Calculator Programs

The programs here let you use your TI calculator to control several different types of equipment. Some of the programs stand alone, while others are designed to serve as building blocks from which you can construct your own programs. Writing your own program can be as simple as the 4-line program at right. The example makes a SAM robot pivot 45° and move forward by 75 cm.

To transfer programs from this site to your calculator, you need a TI-Graph Link cable and either TI Connect or TI-Graph Link software. Click here for additional information about installing the cable and computer software.

Select the equipment you will be controlling:
Basic Switch or other stand-alone equipment
Pointer / Power Pulley
SAM, the Robot
