|The mathematics department at Tolland High School will strive to have each student understand and use mathematical concepts and fundamental processes, i.e., experimentation, logical reasoning, computational skills, and analysis of both theory and applications at a level which is consistent with their ability, maturity, and needs. A variety of challenging courses are offered to students of all ability levels. Technology is incorporated appropriately within the lessons. Graphing calculators have been integrated into the college preparatory and honor courses. It his highly recommended that each student in these classes has access to a graphing calculator for both school and home use. The school has a limited number of graphing calculators that are available for student use during class only. The mathematics department recommends any calculator in the TI (Texas Instruments) 83 or 84 family.
