3-D Vector Plotter
« on: March 06, 2007, 10:25:00 am »
This is a program I started making a while ago, although I never really got around to finishing it.  I might later on, but I'm going to put it online for anybody to download it in case they want to finish it.  It is in TI-BASIC for the TI-83+/TI-84+ series.  It definitely isn't completely optimized at the moment, partially because I wanted readability.  It is meant to serve as an aid to those learning about vectors because it offers (or it was intended to offer) a few handy features:

- Visual plotting (including addition and other operators) of 3-D vectors
- Conversion between equation formats
- A table of values for vectors
- The ability to calculate the angle between two vectors
- The ability to calculate where two vectors intersect

So far, all it can do is visually plot 3-D vectors, which is kind of cool, and adjust the window.  Here's a screenshot of it:

that's pretty cool.  Can the camera by shifted over or is the original always kind of fixed there on the left?

Nice work with the graphing ability.  :thumbup:google.gif

Perhaps you add some of these features (should be easy, as I have already done this on my 89):

- vector length
- unit vector (and graph)
- dot product
- cross product
- triple product
- projection
- bound vectors
- check for orthogonal
- check for orthonormal

Well, I could, but I've kind of stopped working on this.  I might continue working on this sometime, though.  Good suggestions, though.

Yeah dot product would be a great addition
There are 10 types of people in this world-- those that can read binary, and those that can't.
