While it is the district’s endeavor to provide all students with the technological resources for a successful mathematics PARCC administration transition, we strongly recommend that each student purchase their own graphing calculator. The TI-84 calculator will be an integral component during mathematics instruction for students in the Edison Public Schools from Algebra 1 through advanced courses such as AP Calculus and AP Statistics. Students will be able to customize their learning needs, not only during school based instruction, but through practice at home as well. This investment will continue to assist students beyond their high school career well into their college coursework.
The Texas Instruments TI-84+ graphing calculator is the standard for the new mathematics PARCC calculator based questions. The mathematics PARCC test will emulate its use for the Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 courses.
