Should we be using scientific calculators and not graphing calculators?

You have to use scientific calculators, because graphing calculators are programmable. People can program answers and whatnot on graphing calculators to cheat on exams.

Sorry if this is redundant, but I just want to make sure that all TI calculators are not allowed for any quizzes or exams?

^ Yes, any calculator that is programmable, which basically means just scientific calculators are allowed.

There are simple scientific TI calculators as well. Graphing calculators aren't allowed, but nonprogrammable scientific ones are.

I know someone asked if all TI calculators are not allowed, but is a TI-34 calculator allowed? I do not think this model is programmable but I want to double check before the first quiz next week.
