Wow, I just found my TI-89 in the garage from college ('01-'05). It's crazy (1) people still use these, and (2) they're just as expensive, nominally, as they were 15 years ago.

yea, I know.

Most people don't need math skills to work in the service industry so calculator sales are really irrelevant any more.

I remember back in the late 90's , we were specifically told not to use calculators and use the tables instead. Now I see my kids school using these for no apparent reason

Not debating on the usefulness but many schools require these calculators.

Generally more advanced math classes don't require calculators... However, kids use calculators in school and rightly so. Real life math does requires them!

Still comical how TI graphing calculators stay at that price point for over a decade when they should be rendered obsolete

They allow for more complex problems, with the students focused more on the theory than the computation. It's still useful for students to know how to read the tables, and to memorize certain values, but it's also better for them to learn to use the calculators early, if they are going into technical fields where they will need to use them, because number crunching takes to long.

Little has changed to these calculators, so it is surprising how stable the price has remained, but maybe that's because those who have them either continue to use them, or aren't willing to sell them used at a significant loss. Teachers like them because it's easier to help the entire class learn to use a single model, rather than 10 different calculators that operate slightly differently.

Amazon seems to be OOS, Walmart won't ship it, Target has none left. Mad

But Staples may do a price match over the phone and would then ship me the unit for $0.00. If it works this puts me over my $1K spend requirement for the year to stay as Staples Rewards Premier member. I may be able to get a $10 rebate from Staples too. Just have to get the callback from Staples with the TU.

Thanks OP and reps. Kid told me today that she needs a graphing calculator.
