These calculators are powerful problem-solving tools with features for storing, graphing, and analyzing functions, useful for learning advanced math concepts in Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus. Students use these calculators on standardized tests, such as the ACT, SAT, and PARCC assessments, so students should be comfortable working with the calculators. We require students to provide their own computers, so we do not ask them to also purchase these calculators.
We are currently sharing the calculators we already have between classrooms and teachers, which means we have to be mindful about when we use the calculators and when we offer tests. We do not always have enough for each student to work with their own calculator, so students have to share. We barely had enough calculators for the recent standardized tests, and our population is growing.
