The use of a calculator

Columbia09Columbia09 Posts: 993Registered User Member
For anyone who knows about Worthington Scranton, do they allow you to use calculators for math 140 and 141? Does it depend on the teacher or is it just a department made thing? Since the 8th grade, all of my classes allowed the use of a calculator so its going to be a big change for me if I have to start dividing and multiplying in my head.

    I think with penn state in general they're big on no-calculators, at least for 140-141. I took 140 [if that's calc 1] at berks one summer and they wouldn't let you use them at all. My friend goes to UP, and for both calc 1 and 2 they didnt allow it there.

    The decision is up to the individual teacher, but the only ones I have ever seen allow them were the honors instructors... and they found a way to make the calculators useless.

    I'm transferring [will be a junior] to main from alvernia university, and my friend goes to main. I took a summer class at berks last year.
