The TI-89 Calculator is the flagship calculator from Texas Insruments that can handle many advanced math functions that are used in science, engineering, and high school AP classes. Unfortunately, the calculator itself can be difficult to use if the student doesn't take the time to learn the functions.
This DVD set will teach the student how to use the advanced functions of the TI-89 using step-by-step video examples. This way, the student learns by doing rather than a dry manual.
Note that this is Volume 2 of the TI89 Calculator Tutorial Series. Volume 1, also available at Amazon.com, covers more basic functions of this calculator.

The TI-89 is a great calcuator with a somewhat steep learning curve of its own. This is a great way to learn how to fully use this calculator. I can highly recommend all the MathTutor products for high school and first year college math students. (Those are the DVDs I have actually watched and studied; I use it together with the Great Courses lectures on math.)

Learning to use the ti-89 - start with volume 1. Jason is very clear and repeats when the going gets difficult. You can either sit and listen or work along with him. The two volumes together make an excellent coverage of how to use the ti-89, which is the most difficult calculator to learn to use I have ever come across, with an official manual that is very far from clear. There are all kinds of tips and tricks that you wouldn't find without these tutorials.
I have one caveat. Instructions for programming it are not included. Given how much the calculator can do there may have been an assumption that this is not necessary. At university level maths I need to be able to do my own thing. Please, Jason, write volume 3!

Like all of Jason's dvds this and part 2 are excellent for what he says it does, step by step ,walks you through it all.and that is why I recommend anything by Jason, it makes math easier to learn by simple repetition. And you will get the math,you will understand the math,I mean it! But these 2 DVD sets don't cover half of what this calculator does ! I inadvertently screwed up and deleated parts of the statistics applications, if you have a computer download the free ti apps,and get a backup ,this will let you put the app's back on the device. I wish I had gibsons dvds before I experimented with the calculator. I hope he does a third part covering the stuff left out in parts 1 and 2,let's see ti89 part 3 !
