Question: Where can I get these calculators? I've heard from a friend in a Calculus course that the TI-89/92 plus is hard to find in Westminster.
Answer: Most retail stores that sell electronics will sell graphing calculators. Our list below is a list of suggested places in Westminster (and elsewhere) that have been known to carry at least some of the recommended graphing calculators. The math department (nor Carroll Community College) does not support one establishment over another and we do not have any arrangements with any of the stores. If you know of an additional store (or reputable web site) that sells these calculators, we would love to add them to this growing list. Send your store name or website to firstname.lastname@example.org.
