Additional Course Materials
A graphing calculator is needed for this class. The TI-83 and TI-84 families of calculators are recommended. Please note the following information:
- The instructor will demonstrate calculator skills on those models and will make use of APPs provided in the TI-83 and 84 calculator and will provide students with a special program for those calculators to automate some calculations.
- Any special calculator programs used during the quarter are provided only for the TI-83 and TI-84 families of calculators; programs can not be provided for other calculator models or brands.
- If a student chooses to use some other model or brand of calculator, he/she is solely responsible for independently learning how to use it to fit the needs of this class
- If you are buying a new calculator for this class and if you intend to also take Math 12: (1) the TI-83+ is less expensive and does everything needed for Math 11 BUT (2) the TI-84+ is better has better options for display of equations to look in the calculator as they appear on your written work This is helpful in Math 11, but is even more helpful in Math 12. (The TI-83+ is limited in options for how to display equations on the screen.)
