    Calculator Recommendation:

    No cell phones will be used as calculators in this class, so you need to have a calculator to use. 

     

     
    The class uses the TI-84.      TI-84 School Edition      TI-84 Plus
    The TI-83 will also function quite nicely if you have the older version. 
    There are limited number of calculators available for use in the classroom.
    The school library also has a limited number of calculators to check out each semester.
    These are available at most retail stores for $89-$120. 
     
    THESE ARE NOT REQUIRED FOR THE CLASS! 
    If you don't get one of these graphing calculators, you need to at least get a TI-30X IIS.
     
     
     
    There are many free online calculators that can be used for a variety of applications. You can access these at home.
