Help!  I can't seem to get my TI-84 SE out of scientific notation mode - answers to a simple problem such as 0.002 x 0.003 give me 6.000000000E-6  

While I understand the nine zeroes (I had set that), I don't want the E-6 business to be there - how to rid my work of that forever?!

You should be able to press "MODE"

at the top of the screen use your left mouse thingy to select "NORMAL"

are you unable to access the "MODE" menu
I had tried the MODE button, but nothing changed.  Maybe something is wrong with the calculator?
I just called TI and they said all their graphing calc go to SCI after after 3 zeros and 1 digit to the right of the decimal. Not convensed but, they did tell me if I use a TI 30xiis then it will work a I want it to. I do have one of those laying around the house.
Go to mode and go down to float if your marker is on a number move it over to float and click float
