Hello and Welcome
We would like to recommend to ALL 8th graders that you should consider purchasing a graphing calculator that can be used in 8th grade math, Math I, as well as in High School and College classes. We are requiring this of our 8th grade Math I classes. If your family already owns a TI-83, you do not need to purchase a new calculator. We recommend the TI-84+ or TI-Nspire CX. The TI-Nspire CX is a bit more costly than the TI-84+, but it is more modern technology with color menu driven screens and more detailed display. (Do NOT purchase the TI-Nspire CAS, it is not allowed for testing!) We would like to note that the high school math teachers are most familiar with the TI-84+ calculators if you want to consider that in your decision for purchasing a calculator.
