YES! All math courses with the exception of Geometry use graphing calculators throughout the year.
This is the first year that we are requiring Algebra 1 students to have a graphing calculator. The math teachers recommend a Texas Instrument brand: TI-83, TI-83 Plus, TI-84, or TI-84 plus. These calculators are powerful, durable tools that will be used throughout our high school courses and into college level courses. Although other brands are available the teaching staff is fluent in the functions and formats of the TI brand and uses a TI computer software to demonstrate the calculator use and to present and discuss problems in class.
