Is a ti-84 cal worth getting if I have a ti-83? I'm thinking

Is a ti-84 cal worth getting if I have a ti-83? I'm thinking about going into electrical engineering which requires advance math. Any big difference between the two?

Are you even allowed calculators on tests? Literally the only use for a calculator in college. All homework you can use a computer for.

Get a TI-89. Being able to solve multiple equations with RREF instantly is a god send.

Nigger what. I'd never be able to solve the shit they did if I had to manually do long division for every damned problem. During my chem sequence you weren't allowed to use a calculator capable of graphing (in which case get a Ti-36 too), but that's a whole separate beast.

83 is fine and does rref

i went through high school and electrical engineering in college with an 83 plus
it was fine
save the money for groceries, pirate textbooks

No.

I don't see much of a difference between the two but I personally like the ti- 84 more. You could sell your 83 but wait until there's a school sale or something because the 84 will be around $100 US.

When I took a graduate level engineering course, and every math course I've taken never allowed calculators on tests. The numbers either worked out, or you set up the problem for a calculator then finished.

What could you possibly have on a test that needed more than the rref function anyways? (This is on the 83 I believe)

I'm a senior in my EE bachelor's degree. My graphing Calc was only useful for imaginary numbers. I even have a minor in math and it is all theoretical, not plug-n-chug into a calculator.

It's not that you need the RREF function, it's that it's a waste of time trying to solve KVL/KCL for example by hand since all that tests your knowledge is setting up the initial equations. If you want to find the current at some point, you still need to solve for all of the other variables. Obviously if your test bans calculators they'll set it up differently, but they were expected for mine.

I'm currently just going for gen ed while I decide my career. Are cal's baned for tests? Is that normal.

dont get one just for EE. in uni you either wont need a calculator (you will rather use a pc) or (for exams) may only use unprogrammable ones.

Dunno man, never had a class where they were except for Calc 2 during quizzes, but they were extremely simple. If calculators are banned, the problems would be set up accordingly.
