Math department encouraging students to purchase graphing calcuators now

Summer sales are in full effect. Teachers want families to be able to take advantage of them, especially for a calculator with a high price point. Any new student/students without a calculator enrolled in a high school math class needs to be prepared with a graphing calculator. The following are the recommended calculators: TI- 84 and TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition (no batteries are needed). Other versions of the calculator can be used for math courses. These latest models have features that make it easier to interpret and calculate data. These calculators will be the ones the math department is moving toward. If you decide not to purchase either of these, please ask your teacher about the calculator the first week of school.
