83/86

The TI 83 does recursive functions and web diagrams. It's great for doing the logistic equation and Euler's method for solving differential equations.
My calculus class had fun making the time interval large and then varying the constant k, in dp/dt=kp(1p). They used the recursive sequence mode and Euler's Method to get solution curves. A large delta t and k will lead to chaos.
The 85 doesn't do this, does the 86?
