Calculators
Calculators are strongly recommended in all math courses. Students should bring a calculator to their math class as part of their everyday materials.

Recommended Calculators
TI-30XS Multiview Scientific Calculator - grades 5 and higher
TI-Nspire Graphing Calculator - Algebra and above
See www.tinspire.com or education.ti.com/educationportal/sites/US/productDetail/us_ti30xs_mv.html for more information about each calculator.


Extra Help
Practice does make perfect. If you need extra help in Mathematics, seeing your teacher is always the best option. However, if your schedule does not make this a regular possibility, the National Honor Society does offer tutoring sessions conducted by members of this society. Please see your guidance counselor for the contact information.

Attached is a link to a web site that can serve as additional help for those students who might be struggling in mathematics or science.
