Any thoughts?
You are right about the standardized test. Anything with a qwerty keyboard isn't
allowed at least at this point. The TI84 silver is an excellent calculator
for use and data collection. I would suggest that you get this calculator;
however, be sure to check what is the most likely calculator the school is going
to use. If the school uses a model below the TI84 silver (i.e. TI83),
still get the 84 silver. It is compatible.
