**May I use
a calculator?**

For these classes, **NO **(except
for certain lessons...see note 2)**: **
**Common Core Math 7, **

**Common Core Math 8 **

**NOTE
1:** At home, a calculator might sometimes be appropriate
for double-checking an answer before going to the back of the
book--but be careful not to get dependent on it! In fact,
it's really not necessary for anything until we get to certain
topics near the end of the year. It's far better to redo a
calculation on paper to be sure operations were done correctly,
and you get the same answer the second time.

**NOTE
2:** There might be some lessons during the year where a
calculator is needed. If that happens, the teacher will
let you know when you are allowed to use it, either on homework
or on tests.

For these classes: **YES:**

**Integrated Math I, **

Integrated Math I Advanced,

**Integrated
Math III ***(need a graphing
calculator)***, **

Integrated Math III Advanced *(need a graphing
calculator)***,**

PreCalculus Honors *(need a graphing
calculator)***.**

**NOTE
1:**
It's better
for you on tests to bring your home calculator, so you're using
something you're used to and know where the second functions
are, etc. If you don't bring yours from home, you're
welcome to use the loaner calculators that I have in my
classroom.

**NOTE 2:** **DURING
TESTS, YOU MAY **__NOT__ USE A CELL PHONE CALCULATOR. By district policy, all phones
are to be turned off in classrooms during class times (which for
Mt. Everest includes study groups and testing times).
