What is an 89Z file?
An 89Z file is a program that can be run on a Texas Instruments TI-89 graphing calculator. Typically, it contains a utility or video game. Users install 89Z files using Texas Instruments TI Connect.
Students use TI-89 series graphing calculators, including the base and Titanium models, to plot functions, analyze numerical data, solve complex equations, and often, play video games. 89Z files contain a program, such as a graphing utility, drawing program, or video game, that students can install on their TI-89 calculators.
Teachers sometimes distribute 89Z files to students, so students can install and use the programs they contain. Students may also download 89Z files from online TI graphing calculator program repositories, such as Cemetech.com.
How to open an 89Z file
You can use Texas Instruments TI Connect (Windows, Mac) to install the program an 89Z file contains on a TI-89 calculator. For detailed instructions, refer to your calculator's documentation.
If your 89Z file is packaged with 89Y files, be sure to send those files to your calculator along with the 89Z file. Some programs are split across 89Z and 89Y files; they will run correctly only if all their files are installed on a calculator.
