Math 2 Honors/Math 3 Honors
· A graphing calculator is necessary for the course! The TI-83, TI-84, or TI-89 family of graphing calculators is preferred as they are referenced in the text, will be used in class, and are most familiar to the instructor. There will be a few available for use in class. Additionally, a graphing calculator emulator is preinstalled on student laptops.
NOTE: these are not required to be purchased, and students will find them useful in math classes throughout their high school and college careers.
· Notebook; preferred is a quad-ruled composition notebook
· Pencil (No.2 or mechanical)
· Colored Pencils or Pens (recommended)
Classroom Expectations are simple.
