scanner (capable of scanning and saving to .pdf files) (or smartphone – see this document for details)
scientific calculator (math 9/10)
graphing calculator (20 and 30 level classes)
Calculators may NOT be software/apps on smartphones or computers.
A graphing calculator may be used in math 9/10 instead of the scientific calculator. This would help you become familiar with the calculator required in 20/30 level classes.
The TI-84+ series is recommended, but any graphing calculator from Alberta Education’s list is acceptable.
For Mr. Okimi’s Math classes, the following are required:
Wacom Intuos Draw Graphics Tablet or similar.
In order to help students practice the daily material with teacher supervision, students will be doing example/practice problems during class. This also helps students catch errors or misunderstandings before starting their homework. To help students write efficiently in class, they should use a graphics tablet that lets them write clearly and quickly on the computer. I’ve been using one since I started teaching at PACeS, and it works very well. The tablet linked above should work easily with Windows or Mac computer.
Recently, personal computers with digitizers built in to the touchscreen have become more readily available. This could work in place of a separate digitizer tablet.
