Calculators in the Classroom
For Algebra and Geometry courses, a simply scientific calculator will suffice. However, if a student plans on continuing on to Algebra 2, we recommend that that student purchase the graphing calculator at the beginning of their high school career.
Once a math student reaches Algebra 2, each successive course becomes more calculator-intensive. The standard calculator used in all of our classes from Algebra 2 and beyond is the TI-84 Graphing Calculator .
This calculator can also be used on standardized tests such as the SAT, ACT, and many AP Exams! It is a wonderful investment.
Where to Get A Calculator
The TI-84 may be purchased at the following local stores:
Or if the student prefers, there are a limited number of calculators available for check-out from the library.
