It sucked even for maths
I would have to some what agree and some what disagree with you.
Some of my programs are pretty nice. My sumdivisors function helps me out every now and then.
However, it doesn’t let you use the full capacity of calculating.
My sumdivisors function is based off of the factorsmatrix function in the numbertheory library, which turns the factor function into a string and then divides that at the “*” and “^” areas to make a matrix.
While it is much worse than it could be, I still find uses for it.

Well one thing that many people seemed to find particularly annoying was how the calc had no Input function like the 84+ had. It was eventually added, but under a different name.

This used to contain a signature.

You are gonna copy games by hand on every school TI-80 calc??? O.O That might be a bit of a waste of time IMHO since many troublemakers might just do RAM clears or accidentally trigger one due to dead batteries.

If I was you, I would make the game on one, but copy the code on paper and give copies of it to people.

And yes there is Input on the TI-80, but I don't remember if you can change the text at the start. I think you have to use Prompt.
