I usually carry 2, but only 1 is graphing. The graphing calculator is a Casio fx9750g+ and the scientific calc is Casio fx82L ( for backup in case the graphing runs out of batteries ) I don't see the point in carrying 2 or more High-Level graphics calculators.

Nobody here carries 4 calculators, but me. When I voted, I was the only one who carries 4 calculators.
I carry a TI-83 Plus, a TI-30x, a Casio watch with calculator and a non-scientific Sharp calculator.

I'm the second 4-calc person. I usually carry my 83, 85, 86, and 89. Occasionally this varies (for example, I carry a TI-34 scientific in addition to the other four when going to math competitions) to either 3 or 5. For the past week or so, my 83 has been AWOL after I made the mistake of loaning my 83 to the wrong person during history. (Note to self: check with history teacher on that.) I'm currently carrying an 85, 86, 89 and 34. Unlike most people, I literally never leave home without my 89, if not the rest of my calcs as well. To aid in this, as well as protect them from theft and/or unauthorized borrowing, I carry mine in my cargo pockets (probably the one good thing to come from the fact that my school requires pants (female students are permitted to wear skirts, but that does little for the guys (including me), or at least nothing mentionable here) I have often wondered why we must wear pants when the school is in Miami).

Please pardon all the odd ponderances in the above paragraph; there is some significance and relevance hidden in there. I have been cramming for midterms for several hours, and my verbal side was getting tired of physics and ToK (Theory of Knowledge).

Queria...!

Dá-me um pouco de atenção amor.... Só quero que saibas o que me vai no coração....!
Queria que lesses isto com calma porquep foi escrito com todo o amor do Mundo e mais algum, com todo o meu amor e mais nenhum, para ti, por ti!
Eu queria apenas dizer-te as mais lindas palavras do mundo.... é essa a minha vontade desde o primeiro momento em que soube que existias.... desde o primeiro momento em que ouvi o teu nome... Fatinha. Eu queria ser um poeta e ter aquela voz que vem da alma, do coração, e dizer-te num grito de bem fundo: Amo-te!!! Conseguiste ouvir, sentir quanto sentimento ficou expresso naquela palavra? Dei tudo o que tinha e mais que viesse! Apenas para conseguires entender o quanto te amo... porque é só por ti que bate o meu coração... porque é só por ti que eu sofro... porque és só tu que eu amo! Só tu....
E se nalguma noite limpa estrelada de Lua Cheia ouvires ao fundo o eco da voz de alguém a gritar de longe, de bem longe como do meu olhar ao teu: Fatinha amo-te!!! Não te preocupes... lembra-te que posso ser apenas eu a tentar dizer ao Mundo que não posso viver sem ti!...
E ao som desta linda musica que vai dentro de mim, que oiço na minha cabeça e que me toca o coração... (queria tanto que pudesses ouvi-la!...É linda amor!) Do fundo do coração eu juro que te amo!!!
Eu queria joelhar-me na branca areia da praia e ficar a olhar para ti como se estivesse a adorar um Anjo, sereno... Um Anjo que aprecia o entardecer do por do Sol numa amena tarde de Verão na praia de Sesimbra... tu! Queria ficar a olhar para a serenidade do teu olhar... louco! De leve a suave brisa toca nos teus cabelos fa-los ondular como se estivessem a brincar contigo... esses teus lindos cabelos doirados pela ténue luz laranja do por do Sol. E com essas tuas lindas mãos tentas concerta-los.... lindas, fofas, queridas, morenas, amorosas... como tu, como o pele do teu rosto, moreno... como as tuas bochechas amor, tao queridas amore!... amo-te, amo-te, amo-te!!! Deixas-me de rastos!... Deixas-me louco, louco para te amar!... E enquanto esses teus cabelos lindos brincam ao sabor da brisa passeando pele da tua cara, abrilhantada pelo reflexo da luz do por do Sol... no mar, deixas em alguém a eternidade de um sofrimento pela saudade de um momento, assim...
Com a tua magia o mar parou, calou-se, ouve-se o silêncio... só eu oiço o som das minhas lagrimas a cair, que me arrancam eesta dor da alma à medida que as vejo a pingar dos olhos......... Só eu sei o quanto me custa sussurrar: Fatinha... Amo-te...! E só eu sei o quanto me custa escrever: Quem te ama sou eu!
E enquanto olhas para o horizonte não ouves que as lágrimas de alguém caíram voaram em silêncio com a brisa... Quando a mesma brisa tocar o teu rosto ficas a saber que elas caíram... E não vês que alguém sussurra em sofrimento: Fatinha... Amo-te...! E não sabes que quem te ama foi quem escreveu: Quem te ama sou eu!

Amo-te a sério! E vou até ao fim do Mundo por ti!

