The TI-83 calculators, which are manufactured by Texas Instruments, feature screens that are big and colorful, and the math problems can be displayed on smart boards, thanks to the instruments TI-83 help. Below the sponsorship program, a donor does not have to buy the entire package. 

A Bronze sponsorship at $90 will purchase one TI-83 Calculator; a $180 Silver sponsorship will purchase 2, a $450 Gold sponsorship will purchase 5; a $900 Platinum sponsorship will purchase 10 and a $2,100 Diamond sponsorship will purchase one TI-Navigator System.
