. Indicator 2nd

Clearing and Correcting
Clears an error message. Clears characters on entry line. Moves the cursor to last entry in history once display is clear. J Deletes the character at the cursor. Deletes all characters to the right when you hold down J; then, deletes 1 character to the left of the cursor each time you press J. %f Inserts a character at the cursor. %{ Clears all memory variables. %t Clears all data points without exiting CLRDATA STAT mode. % w Y Clears all data points and exits STAT mode. %Y Resets the TI-34. Returns unit to or default settings; clears memory variables, pending operations, all &&entries in history, and statistical data; clears constant mode and Ans.

Q R N/Dn/d

Definition 2nd function. Fixed-decimal setting. Statistical mode. Angle mode set to radians. Displays quotient (Q) and remainder (R) for integer divide result. The fractional result can be further simplified. An entry is stored in memory before and/or after the active screen. Press # and \$ to scroll. An entry or menu displays beyond 11 digits. Press ! and " to scroll.
Fractional calculations can display fractional or decimal results. % ~ displays a menu of 4 display mode settings. These determine how fraction results are displayed. You select 2 items: Ab/c displays mixed number results. d/e (default) displays fraction results. Manual (default) displays unsimplified fractions. Auto displays fraction results simplified to lowest terms. @ separates a whole number from the fraction in a mixed number, and > separates a numerator from the denominator. The denominator must be a positive integer. To negate a fraction, press M before entering numerator. } < simplifies a fraction using the lowest common prime factor. If you want to choose the factor (instead of letting the calculator choose it), press }, enter the factor (an integer), and then press <. % ? displays Fac on the entry line and the divisor used to simplify the last fraction result. You must be in Manual mode to display Fac. Press % ? again to toggle back to the simplified fraction. Q converts a fraction to a decimal, if possible. R converts a decimal to a fraction, if possible. % N converts a decimal or fraction to a percent. % O converts between a mixed number and a simple fraction.

p =3.141592653590 for calculations. p =3.141592654 for display. In RAD mode, p is represented as Pi in results of
multiplication or fractional calculations. The TI-34 only accepts p in the numerator of a fraction.

Angle Modes

2nd Functions: % displays the 2nd indicator, and then selects the 2nd function (printed above keys) of the next key pressed. For example, % b 25 E < calculates the square root of 25 and returns the result, 5. Menus: Certain TI-34 keys display menus: z, % h, L, % d, % ~, % A, % B, % t, u, % w, H, % I, =, % k, % , and %. Press ! and " to move the cursor and underline a menu item. To return to the previous screen without selecting the item, press -. To select a menu item: Press < while the item is underlined, or For menu items followed by an argument value, enter the argument value while the item is underlined. The item and the argument value are displayed on the previous screen.

Math Operations

% d displays a menu with various math functions. Some functions require you to enter 2 values, real numbers or expressions that equal return a real number. % ` separates two values.
abs(#) round(#,digits) iPart(#) fPart(#) min(#1,#2) max(#1,#2) lcm(#1,#2) gcd(#1,#2)
Displays absolute value of #. Rounds # to specified number of digits. Returns only the integer part (iPart) or fractional part (fPart) of #. Returns the minimum (min) or maximum (max) of two values, #1 and #2. Finds the least common multiple (lcm) or greatest common divisor (gcd) of two values, #1 and #2. Calculates the cube of #. Calculates the cube root of #. Returns the remainder resulting from the division of 2 values, #1 by #2.
% I displays a menu to change the Angle mode to degrees or radians. = displays a menu to specify the Angle unit modifier degrees (), minutes (), seconds (), radians ( r), or 4DMS (convert an angle to DMS notation). To set the Angle mode for any part of an entry: Select the Angle mode. Entries are interpreted and results displayed according to the Angle mode, or Select a unit modifier ( r ) for any part of an entry. Entries with unit modifiers are interpreted accordingly, overriding the Angle mode. To convert an entry: Set the Angle mode to the unit you want to convert to. Then use a unit modifier to designate the unit to convert from. (Angles of trigonometric functions convert values inside parentheses first.), or Select 4DMS, which converts an entry to DMS ( ) notation.

Previous Entries

Trig and Logarithms

After an expression is evaluated, use # and \$ to scroll through previous entries, which are stored in the TI-34 memory. You cannot retrieve previous entries while in STAT mode.

Integer Divide

The most recently calculated result is stored to the variable Ans. Ans is retained in memory, even after the TI-34 is turned off. To recall the value of Ans: Press % i (Ans displays on the screen), or Press any operations key (T, U, F, etc.) as the first part of an entry. Ans and the operator are both displayed.
% Y divides 2 positive integers and displays the quotient, Q, and the remainder, R. Only the quotient is stored to Ans.
% B displays a menu of all trigonometric functions (sin, sin -1, cos, cos-1, tan, tan-1). Select the trigonometric function from the menu and then enter the value. Set the desired Angle mode before starting trigonometric calculations. % A displays a menu of all log functions (log, 10^, ln, e ^). Select the log function from the menu, then enter the value, and complete it with E <.

RectangularPolar

% k displays a menu to convert rectangular coordinates (x,y) to polar coordinates (r,) or vice versa. Set Angle mode, as necessary, before starting calculations.
