UIL Calculators and Math

I'm thrilled I was askedto be the UIL Calculator coach and UIL Math co-coach this year.  Wewill practice every Friday afternoon from 4-5 for Calculators and someMonday afternoons if the students are willing, and they usually are!  Ihave done some research and found that the students will not becompetitive using the Texas Instrument calculators, which use algebraicnotation.  We will be using a calculator made by Hewlett Packard, whichuses Reverse Polish Notation (RPN).  This will allow the students to befast and accurate; two key components to being successful in this event.
I will send out one-way text message reminders (please see my page "Remind") to alert students of practices and meets.
