Using the TI-92+ Calculator as a Tool for Illustrating Programming Concepts.
This paper describes how the TI-92+ calculator can be valuable in illustrating basic and advanced programming concepts in introductory computer science courses. Descriptions of the scope of the curricula for the courses in which the TI-92+ is used are provided. The TI-92+ programming language is particularly useful in demonstrating the progression in program development from pseudocode to code. Examples using MAPLE code are employed. Programming examples using TI-92+ are also included. (DDR)
