Parents and students:  Please make sure to read through the Syllabus.  There is lots of pertinent information, including the supply list for class.  Please get the supplies needed as soon as possible. 
 
Supplies:
    TI-84 or TI-83 graphing calculator    
    A notebook or binder with pockets for note-taking, storing loose papers, and staying organized
    Graph paper and notebook paper
    Small 6" ruler 
    Pencils  (I strongly suggest mechanical pencils, .07 lead, spare erasers/lead)
    Colored pens (red, pink, purple, or green) for note-taking and grading work 
    EXPO dry-erase markers (4-pack, large size, black or assorted colors)
    1 or 2 highlighters (any color)
         
Calculator:
I will be giving assignments that require the use of a graphing calculator from time to time.  I have a classroom set for students to use while in my room.  Keep in mind that this calculator will be necessary in this class and in future math classes both in high school and college.  These calculators may be purchased from local stores (WalMart, Best Buy, HEB, Office Depot, Office Max, and Target) and should cost around $100 depending on the model.  Please buy either the TI-83 or TI-84.  I recommend the TI-84.
 
      Thanks,  Mr. B.
