Miles River Middle School Changes in the 6-12 Mathematics Curriculum Tony Walsh 6-12 Mathematics Curriculum Leader 6 th Grade Parents: Please buy a scientific calculator for your child ASAP, for use 6-8 th grades! A cheap one is fine (example, several $5 to $10 at Walmart, choose solar powered) It should have a square root key and an exponent key (x y or y x or ^)
