    I have a lot of work to do for my Math's class but unfortunately, I've lost be TI-83 graphics calculator. I've noticed a few calculator apps for the Mac and was wondering if there was one out there that is as close as possible to the functionality of this Calculator?

    Pretty much I need logs and the ability to find intercepts after sketching a graph etc.

    Thanks

    Pulled this from the thread mentioned above, but it's worth posting in here, I think. It's called Magic Number Machine.

    Also, if you or anyone you know owns a PDA or smartphone you might be able to buy an emulator program for it. Of course, you wouldn't be allowed to use it on a test but if that's no problem then there's another solution.

    Before downloading anything give Grapher a try. It's can be a little unintuitive but it should be able to do what you want... and best of all it's all ready installed on your computer.

    I've tried Grapher and it's good but I haven't figured out (if possible) how to get the intercepts etc.

    Also, I wouldn't be using it in a test, this is just for now until school resumes and I can hopefully get a replacement.

    To find intersects, just use good old algebra:p

    Yeah, but usually if I don't need to use Algebra you can sketch it on a calc, or use that to check that your algebra is correct.
