Descriptive STATISTICS on the TI-83

Introduction: standard deviation:  a statistical calculation of the difference between an average and the individual values included in the average, or a measure of the dispersion of a set of data from its mean.
  The deviations of scores about the mean of a distribution is the basis for most of the statistical tests we will learn. Since we are measuring how much a set of scores is dispersed about the mean we are measuring variability. We can calculate the deviations about the mean and express it as variance or standard deviation.
       Standard Deviation      Variance
  STDDEV takes as input either a list (list) of values or summary statistics (data) values, (n = sample size, Σx = sum of items, Σx² = sum items sq) and calculates the values (x = mean, S² = variance, and S = Standard Deviation [Std Dev]).
  Note: This program is in TI-BASIC and can be entered into the calculator by the calculator keyboard. Do not enter the line numbers, they are for reference only. The example programs below are for testing the program. If you get the values listed, the program was entered correctly. If not, check the listing and correct it. The program has been checked and tested.
  Note: -> is the [STO->] on the calculator keyboard.
  Note: This program uses the TI-83 built in formulas: dim; sum; mean; variance; stdDev.
