The TI-84 is a graphing calculator that is made by TI, or Texas Instruments. The TI-84 comes in two versions, the Plus and the Plus Silver. Released in 2004, it is faster and has a higher contrast screen than the TI-83 Plus. The "θ" is a lower-case Greek letter. In mathematics, the theta -- or "θ" -- is frequently used as a variable to represent an angle. It is used in trigonometry and with polar coordinates.
