?! This is last century's tech. If schools don't supply these there is a problem in your school district...and they should at least have some to borrow. Otherwise there are apps and ROMs that do the same functions as these calculators.
Wow. What a statement.

Dang...I feel like now maybe I raged on old tech (or likely I had a flashback of losing all my money in the subway in the D.War game that we used to play on these). I don't think parents should be buying these for back-to-school if they don't have to. I get there are some that don't allow kids to have phones/tablets/etc...but it's like giving an abacus to a 5th grader (when they should clearly know how to use a computer by that age).
Unfortunately you have no idea as to the requirements of many schools and standardized testing.

Rage all you want against the old technology being too expensive, but graphing calculators are pretty mandatory for a lot of kids and this is a good price. Thanks OP.

Also, people donate these to the schools because they simply don't need to use them again after high school. You sure aren't allowed to bring these into tests in Universities...my experience.
What are you talking about? They're definitely used in universities.

These are mandatory for almost all public schools in my state. Had to shell out the $100 last year for my daughter. She better still have it for this year and in clean working order or she will be attending 11th grade bald.

Fun fact: I bought the TI-84 Plus Silver edition when it came out in 2004 for $130. I saw it in Target for $99 back in November '16. The TI-84 Plus, which was $110 back in 2004, was $89. 12 years later and they're charging damn near the same prices for the EXACT models. Apparently the price went up to $139 back in 2013, which was before they discontinued it. Models that are now 13 years old.
This should tell you how ludicrous these price models are. They can sell a 13-year-old calculator to people for almost $100 because of testing requirements.

Depends on the class. Many classes will not allow them because of the programming features that allow you to write in whatever you want, or write a program that solves the question for you.

To clarify some confusion, this is actually the "newer" model. I bought one of these for my freshman year of college. It is significantly faster and easier to use than the regular TI84, which would give you an edge when it comes to testing as it'd draw graphs/data faster. It also has color so it's easier to see the different equations.

But it got stolen so I'm sad.

Yes, this is the newer model. TI must have a great mark up on these as I think they still use a Zilog Z80 chip which I used way back in the "Trash 80" (Radio Shack TRS-80) computer days (circa 1982).

Thanks op, I am reluctantly buying this as my son's school uses them in school and to have something different (even if better) becomes an issue. This beats the $98 price for it that Walt-mart had which beats the $118 or so price on Amazon when I was looking a week ago.
