  1. Dd has a Ti-34 scientific calculator that was ACT acceptable that she has been using for math. She was being careless yesterday and dropped it on the floor, damaging the screen. She’s in 9th grade doing Saxon Algebra 2. She needs a calculator, but I don’t know what to get. She’s at the point where a graphing calculator would be helpful, but she can’t use that on the ACT. Which would you buy, or would you buy both?
  2. Do you allow your math student to use a calculator in Saxon Algebra? Why or why not? Thank you! Kim
  3. I am currently working through Saxon Algebra 2 with the plan of starting Saxon Advanced Mathematics sometime around September and I saw mentioned on one of the past threads that a graphing calculator was required. I have looked at a couple of calculators on Amazon and read through the threads that came up for search, and I have narrowed down my list to either TI-84 Plus, TI-83 Plus, or Casio (FX-9750GII-WE). TI-84 Plus or TI-83 Plus Both of them are a bit expensive, but they seem more widespread in regards to getting teacher assistance (I plan on taking statistics and algebra-based physics in fall of 2013). They also have corresponding For Dummies books. My major concern is whether either would be too complicated to work even with the book guide without a constant math teacher nearby (my brief encounter with a TI calculator in public school was like this). Casio (FX-9750GII-WE) I'll admit the main reasons I am considering getting this one is 1) it's nearly half the price of the two above and 2) it's regularly mentioned as being easier or more intuitive...BUT it doesn't appear to have an equivalent guide like For Dummies and I worry that that would make it as difficult as the TIs are without a guide. Just hoping that someone could help me pick from one of these. :)
  4. Just curious. DS11 is finishing up Saxon 7/6 and I've never allowed him to use a calculator. He is very solid in math and knows all of his math facts. At what level do you allow them to have a calculator?
  5. My son is 15 doing Saxon Algebra 1/2 I am seeing that he is starting to use a calculator in his work. Am I supposed to give him points for his work when he is using it? When is a typical time to allow calculators? My husband feels I am being too 'tuff' on my son because I feel a calculator is not needed for simple long division and other easy math problems. When I give him a test he gets frustrated and wants to pull out the calculator because it is too much work, of course I stay firm with my belief that he needs to do it without one until I know he can do it in long form. What can I do, any suggestions please. I am starting to feel I will never get my son out of HS at this rate. To me I see him just being' lazy like' on ALL his subjects he is doing. I can not get him to read or do most of his 2-3 paragraph writings. Unless the work is only fill in the blanks he seems to not want to do anything.
  6. I'm rather curious, how does the AoPS series address the use of calculators? Specifically in Algebra, Pre Calc and Calculus. You can't search through their text books and I haven't seen anything about calculators at all in their excerpts though I could be over looking the mention...
  7. I just heard this last night and would appreciate any opinions/thoughts. Dd will be taking the PSAT in the fall. The math portion will be challenging. Will it be more helpful for her to have a scientific or graphing calculator? Which one, and why? If we plan far enough in advance, she'll have a opportunity to practice using it. Thanks!
  8. Ds is doing block scheduling for Calculus, preparing for the AP AB exam (though I wouldn't mind hearing about materials for the BC exam as well), so we're just getting into this subject... I've researched lots of syllabi online and am pretty overwhelmed. If it was just going through the book with DVD's and two review books it would seem easy, but now the more I look, the more I find.... For example, on some syllabi, there are all these extra problem solving questions and calculus projects, then there are labs and explorations in other places. On the AP site, there are 5 modules and 3 special focus materials - Curriculum Modules Extrema (.pdf/3.0MB)New! Motion (.pdf/2.8MB) Reasoning from Tabular Data (.pdf/1.8MB) Fundamental Theorem of Calculus (.pdf/2.6MB) Functions Defined by Integrals (.pdf/792KB) Special Focus Materials Approximation (.pdf/1.2MB) New! Fundamental Theorem of Calculus (.pdf/2.6MB) Differential Equations (.pdf/663KB) All kinds of related articles and other materials (see here) There are Calculus Labs Can anyone point me to the most important extra activities to accomplish? I'm presuming these AP modules and focus materials are quite important..... What extras have you done? Thanks! Joan
  9. Hello all. Use of and restrictions on the use of calculators are perennial themes here. Jean has a thread going on the College Board regarding restrictions on calculator use in her son's College Math course. Regularly parents ask about which calculators are allowed on standardized tests. Etc. I wanted to weigh in with some new thoughts that I have had regarding the use of graphing calculators of the TI-83 or 84 vintage. I have not fiddled with the new TI-nspire (a name which annoys me) nor do I have personal experience with the more sophisticated calculators that have symbolic manipulators. My son's math work since 8th grade (when he did Algebra) used calculators sparingly. For example, I allowed him to check the graphs he drew by hand with a calculator. I have always allowed a calculator for word problems or science applications where answers are rarely given in exact form but are rounded. Further, we have used "antique" math texts, old Dolcianis, that did not contain calculator applications as the modern books do. Since my son is now studying Calculus using one of the suggested texts for AP courses (Larson), the time seemed right to integrate the use of the calculator into his work. I have ulterior motives as well: prior to this time, my son has used my old TI-85 calculator, something that I bought when he was a baby. The old 85s function a bit differently than the 84 which seems to be a fairly standard educational model these days. The transition is not automatic. I wanted to share our recent experience. The material on limits and continuity in Larson was covered in Dolciani's Analysis book last year. We are revisiting it (always a good idea to look at epsilon/delta proofs more than once) but adding a calculator component. My son is using the graphing calculator and its table function to estimate limits and discover the limitations of technology. Further, one does not find every feature and application of the calculator overnight. I purposely assign problems that give him the opportunity to explore certain calculator features. Larson does a good job of labeling problems that are to be done with a graphing utility. I should note that the calculator applications do not form a majority of his homework problems--most of the Larson problems do not require any technological aids. Warning: calculator instruction manuals are rarely user friendly. In fact, my son just went out for a long walk after a rather frustrating experience with his device. An application was accidentally turned on by his mother (oops) and it took a bit of work to figure out how to turn it off. I am left with instructions not to touch his calculator again. Snort! Jane
