This is the first lesson of our addition to the free online GED® classes. In this section, you will learn about the two versions of the scientific TI-30 XS calculator and how to use them to pass the GED Math exam.
Online GED classes are the perfect way of preparing for the GED exam.
This is especially true for students who have busy lives and want to upgrade their education and get a better job.
On the Math test, you can use only one calculator, The TI-30 XS. The TI-30 XS calculator comes in two versions.
You can use it as a handheld device or as a digital, on-screen version.
During the Math test, you will also have access to a digital, on-screen version of the calculator.
If you are taking the test in a traditional test center, you can bring your own handheld TI-30 XS calculator.
However, if you choose to take the Math test online, you must use the digital version of the TI-30 XS.
To participate in this course, you need to have access to one of these versions.
If you prefer to own a handheld device, you can buy this calculator in every Walmart, BestBuy, or amazon.com. It costs about $18.
A digital version of the calculator is convenient but less accessible for students. The one-time fee is $49, and you need to download this software to your computer.
If you have an Android phone, you can download a free app.
The app replicates the functionality of the TI-30 XS calculator. But you will not be allowed to use this app during the exam.
This app is available only on Android phones or tablets. We couldn’t find it for iPhones.
Go to Google Play Store and look for this app: Scientific calculator 30 ti pro, 34 pro.
The app installs two types of calculators. Every time you launch the app, you need to choose TI-30 XS. It’s the first option.
This concludes the first lesson of our online GED classes, related to a scientific calculator TI-30 XS.
