CALCULATORS FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL MATH 

Calculators for C2.0 Math 6, C2.0 Math 7, and C2.0 Math 8

We strongly recommend that students have a scientific calculator that can perform all operations with fractions. Examples of calculators that perform fraction operations are the Texas Instruments TI-30Xa, TI-30X IIs, and the TI-34 II.
Students in IM and C2.0 Math 8 must also have calculators that perform these options. It is recommended that if a student is enrolled in C2.0 IM that they consider investing in a graphing calculator in preparation for Algebra 1 (see below).

Calculators for C2.0 Algebra 1 and C2.0 Honors Geometry (highly recommended for C2.0 IM)  
(highly recommended for IM)

Students in these classes should have a graphing calculator of their own. Recommended calculators are the Texas Instruments TI-83, TI-83 Plus, TI-84 or the TI-84 Plus. These will not be supplied for students during class.

Graphing calculators are necessary for the student to demonstrate mastery of the mathematics curriculum, beginning with Algebra 1. A graphing calculator is not needed before Algebra 1. Students are encouraged to buy their own graphing calculators to use during Algebra 1 and subsequent math courses. If you are unable to purchase one for your child, the school will have some available for students to borrow. A deposit will be required and students who borrow a graphing calculator will be given a financial obligation if the calculator is lost or damaged (the obligation will be for the amount not covered by the deposit). If your child needs to borrow a graphing calculator, please email Heather_A_Sweeney@mcpsmd.org.
