Graphing Calculators

Graphing Calculators help students plot graphs, solve equations, and perform numerous other tasks with variables.  Research supports the use of graphing calculators to help students develop strategies for problem solving and a deeper appreciation of mathematics.  Research from NAEP has shown that at the 8th grade level frequent use of graphing calculators is associated with greater mathematics achievement.  These calculators are easily programmed by the user.
