Graphing Calculator Capabilities for the Exams 



The committee develops exams based on the assumption that all students have access to four basic calculator capabilities used extensively in calculus. A graphing calculator appropriate for use on the exams is expected to have the builtin capability to: 



• Plot the graph of a function within an arbitrary viewing window 



• Find the zeros of functions (solve equations numerically) 



• Numerically calculate the derivative of a function 



• Numerically calculate the value of a definite integral 



Graphing calculators having the expected builtin capabilities listed above are indicated with an asterisk (*). However, students may bring any calculator on the list to the exam; any model within each series is acceptable. 



Applications of Graphing Calculators for the Exams 



Casio Graphic Calculators are allowed in exams for BSc
Mathematics, BSc Statistics, MSc Mathematics, MSc Statistics, Phd Mathematics, Phd Statistics, Bsc Applied Mathematics, MSc Applied Mathematics, Phd Applied Mathematics. 



Casio Graphic Calculators are also allowed in exams for students appearing in Mathematics / Statistics and financial Analysis in MMS and MBA exams. 



Polytechnic Diploma & Degree Engineering Colleges also allow Casio Graphic Calculators to students during exams for respective subjects.. 



Casio Graphic Calculators are extensively used by students of IBDP (International Baccarulate Diploma Programme Grade XI & XII) & students with International Mathematics in Grade IX & X of IGCSE (University of Cambridge ) Schools. These are also allowed during exams. 



We recommend the use of a scientific or graphing calculator. You may not use a calculator while working on the critical reading or writing portions, and must put the calculator away during these portions of the test. 



SAT Mathematics 



Casio Graphic calculators are meant to aid students in problem solving select questions of mathematics, statistics, scietific and for financial calculations.

Unacceptable calculators 



There are many types of calculators available on the market. However, only a few are approved for students to use in AP Exams. 



Calculator Policy of AP / SAT Exams 



The use of a graphing calculator is considered an integral part of the AP / SAT course, and is permissible on parts of the AP / SAT Exams. Students should use this technology on a regular basis so that they become adept at using their graphing calculators. 



Technology Restrictions on the Exams 



You are not permitted to use these items on the AP Calculus Exams: nongraphing scientific calculators, portable and handheld computers, laptops, electronic writing pads, pocket organizers. ?? 



Additionally, you cannot use any graphing calculator models with these features or capabilities: QWERTY (typewriterlike) keypad as part of hardware or software (e.g., TI92 Plus, Voyage 200); peninput, stylus or touchscreen (e.g., PalmPilot, personal digital assistant, Casio ClassPad); wireless or Bluetooth capabilities; paper tapes; talk or make noise; require an electrical outlet; have cell phone, audio, or video recording capability; can access the Internet; or camera or scanning capability. Also, the use of hardware peripherals with an approved calculator is prohibited.
