The following pages are designed to help you use your TI-89 calculator effectively and efficiently in AP Calculus. It is assumed that you are familiar with the operation of a typical graphing calculator, so only features unique to the TI-89 and AP Calculus are discussed.

- absolute values
- enter absolute values into the TI-89?
- interpret absolute value statements?

- calculate the average value of a function?
- handle composition of functions?
- test for concavity of functions?
- calculate derivatives?
- convert radians to degrees and vice-versa?
- use f(x) notation?
- avoid doing something really dumb...
- use the greatest integer function?
- figure out the home screen?
- tell whether a function is increasing or decreasing?
- implicit functions:
- Integrals
- approximate definite integrals
- using Riemann sums?
- using the Trapezoidal Rule?

- evaluate definite integrals?
- evaluate indefinite integrals?

- approximate definite integrals
- limits
- calculate limits?
- limits at infinity?

- lines
- find the equation of a line?
- find an equation of a tangent line?

- do mathematical modeling of data?
- find maxima and minima of functions
- solve Mean Value Theorem problems?
- start a new problem?
- get "nice numbers" when tracing, etc.?
- handle piecewise functions?
- recall function or program parameters?
- do the second derivative test for maxima and minima?
- calculate single-variable statistics (mean and standard deviation)?
- draw slope fields?
- solve
- substitute a value for a variable?
- make a table of values?
- transfer functions/programs between calculators?
- handle transformation of functions?
- units:
- create a user-defined function?
- work with variables?
