Here is what you should have answered to the question about buying a graphing calculator. Please post this since every parent should know this but Shen keeps this information quiet except if a student asks the math teacher. NY State requires that public schools provide graphing calculators, just like textbooks. Our taxes pay for them. “The State Education Department requires the use of calculators for intermediate and high school level mathematics and science assessments. To the extent that calculators are a necessary part of the educational program, the school district must provide them. Under no circumstances should students be charged for a calculator or otherwise required to purchase one in order to participate in an educational program.” http://www.p12.nysed.gov/mgtserv/free_appropriate/calculator_qa.html
