We are officially into week two of the 2014-2015 school year. My boys are really getting the hang of high-school. Meeting with counselors, adding and dropping electives and bringing me home “the official list” of school supplies.
They both attend different schools are in different grades but both are required to have a graphic calculator. One, for Algebra and the other for advanced Drafting class. School hasn’t changed much from the time I was attending. We were also required to have a good graphic calculator for physics. Whenever I think of a calculator TI Texas Instruments is the first brand that comes to mind.
