Wabbitemu creates a Texas Instruments graphing calculator right on your Android device, Windows desktop, or Mac desktop. Wabbitemu supports the TI-73, TI-81, TI-82, TI-83, TI-83 Plus, TI-83 Plus Silver Edition, TI-84 Plus, TI-84 Plus Silver Edition, TI-85, and TI-86. Fast and convenient, Wabbitemu allows you to always have your trusty calculator with you. Because Wabbitemu is an emulator, the calculator it creates will act exactly like the real thing.
Wabbitemu, like all emulators, requires a ROM image. Wabbitemu includes an easy to use setup wizard that will help you create a ROM image for your TI.
Frequently Asked Questions:
1. How do I bring up the menu?
You can bring up the menu by swiping from the left edge of the screen, or pressing the menu key (if your device has one).
2. How do I disable vibration when I tap on a button?
Open the menu and click on settings. Under the ‘Skin’ category unselect ‘Vibrate on keypress’
3. How do I load apps like PlySmlt2 or Inequalz?
To load any file to your calculator you need to first download it to your SD card or internal storage on your device. You can find the official TI applications for the 84 Plus (non color) available here: http://education.ti.com/en/us/software/search/ti-84-plus-family-ti-83-plus-family#view=math-apps. Once you have downloaded the app to your device open Wabbitemu. Swipe from the left edeg of the screen to bring up the menu, and select ‘Load file’. Find the file you just downloaded in the list and select it. The file will be sent to your calculator. Apps for the 83+ and 84+ calcs will end in *.8xk. Apps for the 84+CSE will end in *.8ck or *.8xk.
4. I’m missing fraction options when I press Alpha+F1! How do I get these fraction options?
Fraction options (and the rest of the Alpha+FN menus) are only available on OS 2.55 MP. Wabbitemu allows you to download both 2.43 and 2.55 MP. You can check your OS version by hitting ‘2nd’ then ‘+’. Then press enter to go to the about screen. If it not 2.55 MP or 2.53 MP you will need to upgrade.
To upgrade you will need to recreate your ROM by going through the setup wizard again. The setup wizard is runnable if you bring up the menu by swiping from the left edge of the screen. Then select ‘Re-run setup wizard’. As you go through the setup make sure you have selected OS 2.55 MP on the OS selection screen.

I use it to teach algebra to my students. Great way for students to SEE what equivalence looks like. Most students intuitively understand where two graphs intersect but few connect the equations to this idea. Graphing allows them to see this.
I created a few TIbasic programs which I uploaded to my WABBIT emulator and almost everything went great. However, every occurrence that involved the L1 list was mistakenly converted to r5. So I had to go through every program and fix this mistake. At this point, that was the only upload issue I found. But overall, I LOVE the WABBIT emulator and would recommend it for any math teacher.
Learning curve is steep just because there are so many features on the calculator that it takes time to learn…but that’s a good thing!
Wabbit emulator is a great easy way to access any TI-Calculator on any device. It’s quick, easy to install, works on all operating systems (Android, ios, pc, and mac) and is customizable. You provide the TI-ROM of you choice and create that calcultor on you phone or computer. Very hand for any student or teacher. The best of all it’s free, providing you already have the ROM. Must have for any math student
