I loved seeing some of my students at Freshman Orientation on Thursday. I look forward to this new school year and am excited for all my CHS "mathaletes" to dive into Algebra. See you all on Monday.
Recommended Supply List - Algebra I
- 3-ring binder (preferably 2 inch)
- Plenty of loose-leaf notebook paper
- Pencils Required
- Tab dividers (not required but helpful)
Students are not required to purchase a calculator. They will have access to one in class. However if you are interested in purchasing your own personal graphing calculator, here is some helpful information:
- What type?
TI-84+ or TI-84+ Silver Edition (more memory for apps); TI-84+ CE (more memory & color display)
- Where to buy NEW?
Wal-Mart, Target, Office Depot, Office Max, or the Texas Instrument website. Costs can range from $85.00 to $150.00.
- Where to buy USED?
EBay, Amazon, Craig’s List, Study Masters. Costs vary depending on where you purchase. I have seen them as low as $40.00.
Although graphing calculators are expensive, know that your child will use it for all four years of high school and throughout college as well.
