Formula Programs:
Cube, Cylla, Pyramid, Trig
 These programs do not actually do
anything, they are used as references.
 Access them by going to “edit” for that
program.
 Be sure to use “quit” to go back to your
home screen, “clear” will erase lines of the
program.

F2k, Math
 These have several functions within a single
program.
 You must choose from the menu which
functions you wish to perform, then you
must follow the directions correctly for each
function

infinite 3. infinite limit 4. A x B)


Math:
Area (list of formulas)
 Volume (list of formulas)
 Loan (calculates pmts & interest)
 Distance (calculates and gives formula)
 Midpoint (calculates and gives formula)
 Sales Tax (calculates tax and total price)

triangle
all tri (find area: 1. by length 2. by SAS)
 right tri (find length of: 1. hypotenuse
2. a leg)
 special tri (1. 30-60-90 2. 45-45-90)

Dist
finds the distance between two points
 gives the formula used
 tells the square root taken to find the
distance in case the answer is needed in

Line
gives the formula for point-slope form
 the user inputs a point and the slope
 the program writes an equation in slopeintercept form

Log
user inputs the “of” number (fatty) and the
base

Midpoint
user gives two coordinates
 program gives the midpoint on two lines (x,
y)

Pythagor
which side is missing
 program calculates the missing side when
the other two are given

user inputs A, B and C
 the solution is given

simplifies roots other than square
 index is the root, radicand is the number

Slope
