My wife (a high school math teacher and huge graphing calculator supporter) was asked by one of her science colleagues (not a graphing calculator fan) what kind of policies there were in colleges about calculator use in chemistry classes in particular. I knew immediately where to go to get answers. As inorganic chemists there is a good chance we spend some time teaching gen. chem. (if your school has such a beast). I was just curious as to what kind of calculator policy (if any) other places had. We at some point in the past became very paranoid about students cheating using graphing calculators. We require students to buy TI-30X IIS and those are the only calculators that can be used in class for our gen. chem. I would appreciate any feedback even if your policy is similar to ours.
