    The Mathematics Department recognizes the use of calculators as a valuable tool for learning in the classroom, and calculators will be used extensively for class work and homework in all courses. 
    While no specific brands are endorsed, there are restrictions on the type of calculators allowed on classroom tests and final exams. Calculators that do operations with variables, such as the TI-89, TI-92, and HP49G, will not be permitted to be used on district final exams, even though they may be used on some nationwide tests. Teachers have discretion as to whether these types may be used for particular classroom-related purposed.
