Solution 11913: Accessing Constants on a TI-83 Plus Family, TI-84 Plus Family, or TI-Nspire™ in TI-84 Plus Mode.

How do I access constants on the TI-83 Plus family, TI-84 Plus family and TI-Nspire in TI-84 Plus Mode?

Neither the TI-83 Plus family, TI-84 Plus family, or the TI-Nspire Handheld in TI-84 Plus Mode include built-in constants. However, the Science Tools app contains the most common constants. Once the Science Tools app has been loaded on the handheld, the constants can be accessed following the steps below: 

• Press [APPS] [ALPHA] [S] to access the APPS menu and jump to the "S" category.
• Select the SciTools app and press [ENTER].
• Press [ENTER] again to bypass the app's "splash" screen.
• Press [2] to select the "Unit Converter" option.

• Press the [Y=] key to access the "CONSTANT" menu.
• Highlight the desired constant and press [ENTER] to select it. Press the [ZOOM] key to export the value for the constant to the home screen.

• Press [2ND] [QUIT] [2ND] [QUIT] to QUIT and return to the SciTools home screen.
• Press the [Y=] key to "EXIT" the SciTools app return to the home screen.

The value for the selected constant should now be displayed on the handheld's home screen.
