The level of your imagination and how skilled you are at graphing pictures are the keys to creating pictures on your graphing calculator. Create cartoon dogs, flowers or even your favorite character on your calculator. Even if you are not a pro at graphing pictures, you can still create a simple picture using your TI83 or TI83 Plus graphic calculator.
