    My math teacher lets me use my ds as a calculator in class so is there any program with a big list of formulas or an ebook or something that I could run on it?

    I know I'm using it. I meant is there like a big list of formulas with everything I could need somewhere like in the form of an ebook or text file or even a ds program dedicated specifically to it

    edit:actually I think its a t 83+ emu is there any difference?

    You would have to be more specific. How hard is it to make a list yourself? Depending on what math class you are in, I doubt you would need every formula ever made.

    You could fairly easily make a list of all the required formulae. Depending on the formulae, you could maybe use plain txt file, and view it with DSOrganize, Moonshell, DS Libris, DS Reader etc.

    If its formula with lots of symbols, you may be better to go with either a PDF and use Ands PDF Viewer (I think its called that), or else use a load of image files and view them with Moonshell or Comic Book DS.

    Of course, you won't be able to switch between formulae and the calculator very easily....

    good point I might as well right it out on a piece of paper I was just checking to see if their were any files like that already made.

    Re-make your list and get it laminated.
    Your DS won't fare any better against a water bottle [​IMG]

    Hate to say it, but you'd really be better of writing it down. The DS would simply be an inefficient way of doing this. When it comes time for the test, do you really want to spend 30+ second shutting down the TI-83 emulator and booting the formula viewer, then another 30+ seconds switching back to the calculator so you can run your calculations? The alternative is to simply organize your formula sheet in such a way that you know exactly where to look, taking 5 seconds to find and read the formula, and then you can keep plugging away at the problem.
