Re: Integrated Algebra and Calculators?

To be an acceptable Graphing Calculator for NYS Math Regents exams it must adhere to the following rules:
No communication between devices Memory and Programs must be disabled or reset No symbolic manipulation meaning if you try sq rt 8 and it gives you 2 rad 2 it would not be acceptable.
It isn't fair to students to take the course with one device and have the rug pulled out from under them with another.
Hope this helps.

The algebra regent was administered today and my students were given Casio calculators to use instead if TI84 calculators,the ones I used in the classroom. My kids had no clue how to use it but people are telling me that it was completely legal since all the school has to do was provide each student a calculator. Is this true? I feel like this is highly unfair and set my kids up for failure. Please let me know. I want to bring it up to my principal but I don't think I have any leg to stand one. > > Thank you for any response. > ******************************************************************* > * To unsubscribe from this mailing list, email the message > * "unsubscribe nyshsmath" to majordomo@mathforum.org > * > * Read prior posts and download attachments from the web archives at > * http://mathforum.org/kb/forum.jspa?forumID=671 > ******************************************************************* ******************************************************************* * To unsubscribe from this mailing list, email the message * "unsubscribe nyshsmath" to majordomo@mathforum.org * * Read prior posts and download attachments from the web archives at * http://mathforum.org/kb/forum.jspa?forumID=671 *******************************************************************
