I'm not even sure if this is the right section to post this in, but here it goes . . . I'm a freshman and I've just taken on my first research project. We only have like 2 professors at my college that are doing any research so I'm taking whatever I can get. I'm like 5 years out of school so I'm starting with just College Algebra to make sure I haven't forgotten how to add. Anyways, that was just for a little background on me . . . My assignment is dealing with programming a TI-83 to do the recursive relation. Basically the chaos theory . . . I'm not at all familiar with this, but have already learned a lot by self teaching . . . My problem is I'm having a lot of trouble finding information on programming the TI-83. I'm sure I can figure it out, I just don't know where to go to learn to do such a thing. I'm sure there are a million students who have done this before, but I don't want their answer, I would rather find out how to do it myself. I have spoken with my Algebra professor about my assignment and she mentioned that programming TI-83's is kind of old news and that most people are paying attention to programming with MatLab and Mathematica. I'm not really too concerned with getting published just yet, but I would like to get my "feet wet" with some research to see what it's like. So far, it's just frustrating. But I expect that. Anyways, if someone could just point me in the right direction, I would be grateful. Thanks.
