What is the best scientific calculator for high school students.
pencil, paper, brain, can't beat them, when they can do the maths using them, then let them learn how to use a calculator.
I think that the TI84+ (Texas Instruments) is best. It will take any student through high school and college math as well.I teach high school math. Students should learn most principles without a calculator, but for some things they are nearly essential. In statistics, the ability of the calculator to do all the drudge work has allowed more teaching and understanding of the statistical principles behind the number crunching. That's what's important!
I'd also have to go with the TI84+, though this could depend on which school you go to. It is a powerful graphing calculator, and has good support. Most students are REQUIRED to have one nowadays. But a calculator is no good to you if you don't know what you're doing, don't rely solely on it.
Since you asked about scientific calculators, not graphing calculators, I've got to go with the TI-30x Multiview. Texas Instruments updates its TI-30 series every few years, and this was a really awesome update. On this calculator, fractions look like fractions, exponents look like exponents, etc. It's the first non-graphing calculator from TI that could do this. It'll also simplify square roots and give you exact values for trig questions (involving radicals, not just decimal answers).
Inside the next sentences through this report we're intending to supply you with a number of guidelines concerning the way to appropriately make use of the fraction calculator. For starters you are going to need to have a calculator equipped with fraction keys if you wish to accomplish this.
Texas Instruments TI-89 Advanced Graphing Calculator ,,you can buy used one for about 70 bucks !!
I agree with what other answerers have said, get a TI 84+ model. The graphing calculators are more powerful, instructive, and useful for advanced math studies than simple scientific calculators. The graphing utility alone will help students understand functions better. But also it has built-in statistics calculations and function integrators good for checking your answers.

A Cincinnati area high school is now going to pay students for showing up to school. Seniors will receive a $25 Visa gift card and $5 put in a savings account. Underclassmen will receive $10 gift card and $5. Should students be paid to attend school? What are your thoughts?

According to author Charles Murray, high school students who are in the bottom 40% percentile of their classes should not even bother to attend college because college courses are too rigiorous and advanced for such students. Do you agree with this premise?

Another day, another school shooting. This time it occurred in Santa Fe, Texas with up to 10 people dead.What's obvious is that these students could not defend themselves. Until all high school students are allowed to bring their own guns to school for self-defense purposes, none of them will ever...
