33 © 2014, Florida Department of Education. All Rights Reserved. Calculator type: Scientific Calculator for All. No items on the current Mathematics FSA require the graphing tool in order to solve them. A scientific calculator is sufficient for all items in the calculator session(s) of the Mathematics FSA. Therefore, students may use the computer-based scientific calculator or a hand-held scientific calculator when taking an Mathematics FSA (Grade 7, Grade 8, Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2). The Draft Mathematics Policy document will be revised to include a list of prohibited functionalities for scientific calculators (rather than approved models)​.

34 © 2014, Florida Department of Education. All Rights Reserved. Calculators for grades 7, and 8: Students in grades 7 and 8 will be permitted to use the calculator provided within the assessment platform for certain items. Calculators will not be permitted for session 1 but will be permitted for session 2 and 3 for the above mathematics assessments.

35 © 2014, Florida Department of Education. All Rights Reserved. Calculators for Algebra and Geometry: Students taking Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry EOC Assessments will be permitted to use the Scientific calculator provided within the assessment platform for certain items. Calculators will not be permitted for session 1 but will be permitted for session 2 for the above mathematics assessments.
