My oldest is going into her junior year this year as well as co-enrolling in a medical program at the vo-tech. She has huge plans to be a doctor and has always been in advanced math. So this year she is taking trig and chemistry plus some math classes at the vo-tech and we decided it was time to look for a great graphing calculator. Of course, when you think of calculators my mind goes to Texas Instruments. They have the best and since we know she will be taking a lot of math and science classes from here on out we wanted to get her a quality calculator that will last her through the rest of her schooling.
We found the TI-84 Plus CE and it had all the features she needed for the rest of her high school career and will help her through college too.
- 30% lighter and thinner than earlier generation TI-84 Plus models
- Vibrant backlit color screen
- TI Rechargeable Battery
- Available in a variety of fun colors
- Pre-loaded Apps and Images
- MathPrint™ functionality
I love the color display on it. I remember using graphing calculators when I was in school and they never had color displays. So I thought that was so neat. We are still learning all the features especially since she hasn’t gotten in the classroom with it yet but it can do just about anything. She even saw that you can add a background to it if you want! That’s so neat.
It is super slim. I also remember those graphing calculators being really big and bulky in the past. I was shocked at how small and thin it was. You can easily fit it in your backpack pocket like a regular calculator.
We will also be taking the ACT this year so I was happy to know it was approved for testing.
