If included on the device, the following functions must be disabled in graphing handheld calculators and graphing applications during testing:

  • Geometry functions
  • Graphing implicit equations and inequalities
  • Graphing inequalities (calculator/application automatically interprets the inequality symbol)
  • Functions that automatically calculate mean absolute deviation

For specific assistance in appropriately preparing calculators and graphing applications for use during testing, contact the manufacturer.

You can access the complete Calculator Policy here.
