This paper presents a package of nine programs for the TI-59 calculator. This package was developed as a solution to two problems. One problem involved expanding and modifying an existing set of programs and a second problem involved developing five distribution approximating programs. The solution to these problems represents a package with considerable capability in computing confidence intervals, performing hypothesis tests and approximating distribution values. The distribution approximations include inverse CDF values for the Normal, Chi-square, Students t and F distributions, which allow the computation of confidence intervals without using tables. The Ti-59 proved to be a useful tool in solving these problems and demonstrated the capability of hand-held programmable calculators. The comprehensive set of user guides included in this programming package provides even the inexperienced user with a step-by-step introduction to this capability. Additionally, the methods used in preparing this programming package are directly applicable to other calculators or computers. Author
