Calculator type: Scientific Calculator for All.
• No items on the current Mathematics FSA require
the graphing tool in order to solve them.
• A scientific calculator is sufficient for all items in the
calculator session(s) of the Mathematics FSA.
• Therefore, students may use the computer-based
scientific calculator or a hand-held scientific
calculator when taking an Mathematics FSA (Grade
7, Grade 8, Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2).
• The Draft Mathematics Policy document will be
revised to include a list of prohibited functionalities
for scientific calculators (rather than approved
models)​.

Calculators for grades 7, and 8:
• Students in grades 7 and 8 will be permitted to use
the calculator provided within the assessment
platform for certain items.
• Calculators will not be permitted for session 1 but
will be permitted for session 2 and 3 for the above
mathematics assessments.

Calculators for Algebra and Geometry:
• Students taking Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry
EOC Assessments will be permitted to use the
Scientific calculator provided within the assessment
platform for certain items.
• Calculators will not be permitted for session 1 but
will be permitted for session 2 for the above
mathematics assessments.
