An Hp-35 is to a Ti-89 as a pile of rocks is to a slide rule.if that's really necessary. Don't see why it would be.
When we took Calc we were taught how to graph a function using stone age clues like the first and second derivative, vertical and Hz asymptotes, local max/min and axis crosses.
Now that it is all done on the Ti, and you had better have your scale set correctly or you won't see much detail. The Ti will do the integration for you.
Nice tool for a lot of things but not so sure it is worth the time to learn for those of us that remember the gas lines of the 70's. IMHO for us time would be better spent polishing our Excel and Python/C++ skills?
