Woodward Mathematics Summer Assignment and Calculator Information 2022


Dear Students and Families,

We are looking forward to continuing growing our student mathematicians in during the 2022-2023 academic year.  This summer, students should continue their mathematics learning and practice over the summer by completing the appropriate Khan Academy's Get Ready Courses.  The website is listed below, and you can select the course that matches your grade or subject, i.e. entering 6th Grade, entering Algebra II, etc.  If you are entering 8th grade, please complete the get ready for Algebra I course.

We are also asking families to purchase a calculator over the summer listed here to help students and teachers explore mathematic concepts together when they are in class.  Below are the required calculators by grade (6th Grade does not need a calculator).
  • Grades 7 and 8: TI-30XIIS scientific calculator
  • Grades 9, 10m 11 and 12: TI-Nspire CX II CAS* graphing calculator
The TI-30XIIS or TI-Nspire CX II CAS can be purchased at stores such as Staples or online and many stores offer sales on these calculators in July.

Graphing calculators are a wonderful learning tool for math and science.  They help students visualize math concepts and use it to create more accurate models and representations of real-world situations.  It is important for each student to learn and be familiar wtih all the functions of their graphing calculators in class and at home.  Graphing calculators are required on many exams such as the SAT, AP Calculus, AP Chemistry, AP Physics, etc.  The TI-Nspire CX II CAS Model comes with a Computer Algebra System that is especially useful in AP Calculus.  A comparison of the various features of the graphing calculators can be found on the Texas Instruments website.

We hope you are having a happy, healthy and restful summer vacation.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Jessica McNamara by email.
