Calculators & Math Supplies

Dear Parents and Guardians

Back-to-school sales are in full swing. It might be a good idea to get a jumpstart on other shoppers and get your student a calculator and math supplies while they are still in stock.  

We suggest students have the following for all math classes at Elk Ridge Middle School:

– Three ring binder 

– Lots of pencils (We learn from our mistakes!)

– Loose leaf paper

– Earbuds (to use when watching lesson videos)

– Calculator (see below)

We strongly recommend that each student have their own calculator to assist with practice assignments and to reduce the number of items that are shared in class. Here are links showing the calculators that are used in each class:

Math 8, Sec. 1, & Sec, 2 Calculator    (These classes start using calculators the first week of school.)

Math 7 Calculator   (Math 7 does not use calculators until 2nd quarter, but they are cheaper now.)

Elk Ridge will have a calculator rental program, but availability is limited. (Rental information will be forthcoming.) With the emphasis on not sharing supplies and Friday distance learning, it would be a good idea to get a calculator sooner rather than later.

Please contact your student’s math teacher if you have questions or concerns.
