Calculator Recommendations


MATH 1010

The Department of Mathematical Sciences strongly recommends that each student in MATH 1010 have a TI-83+, TI-84, or TI-84+ calculator. Students will be at a possible disadvantage on some tests and quizzes without a calculator since use of laptop computers will not be permitted.

MATH 1020 and 2070

The Department of Mathematical Sciences strongly recommends that each student in MATH 1020 and 2070 have a TI-83+, TI-84, or TI-84+ calculator. It will be very difficult to complete tests or assignments without the use of such a calculator. Students in MATH 1020 and 2070 will not be permitted to use a calculator which does symbolic mathematics, such as a TI-89 or TI-92, on tests or quizzes.

MATH 1050 and 1990

The Department of Mathematical Sciences strongly recommends that each student in MATH 1050 and 1990 have a scientific calculator (one including trig and log functions) such as a TI-30XII. This calculator will be used for class work and tests. Use of a graphing calculator, such as a TI-83+, TI-84, or TI-84+, or TI-89, will not be allowed for tests.

MATH 1040, 1060, 1070, and 1080

The Department of Mathematical Sciences strongly recommends that each student in MATH 1040, 1060, 1070, and 1080 have a graphing calculator, such as a TI-83+, TI-84, TI-84+, or TI-89. Students will be expected to use a calculator for homework and classroom exercises. Students will not be permitted to use laptop computers or calculators on exams.

Purchasing Calculators

The Clemson University Bookstore sells the recommended calculators. They are also available from many electronics stores, discount stores, and mail-order companies.
