Parents,
  
Please advise your students that they are required to bring their own graphing calculators for the Wednesday October 11th administration of the PSAT / NMSQT test. If they do not bring a calculator then they will not have one for the calculator portion of the math test.
 
*Calculators are allowed on only one part of the math test.*
 
Students Must Bring One of These Calculators
 
Graphing calculator (most models permitted; see Official Student Guide for list)
Scientific calculator
Four-function calculator (not recommended)
 
 
Students Must Leave These Devices at Home
 
Anything that can connect to the Internet
Anything that makes noise or “talks”
Calculators that use electrical outlets
Calculators with QWERTY keypads
Tablets or cellphones
Laptops or handheld computers
Paper-tape calculators
Calculators with a pen-input device or stylus
 
Calculator Smarts for Students
 
Bring your own calculator. You can’t share one.
Don’t bring a brand-new calculator. Bring one you know.
Practice for the test using the same calculator you’ll use on test day.
Decide how to solve a problem, then decide if you need your calculator. This might surprise you, but calculators don’t always save time. In fact, the Math Test includes some questions where it’s faster not to use a calculator, even though you’re allowed to.
