We hope your summer break has been restful and relaxing! As you get ready for school this year, we wanted to let you know about class supplies needed for Algebra 1 (Math 8).
5 tab dividers for binder
1 subject notebook (if possible, invest in a MEAD or similar type brand with poly cover)
Loose leaf paper for homework
PENCILS, PENCILS, PENCILS
Calculator: TI-84+ graphing calculator is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED (It is also the recommended calculator for math classes in the high school)
PLEASE NOTE - The TI-84+ graphing calculator is a huge investment (list price is about $130), but it is durable and will be used throughout high school and college. It is PERMITTED to use the TI-84+ on standardized testing (PSSAs, Keystones, SATs and ACTs). As of August 9th weekly ads, the TI-84+ color version is ON SALE at Target and Walmart for $85. This is the cheapest price all year!
If you have questions or concerns, please email one of us and we'll get back to you as soon as we can!
