Logarithms using the TiNspire CX

Say we have to logarithm base 6 of the cube root of 3 , here is how we enter it into the TiNspire CX CAS:

Upon pressing ENTER we will see the pretty format and the answer:

Let’s do another example: Logarithm base 6 of 1296 :

Pressing ENTER yields the solution 4 (since 1296 = 6^4) :

Here is exponential equation involving logarithm:

This is how it is entered:

Conveniently, log base 10 and exponential base 10 function cancel to get

Now we solve this function:


Lastly, evaluate

We enter as

to get

The reason for that clean answer is using the ln rules as follows:

and lastly

We have to solve the following logarithmic equation:

Enter as

log((r+15)^2,3) = 4 and lastly

solve( log((r+15)^2,3) = 4 , r)

which solves for r using the TiNspire cx .

By hand: log_3_(r+15)^2 = 4 calls for exponentiating both sides using base 3 which yields : (r+15)^2 = 3^4 = 81
Square rooting both sides : r+15 = plus or minus 9
Thus, r = -6 or r = -24 . Plug each into the original equation to verify the correctness.

Confidence Intervals and Margin of Error using the TiNSpire CX

To find Confidence Intervals of Proportions using Statistics Made Easy at  https://www.tinspireapps.com/?a=SPME use option 7

Next, the given proportion po , sample size n and the confidence level alpha as shown below:

Automatically, the correct setup and solution shows in the bottom window.


To also find the sample size given the Margin of Error use option 9:

you will enter the given Margin of Error, proportion and the confidence level Alpha

Again, the correct setup is shown and the sample size is computed step by step, here we get n>=441.7187

Gamma and Beta Function – Step by Step – for the TiNSpire CX

To compute the Gamma Function – Step by Step – using the TiNspire CX start the Differential Equation Made Easy app at https://www.tinspireapps.com/?a=DEQME  , go to menu option EXTRAS and select GAMMA FUNCTION. You will be prompted to enter value for n as shown below.

Entering in example n=9 yields 8! or 40320 as the Gamma Value.

You may also enter .5 – value such as 4.5 or 9/2 into the Gamma Function, see below.

The Beta Function can easily be computed using the Gamma Function upon entering two values x and y for the Beta Function. Just select BETA FUNCTION under the EXTRAS menu.

Below we are entering x=5 and y = 4 to get the correct Beta Function value of 1/280 :

As you can see the Gamma and Beta Functions can be computed easily using the Differential Equations Made Easy. Values are computed step and step and are always correct. Even for large values of x and y and n .

SOLVED: How to Connect a Ti89 Calculator to a modern Mac Computer using TI-Connect v4.1

Here is a proven way for those of you that struggle to connect your Ti89 calculator to a MAC computer.

This is what you need to do to get connected:

  1. Uninstall TI Connect v4.0 if installed.
  2. Download and Install TI Connect version 4.1  : https://education.ti.com/ticonnect/ticonnectmac41 . Beware: this link immediately downloads the .dmg file to your MAC, there is no webpage loading. Note: that download link may change if TI places the link on a webpage instead.
  3. Make sure that you do not have a USB cable connected to your computer WHILE installing TI Connect.
  4. If Ti89 is not recognized by your MAC: restart the MAC, try the other USB ports, have patience as drivers may take time to load. Listen carefully for sounds signaling successful driver installation.

Please find further information on troubleshooting connectivity issues here:


Dont forget TI’s contacts: 1800-TICARES  and ticares@ti.com – very friendly and helpful reps.
