Subject:   Using TI-84 in Math A classroom
Author: Suzanne
Date: Aug 28 2004
In the Math Forum's Teacher2Teacher service a teacher asked:

"Is it appropriate for math teachers to allow use of the TI 84+ Silver in a Math
A classroom? This model has factory-loaded applications that display the
formulas for area of geometric figures (rectangles, circles, triangles,
trapezoids, and parallelograms) and the derivations of these. Of course, most
students don't know these applications are there because they don't bother to
read the manual that comes with the calculator. On the other hand, this
calculator, like the TI 83+ Silver, has a much faster speed in graphing, which I
feel is an asset to students."

Are there any Math A (high school course for students not ready yet to take
Algebra 1) teachers with an opinion to share with this teacher?

Thanks,
Suzanne
