    Ok i had a good TI graphing calculator from college but it seems to have dissappeared with the kids.


    I now need a good TI-86 graphing calculator if anyone has a good one for a good price let me know. Oldest boy needs it for algebra, if i cant find one soon i will buy a new one.

    Jerry,

    It is funny that you mentioned this. Before a few days ago I would have had no clue about this but my boy needed one for high school so we had to go and buy him one. FYI if nobody can help you I know that Staples has them. I looked at their web site and I did not see the TI-86 listed at all. We ended up with the TI-84 Silver which had all of the algebra, trig, chemistry, geometry. I don't know if that was all or not. I think it was $129 with a $15 mail-in rebate.

    I have not messed with it yet and I was shocked to find out that these calculators were so expensive. Apparently they are quite a powerful tool...or at least they better be.:eek:

    Here is the link to the item on Staples site.

    As someone who has used TI calculators since highschool and still uses a TI-84 plus silver today in engineering classes yes they are powerful tools. Spend the extra couple of dollars for the new one unless you can find a used one you feel very comfortable with. If you do find a used one make sure it comes with all the things that were in the original package (Like cables, and I believe they come with a software CD) Also I recomendGetting one that is USB compatible so you don't have to use TI's link cable. Any questions PM me or check www.ticalc.org. Watch the kids as it is only a matter of time until they load games into it to play during class.

    Yeah but if I had known the extent of the games you can get in HS I never would have made it through classes. Thankfully i didn't have access to all the games until my older, more responsible ;) years, at college.

    Ya the reall kicker that just gets me big big time is i had a TI - 86 from college and my genius son lost it at school last year and he gives me a paper yesterday the day before school starts a paper he has had since the end of school last year saying they must have a TI 86 this year for algebra 2. Told the wife i should sell some of his xbox crap to show him what a $100 bucks looks like lol.

    I have found several on ebay and amazon as well as a site the has them with all the new stuff etc but used for half price.

    I just saw this, if its not to late, I have a TI 86 I will get rid of for $50, I have to make sure it is still in good condition. Im sure we can work something out, it is not of much use to me anymore, make an offer. I just live down the road.
