If you use PresstoTest, it will turn off all nonbuilt in functionality.
Turn the Calculator off.
Press and Hold the Left and Right Arrows.
Turn the Calculator on.
Choose the settings that you want to have for the exam.
Press Zoom to enter Testing Mode.
NOTE: Nice feature of the TI84 Plus C Silver Edition, when the unit is in Testing mode, the border at the top of the screen changes to BLUE denoting that the calculator is in testing mode. Easy for proctors to see that the calculator is ready for testing.
Attached is my Tips Guide for the TI84 Plus which includes PresstoTest information.
Contact me if you have questions.

I have a few students in Algebra 2 Trig that have the new TI84 Plus C Silver Edition. There is an app that that is a polynomial root finder and found one student solving trig equations with the calculator. I would assume that this feature is not allowed on the regents examination. I tried to use test guard to delete all apps and programs and an error message occurs and it will not test guard it at all.
Is there anyway that I can unarchive it?
How are other teachers handling this?
Thanks for the help

Covering graphing trig functions right now and wondering if teaching a dilation of a sine curve or cosine curve is in the curriculum or not.
Ex: y = 2 sin (3x).
What is the equation under a dilation of a scale factor of 3.
Is this in the a2trig curriculum? ******************************************************************* * To unsubscribe from this mailing list, email the message * "unsubscribe nyshsmath" to majordomo@mathforum.org * * Read prior posts and download attachments from the web archives at * http://mathforum.org/kb/forum.jspa?forumID=671 *******************************************************************
