Recently, something finally occurred to me when I was looking for ideas for my next “big project”. I realized that something that I had never seen before, and yet feasibly possible, was a graphics program for displaying MathPrint equations on the graph screen. So far, I have come up with 2 algorithms (using text commands for the main text and numbers, and Pxl commands for simple touching up) for doing this. One is the summation notation, which I can now display at any given row and column within the graph screen. Another is a matrix/vector bracket that can fit 2 rows of a matrix or 2 elements of a column vector. My next step is to optimize the algorithms such that I can input the amount of rows in this matrix (or vector) as a number n and have it be able to extend the bracket height such that I could snugly fit n rows of numbers inside of it. Does anybody know a good way to do this? Once I figure out this one thing, I can finish up the rest within a few weeks and give a download link to the program here. It will have documentation so that all you will have to do is input the non-MathPrint equation as a string as well as a few other style/redirect information variables and excecute the program and it should do the rest. This is being programmed on a TI-84 Plus CE, but once I figure this part out I can easily translate the code to support earlier calculators.

MathPrint renderer for program output

Summary:

This explains an idea I had for a program used to display the output of a calculation-based program in MathPrint, even if the calculator does not support MathPrint.
