    Use Calculator on Alg 2 Final?

    Are students permitted to use calculators on Alg 2 final? And Alg 1 for that matter.
    Thanks!

    Hi Angel,
    I let my students use a scientific calculator on the algebra2 final (but not a graphing calculator; they need to solve the matrices "by hand", not by plugging into a graphing calculator).

    I also let my students use a scientific calculator on the algebra1 final, but it is not really necessary for the algebra1 final. Allowing the use of a calculator provides students a security blanket when they are trying to do their best, not to have to worry about pesky arithmetic errors.
