Honors Algebra II Calculators
Before you buy your graphing calculator for this year, we strongly recommend you purchase the new TI-Nspire CX CAS. Ideally we would like for every student to own a TI-Nspire CX CAS, but if you already own a TI-84 or the equivalent, that will be sufficient. Please note that I have a class set of TI-Nspire CX CAS calculators, and we will be using them frequently during class. Students will use either the TI-Nspire CX CAS or TI-84 (I have class sets of both) during assessments.
If you have not purchased a calculator, I strongly encourage you to consider purchasing the TI-Nspire CX CAS as it has several functions that the TI-84 does not, and students will use it throughout their honors math career here at Carmel High School. On the downside, because it is such a new technology it can be hard to find. We do not know of any stores around Carmel that sells them yet, but here are the two best places online we have found. Please make sure it has CAS in the top right corner of the calculator's face before purchasing.
The calculator costs $140 plus $10 shipping and handling.
You want the Texas Instruments Nspire CX N3CAS/CLM/2L1 Graphing Calculator. The price should be around $140 plus shipping.
