Students will be using graphing calculators in mathematics courses such as Algebra I, Algebra II, Precalculus, Calculus, and Statistics. Students are not required to purchase calculators. However, if a student and/or parent chooses to make the investment, please note that the TI-84 plus is the calculator that is used in class and the one students will be instructed how to use. The calculator will be used throughout high school and most likely college, depending on the courses. Each teacher has enough calculators for every student to use in class. Since students are using graphing calculators during class, and during some units more than others, there might be times when they will need to use a graphing calculator to complete a homework assignment. If this is the case, students can use the online graphing calculator links below to to complete their assignments. If students are not able to access these websites at home, they should see their teacher to sign out a calculator to use during study hall, for the night, or possibly for a longer period of time based on course needs.
Teachers may recommend some of these sites over others depending on the nature of the course and the mathematics that students are using the website for. If there is a specific site that should be used for a specific course or assignment, the teacher will let the class know.
