Calculator Policy for Algebra I and Geometry
The requirements for use of a calculator for the new state mathematics tests are listed in the policy available online the Ohio policy differs from the PARCC policy.
The allowable calculators for the new state algebra I and geometry tests are graphing calculators with functionalities consistent with TI-84 or similar models. PARCC states that students may not use calculators that are allowable for lower grade levels on the new state algebra I and geometry (integrated mathematics I and II); Ohio policy states that students may use calculators for lower grade levels.
