The graphing calculator is useful when approaching a problem with a graphical approach. Likewise, algebraic justifications are just as important. Why not test in two parts (as the AP Calculus does)? Give a non-calculator portion followed by a calculator portion. In fact, the same problem could sometimes be placed in both portions.
