try this(untested code!):
number = None
data = raw_input('Type something: ')
try: number = int(data)
except: data = data.split() # assume a string
if number: # user entered a number
if number == 1: print 'circle'
elif number == 2: print 'another'
else: # user entered words
if data.lower() == 'circle': print 'circle'
else: print 'user entered ', data
Notice that to use ithe input as a number you have to
convert the raw input characters to a number (using int)
To get the individual words we can use split() which by
default splits a string into the individual words.
Is that the kind of thing you mean?
I've no idea what a Ti83 is BTW. :-)
