About Graphing Calculators in Mathematics & Science Classes in the Fair Lawn Public Schools (Grades 8-12)
TI-Nspire CX full color graphing calculator
We strongly encourage students of the Fair Lawn schools to purchase their own calculators. Calculators have become an integral component of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) programs throughout our schools. We want your children to thrive in school and to succeed in their studies both here in Fair Lawn and in their future endeavors.
We believe that students must become comfortable with technology since it offers them a means to explore problem solving, concept development, pattern recognition, data analysis, and numerous other key skills that can help keep them excited about and interested in learning. Technology enables students to spend a greater amount of time in mathematics and science class interpreting data rather than collecting it.
We also recognize, however, that using technology in the classroom is not a substitute for mastery of basic skills. Indeed we continue to stress building every student’s fundamental skills in mathematics, science, and other core subjects.
We firmly believe using handheld technology in the classroom gives our students a way to explore ideas and visualize concepts in greater depth than ever before. In math and in many science classes, we will be using Ti-Nspire CX graphing calculators. Used appropriately, this graphing technology from Texas Instruments can help lead to better comprehension and mastery of concepts and their real-world applications. This technology interfaces with Vernier data collection equipment used in science and mathematics classes and expanding into our technology education program. This kind of cross-curricular learning is critical to ongoing success as your child grows and develops academically. For these reasons, the amount of exposure your child will have to this type of technology will continue to increase.
Although we will be providing some for the use in the classroom, we encourage each student to have his or her own personal calculator. Here are some benefits we see in each child owning a calculator:
• With a personal calculator, your child will be able to continue exploring concepts after class, at his or her own pace, and do homework the same way it is taught in class.

The TI-Nspire CX can be purchased during August “Back to School Sales” at your local Office Supply store for the approximate cost of $135.

Remember to save your Proof of Purchase and turn it in to you math teacher so our school can earn free educational technology and teaching materials.
Давай "Скачать песни в вк"оставим эту тему, сказал я.
Я наблюдал за ними двое солидных "Арию скачать мп3"мужчин, у "My little pony игра скачать"обоих в лице что-то от хищника, "Скачать мобильном сканер"они прихлебывали чай и рассуждали об экзотических цветах, "Толковый словарь русского языка скачать ожегова"которые выращивал Тальбот, о том, каково им будет "Музыка прослушать и скачать без регистрации"в этом "Black eyed peas my humps скачать"климате, даже в доме.
Мне были представлены убедительные доказательства, что "Mp3 лезгинок скачать"это правда.
Потом он посоветовал мне съездить куда-нибудь.
Лучше двигаться, чем оставаться в неизвестности.
