IIRC this is the calculator used at Rye high for stats courses. I think I bought it at about $70-80 ish at the Ryerson book store several years back?

This is a very good calculator. I bought one for $35 a few years ago when it was on clearance at Target. I used it for a while and then gave it to my son for his high school course. He said it was a lot easier to use compare with TI calculator. Also you can flash a modified 9860 firmware into it to add a couple of extra functions like spreadsheets.

Why? I honestly think you need to understand calculus first before using such aid...

Agreed. University Calculus doesn't allow graphing calculators.

I don't know about trying to pull-off an 'engineer' with these.. pretty sure they use pretty restricted calculators too. In fact, at UofA where I went to school they had approved calculators with engineering faculty seals/stickers on them on sale at the bookstore -- all pretty basic casios with not a lot of advanced features.

I had a Casio graphing in Highschool though (the colour(!) one!) -- I appreciated it... though no one else had one yeah, i found mine more efficient as that link above/.pdf shows. Worked ok for me (mom bought it, wasn't wealthy) and was cheaper for sure. There were times I had to do a bit more reading to use it bit it could do the same or more than those TI-84's.
Granted, this was all 20 years ago :D But it's not like math is a thing (at the high levels, at least) that changes too much over many, many years.

My only disclaimer though would be that the the Texas Instruments seemed to be a bit of hardier construction/plastic.. and sometimes (as mentioned) instructions given to the class I had to figure out on my own/use the manual (though the menus are pretty helpful (unlike the TI's). I suppose you could try to use this in Grade 12 Intro Calculus.. but I'm pretty sure our teacher banned them from that class :P too easy to find derivitives/integrals.|
Blast-from-the-past.. amazing how we're getting excited over calculators.. :P

Good days.
Yaaas... I had this, but in COLOUR :D (ok, a 3-colour screen :P ) .. Was revolutionary at the time.. No other calculator had this in 1996.
EDIT: Ahh, the 9850 GB Plus. Right on the wikipedia page:

The newer version, 9750GIII, looks really bad ass.

Do kids really need a physical graphing calculator at high school (in BC) ? My daughter uses Desmos online and seems to be fine with it.

Chatbox, just when we thought we were advanced and catching up to the kids these days Alfred drops this bomb... :P

No computers, cellphones, etc. at my desk in those days...
