Pre-AP Calculators for next school year

All students will need graphing calculators for next school year.  Now is the time to start keeping an eye out for them on Craigslist, Nextdoor, Ebay etc. as students graduate from college or HS and no longer need them.  You can also buy them at Target, Amazon, Best Buy, etc. They will go on sale late summer with the back-to-school supplies. The school has a handful for all of secondary, and I do mean a handful, so please don't rely on your student just using a school calculator.  I highly encourage you to invest in a calculator as they will use it all the way through HS and possibly college.  I highly recommend the plus CE versions as they have extra features such as colored graphing, which enables students to differentiate between different equations and graphs. TI-83 or TI-84 are the calculators you are looking for.

Students have all chosen five learning goals to focus on for their spiral review.  They will have time in class each day during their rotations to complete the practice.  Part of their review includes review videos. If your student does not yet have their own pair of headphones to use at school, it would be a great idea to get them a pair to keep in their backpacks.
