I want to buy a new graphing calculator ~100$. I found this and I think this is the best what I can buy, what do you think? http://graphcalculator.net/ti-84-plus-g … alculator/ Thank you for your answers!

It is a good calculator, I have used theTI-85 and the TI-92. HP makes a good calculator but they are horribly overpriced inasmuch if you have a laptop you can get much more computing power, better graphics, much more speed etc by loading it with a CAS like Sage, geogebra, Maxima. Mathematica and Maple have student editions for Windows or Linux that will be about that price and will be far superior.

If you are absolutely stuck with the calculator option ( do not want to carry the laptop ) then you will be satisfied with it.

Do you have a smartphone? Just install the Geogebra app, that should be all.

The laptop will be much faster.

hi Linda90

Welcome to the forum.

I haven't used that particular model but I've always preferred the TI's to any other make. Texas have a lot of backup help for students.
