Resources & Information
TI-84+ calculators are available each quarter, but we request that you check with your instructor first to see if you need the graphing calculator.
Graphing technology is required for Math 141, 142, 147, and 148. Graphing calculators are also beneficial to physics and engineering students.
Calculators are available on a first-come, first-served basis during the first week of the quarter.
Calculators can be picked up at the Math, Engineering, Science & Health Division (MESH) office at the Bremerton Campus, or delivered to the Poulsbo or Shelton campus Student Services office for pick up. Contact the MESH Division office to make arrangements.
Calculators should be returned to the MESH Division office after your finals at the end of the quarter. Students at the Poulsbo and Shelton campuses can return your rental calculators to the branch campus Student Services Office.
For more info, visit the calculator lending webpage.
Every student is assigned an advising team consisting of your Student Success Coach and Faculty Advisor, which is determined once you decide on your specific academic program. The following professors are Faculty Advisors for Mathematics.
