Subject: CFKTEMPS (°C °F K Temperature Converter)

°C °F K Temperature Converter (CFKTEMPS) is a simple program for the TI-83 Plus which converts temperatures between the Fahrenheit, Celsius, and Kelvin temperature scales. It is a heavily modified version of a program called TEMPS by Malcolm Mollison, found on the TI website in the Program Archives. The original program converted temperatures between Fahrenheit, Celsius, Kelvin, and Rankine temperature scales. However, my high school students didn't have any need for conversions to and from the Rankine temperature scale so I have removed all of those conversions from the program. Moreover, the original program provided no way of quitting, short of turning the calculator off and back on again. I have fixed this by adding a quit option.

The original author stated of his program, "Edit only for scientific purposes. Distribute freely." I would extend the same to this modification. I hope this program proves useful to you. If you have any comments or suggestions about it, please feel free to contact me.
