What calculator do I need???

All students need a scientific calculator.  If you plan to purchase a new one (or have not yet purchased), we recommended the TI-30XS Multiview.  In high school, all students will need a graphing calculator and we will begin using them in 8th grade.  If you choose to purchase one this year, we recommend the TI-84 plus Silver Edition.  See links below for purchase options (we do not recommend a specific store, just providing links with to provide you more detailed pictures and information).

TI-30XS Multiview (approx $12-15)

TI- 84 Plus Silver edition (approx $120-$140, if selecting color screen)

If you purchase ANY Texas Instruments calculator, please save the TI TECH POINTS and send in with your student.  Our school can order free items with accumulated points!
