Calculator Info - Integrated Algebra (Regents Classes)

All regents math classes use graphing calculators. The TI-82, TI-83, TI-83 Plus, TI-84 Plus, TI-84 Plus Silver, and TI-NSpire (NEW) all fit the requirement. The TI-82 and regular TI-83 are no longer available for purchase. The TI-84 (Plus and Plus Silver), and TI-nSpire come equipped with a USB port which makes it very easy to plug into a home computer and download updates and applications. The TI-83 Plus can also be updated, but in a less convenient fashion. These models cost between $70 and $150. The older discontinued models (TI-82 and regular TI-83) are usable, but can not be updated or anything like the new 83, 84, or nSpire. Perhaps an older sibling or parent may have one of these around from previous use and that would suffice for our class, but these older calculators should not be purchased if found in stores.

Regarding the new TI-nSpire, it comes in several varieties and has different keyboards depending on the model you choose. To be safe we suggest a TI-84, not an nSpire, but if you want to try it out go to http://education.ti.com and learn more about it.

A regular scientific calculator is not needed for the Regents Algebra classes, DO NOT BUY ONE OR BRING ONE TO CLASS.

This graphing calculator will definitely be used all four years of high school and at least one year in college, it is an necessary investment.

*Should purchasing be a problem, have your son or daughter see the teacher in class privately.
