FREE download TI-84 Graphing Calculator

If you do not have a TI-84 calculator to use at home, you can download a TI-84 Plus Silver Edition calculator emulator to your computer.  You can set it up to use the same operating system we use in class. 

For instructions on downloading the TI-84 Plus operating system, downloading the Wabbitemu, and setting up the emulator on your computer desktop, select file below.
