New Mailing List Created: timath

A new mailing list, timath, has been created. It is intended for the discussion of mathrelated topics regarding TI calculators. This can include, but is not limited to, programs that do math, how the calculator performs math, and math used in creating games. We hope that if you are interested you will subscribe.

This should be very interesting... I assume this is in response to the poll on whether there should be more postings on issues related to maths?

This is awesome! Now we math geeks can actually talk about math on the calculator, which was designed for math in the first place. I'm going over there as soon as I'm done typing this up, and I urge others to do the same thing. Help promote more math, over games, on the TI line of calculators. For a long time now, everyone in my school could plau tetris, mario, and passwordlock their calculator, but couldn't find the solver on it. That irritated me, now I can see that not everyone in the TI community just gets the calculators for the games :)
Good luck to all, and visit my website.

I'm replying to the comments on the sovler, and our teacher tells us that the fastest and the best way to solve equations, those that are simple, for the solver, but also the ones for simult and poly. She actually recommends that we use those, and I'm a sophomore in Algebra 2, and next year I'm taking calculus. Most everyone in the class has a TI86, and one kid has an 82, and my teacher says that as long as there are so many people, might as well spend time to go over the functions in class after a quiz if we have time.
Keep smiling and visit my website for customized programs just for you!

Good idea. I have some questions. Will this relate to all intresting math, or just intresting math that a calculator can do? If one wanted to put something cool in the newsletter, how would they do it? Email ticalc I guess.

Speaking of math, does anyone have or know of a place where I can get some 3d raycasting equations/algorithms? I'd be very appreciative.
Glad to see that at least somewhat more of an emphasize is being placed on the math capabilities of calculators.

Well,i guess this is related to math..
this problem has stumped me for a while and i need someone to tell me the fault in it:
1/1=1/1
i^2=1
i^2/1=1/i^2
squareroot each side and you get:
i/1=1/i
now cross multiply and you get:
1=1
How is this correct, or what is the fault in this? Note i do not know the answer, please help.
