Why can't we use a graphing calculator on the tests?

I guess graphing calculators allow you to store equations and they usually are programmable, so it's there way of preventing us from cheating by storing equations they want us to memorize.

It's possible for people to program cheats and other unfair advantages into a graphing calculator. A non-graphing, scientific calculator helps prevent that because it's not as advanced as a graphing calculator.

A lot of graphing calculators these days are programmable and could contain features that may give others an unfair advantage when it comes to the test. By using a scientific calculator, it ensures that every one has an equal chance.

There are also lots of calculators that have periodic tables inside and different chemistry programs with conversions.

In addition, many new graphing calculators have systems of equations solvers which significantly cuts down the time required to solve certain problems later on in the course.

You can cheat if you have a graphing calculator as you can store equations and notes in it.
