Benefits of checking out a calculator from the McKinney Boyd Library:
o Free to student unless lost or stolen (requires a signed parent permission slip)
o We have the TI 84 plus available for check out.
o Calculator will have current operating system
o Student shows responsibility by “borrowing” the calculator and returning when finished using
o Student may keep the same calculator until they graduate from Boyd or leave our campus
(students are required to renew the calculator each spring)
Purchasing your own calculator:
o Student owns the calculator and can download personal programs to the operating system. They can keep their personal calculator updated with a system that they can download from their teacher
o Student can choose to purchase a TI Inspire instead of the TI 84 plus, (more helpful for Calculus)
o Student can keep and take to college
o Student shows responsibility by owning and keeping track of the calculator
o Calculator costs vary depending on model, age and where you purchased. You can find second hand calculators on Ebay, Craig’s List, and garage sale for a fraction of the retail sales price. Don’t purchase any calculator that has been etched with a school serial number or school information on it!
