    Calculator Usage: Calculator usage varies from one mathematics course to another, depending upon the course objectives and content. A substantial portion of the mathematics curriculum encourages and promotes the use of calculators to enhance understanding of the concepts. A scientific calculator is required in all math classes (TI-30XIISmultiview recommended); a graphing calculator and a scientific calculator are required in all classes above Geometry. The department recommends a TI-84 or T1-NSpire if the student is purchasing a graphing calculator.
