Degrees and Certifications:
I have some of this stuff, but educational degrees do a very poor job of defining me.

I also recommend a graphing calculator for this class, however, it is not a requirement. Honestly, a dollar-store scientific calculator will work just fine. A great calculator choice that is generally available for less than $15 is a Texas Instruments TI-30XIIS. The TI-84CE is the graphing calculator I would recommend if it is within a family's means. They regularly price out at around $130, but they can be found in early August for as little as $90. Cell phones may be allowed if used responsibly during class. Only calculators will be allowed during assessments. If a student wishes to use a calculator during an assessment, they will have to supply their own. I do not have a class set of calculators for this level.
AP-Stats students and parents. This class is taught with the singular goal of passing the AP Statistics test in the spring with an emphasis on reading, assessing, strategizing and solving statistical problems in context. It will require time studying and working outside of class, especially if a student intends to take the AP test. I encourage all students who take my class to take the AP test, however it is not mandatory that they do so. Concurrent credit is not offered by me. A graphing calculator will be required for this class. I have a class set, but I recommend students have their own as I do not have loaner calculators. The TI-84CE is the calculator we'll be using in class. If you do not have a graphing calculator, I suggest purchasing one in August. Many large stores discount them in the early weeks of August. Sadly these discounts always pass before the start of school. It does not have to be a TI-84. A TI-83, 89, Inspire or Casio graphing calculators have all been used successfully in the past. I may be less able to assist with these choices however. Find notes and assignment information attached to Powerschool.
