If you need to buy a new calculator, our recommendation is any of the TI-83’s or 84’s. If you do purchase a new calculator, please save the proof of purchase (it is a square of cardboard that says: TI Technology Points/Rewards Program). SMA can use these to acquire free technology for the department.

Thanks to all of you who saved the packaging from your new calculators. We are ordering (free!) a TI-Inspire for the department.