Amo-te! Sérgio Cruz

Funny how "the world's most efficient translating software" translates

"Where is the CD store"

as

"Donde esta el almacen 'COPIA MAS OSCURA'?"

which in turn re-translates as

"Where is the warehouse 'DARKER COPY'?"

God bless technology.

I voted that I carried three calcs because I did last year. Unfortunately, my 83's condition has fallen to the point that I just keep it next to my computer now (great spot, really). I have always loved my TI-89, but I have found a new appreciation for its AMS now that I am in AP Calc. If any of you out there are considering higher math courses, this calc is worth its weight in gold *hint*. :) (My third calc is a TI-83 plus that I bought to replace my 83)

I love that TICalc cares so much about the quality of these replies. I don't know what I would do if they ever condensed their posting guidelines any.

Why not wear a skirt? They'll get mad at you, send you home and give you a detention, most likely. Then file a sexual discrimination suit and yank ten million dollars off them and retire. Hell, if you can make the counterboy at McDonalds refill your coffe if it's cold (albeit grudgingly) and then sue their asses for fifteen million, and WIN, then you should be able to get away with something semi-reasonable like this. Or maybe not. You can never tell.

I also forgot, not realizing that a PDA really is a calculator. That makes it two calcs, TI-86 and Palm IIIxe.

P.S. Does anyone know if it is possible to make a TI-89 emulator for Palm? They seem like perfect matches. The Palm uses the same 68k architecture (does 68328 have any major differences from 68000?), although with a faster processor, and has a similar screen, although it is 60 pixels longer. So if you rewrote the screen, keyboard and memory handling (I believe there's a chip in the TI-89 that has some math functions, you might need to program that in too), wouldn't you have a functional TI-89? I don't really know much on this subject, but it looks like it's possible...

No offense to anyone who carries more than one TI calc to school each day, but why do you do it? I am in Algebra II/Trig and all I need is my 89. I can understand owning more than one but taking more than one to school, I just don't get it.

Well there are those of us that are the supplier of games and various math programs that other people either don't have the Graph Link or the smarts(or time) to program these calculators. They rely on geeks like me to bring them to them. That's why I have access to bringing an 86, 83 ,83+, and an 89 around for these issues. Well that's all I've got for now.

Re: Why?

I agree with you. Why do you need to bring more than one graphing calculator to school. I can understand bringing a simple scientific calculator just incase the graphing one dies. Even if you just use it for games, one is still enough to bring to school.

I guess the ones that bring more than one graphing calculator to school are nerds trying to show off to all the kids at school, thinking that they'll be the coolest kids in school if they have the most graphing calculators.

Eh. If you'd take the time away from insulting "geeks"
and "nerds" for carrying more than one calculator, and
maybe stay away from those all-night drinking parties,
perhaps you'd know enough English to realize that it's spelled "hear, hear." The reason people carry more than one calc is because they're packrats. I personally carry four: an 89, for game-playing and the advanced AMS tech that really helps in Trig, higher Algebra, and any AP course, my old 82 in case a teacher doesn't want you to use it (i.e. some Alg teachers, because the 89 can solve equations), a TI-30X or something like that for one teacher who doesn't let us use graphing calcs because text/notes can be stored on them, and a midget calc on my keychain for quick calculations on the fly at the lunch line or whatever. I usually end up loaning alot of these out on test days too. People generally carry all their calcs with them simply "in case." It's like losers (you, perhaps?) who carry rubbers around in their wallets "just in case" they happen to meet a really hot person of the femal gender that just happens to be blind and deaf. You don't need it, but there's no real downside (they don't weigh much) and it makes you feel better knowing that you have it if you DO need it for some obscure reason. Keep looking. I'm sure Blind-as-a-Batgirl is out there somewhere.

hehe i carry 4 calcs tooo.. i have my 89, 83+, my trusty 86 (my oldest graphing calc), and a scientific, 36x solar which is my oldest calc... in college i make use of all of them surprisingly.. esp when u take more than 2 math oriented classes (university) such as physics, chemistry, calculus, c++, c, asm, and so forth each teacher(S) has a different calculator that they allow in their classes

I also carry four calcs.

CALC What I use/have used them for.
TI-92+ <- Single/Multi-variable Calculus (CALC I-III)
Diff. Eq.
Discrete Mathematics
Quantitative Analysis/Theory
TI-83+ <- General Algebra & Calc
Linear Algebra
Casio FX-795P <- Programmer's Calc [BASIC & Assembly]
Casio PB-2000C <- Programmer's Calc[ANSI C]

The 92+ is great but can be too large and awkward. Many instructors (who are aware of its capabilities) do not allow its use for tests. It is still my favorite calculator.

The 83+ is normal in size and is quick & easy to use, I use this one a lot for quick calculations...

The others are older, so probably not anyone cares about them.

That's my 2 Cents worth...
