Kirk Meyer to Develop Math Programs
Posted on 30 August 1998, 01:59 GMT

Kirk Meyer has announced that he is working on an assembly program to do the quadratic formula. After that is completed he will work on a project called Cymbol, which will include things like trigonometry, triangles, and whatever anyone else asks for. Kirk is asking for public input as to what it should include and what the interface should be (seperated from the TI-OS, integrated, other...).

hmmm.. i wonder why nobody writes a sybolic manipulator for the 86... it would be pretty hard to program though..
(of course the mere threat of the 86 not being allowed on tests is enough for nobody to make it..)

if you want a symbolic manipulator, buy a TI-89! this is designed to give people great flexibility. my program will allow users to design their own applets. then you can keep only the applets you want.

How about an assembly science program that does single replacement, double replacement, and redox reactions. It wouldn't be that hard to program, and there would be a lot of grateful chem 1 students.

Good work Kirk! I think there should be more ti-86 math programs, and if I weren't only in the eighth grade, I would make some ASM math programs for Calculus and stuff. The most advanced math I know is trig, but there are already enough trig programs out.

Dumb question, but what calculator is this going to be for? or will it eventually be ported to all 8x calcs?

I am guessing the TI-86, since that's what Kirk always writes for.

Is Kirk still going to program games like Sim Community 2000? I really like his games and I hope he doesn't stop entirely on them.

Some algebra2/pre-cal/calc stuff would be pretty usefule, not musch of that out for the 86

Hey Kirk, How about a *fast* assembly 3D grapher? All of the basic ones are way too slow or have some type of problem with them.
(I know it's on the 89,92,and 92+, but I don't have the money to get any of these.)

Talk to SCaBBy (m@shepcar.force9.co.uk) about that. He has already written 3D routines so it'd be easier for him to do than me. Of course, he'll say no but that's not the point :)

I(we) would love to look at this routines as a possible lib to DHOS

Are there any plans to port this to other calculators?

MATH PROGRAMS!!!!!!
Jonathan Moore

If you get the chance, any and all things to do with conversions! (i.e. lbs to grams, quarts to liters, etc., etc.) Also, dont forget, the TI 92 could use easy conversions for temperatures as well. And as far as the math goes, ANYTHING to help me through the mess! Trig, Calc, Calc II, etc.

I was just browsing the internet to see if anybody had the same name as me. You must be pretty cool if you have the same name as me. I think a persons name has a lot to do with their personality. I also love using your calculators in my Functions class.
