We strongly recommend that all students get their own TI-83 or TI-84 graphing calculator. Your child will use the calculator throughout high school, and many during college. If your child does not have a calculator, one may be checked out from the math department on a first come/first served basis. The calculator requires 4-AAA batteries, which are not provided. The calculator also comes with a front cover and battery cover. The calculator must be returned with all included pieces, and in working order, to avoid a replacement fee. The calculator must be returned with the front cover, battery cover, and with no cracked screens or other damages. The replacement fee for all calculators is $120.
Please have your child speak with his or her teacher about the starting date for checking out calculators. The math department has a schedule of when the classes will be able to check out calculators at the beginning of each semester and the students should check those back in at the end of each semester in order to avoid a fee. Thank you for your understanding with this matter.
