Many of the courses in the Mathematics department require calculators. Below are the requirements and recommendations for specific courses.
For the following courses, a scientific calculator (such as one of the TI30 models) or a graphing calculator (such as the TI83, 84, 85, 86 or the TINspire with TI84 keyboard) is required:

MATH 1530 College Algebra

MATH 1630 Finite Mathematics with Applications

MATH 1730 Mathematics of Finance (no business calculators allowed)

MATH 1830 Elementary Statistics

MATH 2450 Precalculus

MATH 2530 Trigonometry and Analytic Geometry

MATH 2640 Calculus and Analytic Geometry I

MATH 2730 Discrete Mathematics

MATH 2740 Calculus and Analytic Geometry II

MATH 2840 Calculus and Analytic Geometry III

MATH 3630 Differential Equations I

MATH 4030 Statistical Methods with Applications
If you are enrolling in a 1000level course and do not already own a graphing calculator, it is recommended that you wait to purchase one until after the first day of class when an instructor will provide specific calculator requirements for that class.
In remedial courses, MATH 12 and MATH 15, scientific calculators are required. Graphing calculators may not be used during any test or the final exam.
Calculators with Computer Algebra Systems (CAS), such as the TI89, TI92 and TIinspire with CAS keypad, or their equivalent, are not allowed in any math course. In other courses, calculators may be required but there are no specifications as to the type. Individual instructors may restrict the use of any type of calculator in their class.
MATH 12 and 15
A scientific calculator is required for MATH 12 and MATH 15. Some brands are not allowed because of capabilities that interfere with the course objectives. You should carefully check your calculator to make sure you have one on the following approved list:
