Basic supplies such as pen, pencil, and paper will generally be enough for the first day of school.
To all students taking mathematics courses...
Many back-to-school sales are advertising savings on various calculators. The WHS Mathematics Department offers the following information re: calculators.
A graphing calculator is not required until Algebra 2; however, if you're going to purchase one, the Texas Instruments TI-83+, TI-84, or TI-84+ is recommended. The school has only a limited number of these available for use in the classroom.
Note: The department does NOT advise students to purchase the TI-85, TI-86, TI-89 or TI-Inspire. These calculators, though advertised as being "better" and "more capable," do not correspond as well with the curriculum that WHS uses.
To all students enrolled in either Cell Biology or Systems Biology . . .
You are required to have a standard size graph paper composition book on the first day of class. If you do not, one can be purchased from your science teacher. You will need a separate one for each course.
