7th-12 th Grade Math Classes – If you know the next class you will be taking, look for that

class next to the teacher’s name below. Some classes have not been scheduled yet or may

need an additional section to be taught. If that is the case or you are not sure what you will

be taking this year, please wait to get specific supplies for that class. All math classes require

college-ruled loose leaf paper, graph paper, and pencils.

Mrs. Long’s Classes (Algebra 2 and Financial Literacy)

For my classes, you NEED three basic things: a way to keep handouts organized, paper, and something to write with.

Here are some items I recommend…

Handout Organizer

1″ 3 Ring Binder (For the student who is generally good about keeping a neat, organized binder. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix

it.)

OR

Fivestar Flex Hybrid Notebinder (For the student who prefers a spiral notebook but needs a binder. It’s the best of both!)

OR

Expanding file folder with 7 pockets (For the student whose handouts just never seem to make it onto those 3 pesky

rings. This gives you one place to shove all the things and then organize them later… or never… but at least you can find

them.)

Paper

Loose leaf paper for binders

OR

1 subject spiral notebook for the expandable file folder.

*Wide-ruled, college-ruled, and graph paper are all fine.

Pencils… or Pens

Just please have plenty of pens and/or pencils. (I find that having more than one color for different steps helps some

students.)

OPTIONAL ITEMS

It would be beneficial to have at least a scientific calculator for class each day.

ALGEBRA 2: We will be using TI 84+ graphing calculators often in class. If you would like to have the same graphing

calculator for home use, I often find good deals on eBay. They are allowed on the ACT.

Binder

Pencils

Ruler

TI calculator

Mrs. Bell’s Classes (Geometry, College Algebra, Trig/PreCal, and Calculus)

Geometry

2 inch 3-ring binder

loose-leaf paper

pencils

colored pencils

ruler with both metric and customary measures

graph paper

protractor – I will give each student a protractor. If they lose it or break it, they can buy another one

for $0.50.

scientific calculator with trigonometric functions – This is the calculator that I would like for students to

get. If students get a different kind, it makes it difficult for me to demonstrate how to use the

calculator for specific calculations that we will be doing.

compass – For students to be able to do constructions well, they MUST have a great compass. Plastic

compasses DO NOT work well! In addition, the parts for this compass are not as easily lost. Since

pencils can be changed, there is not an ongoing issue with constantly losing lead. The following is a link

to the compass that I am recommending. If students get a different kind, I cannot help if they are not

able to do constructions well.

***Special note for PreAlgebra: A calculator will be used very sparingly in this class. At this age,

students still need to use mental math as much as possible, especially multiplication facts. The

calculator may be used periodically if the computations involve difficult numbers, or if there are

calculator activities that I want to use in the textbook. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of

students knowing the multiplication facts.
