CC Algebra I and II Calculator Guide – by Michael Desharnais and Giselle Ferraro

So, Michael Desharnais and Giselle Ferraro from Port Chester Schools put together a simply amazing graphing calculator resource guide for the Common Core Algebra exams in New York state. Granted, it is mostly geared towards CC Algebra I calculator skills, but I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to give it to my CC Algebra II kids as well.

It has everything in terms of button by button directions. Here’s a good example from statistics. Click on the image to see it more clearly.

They’ve even included a really handy Table of Contents. Anyhow, this thing has it all. Consider printing it out or posting it to your website. I’ve included both a Word version here and a pdf version.

Thanks so much Giselle and Michael. Much appreciated!!!

  1. Thank you for these wonderful resources.
    What a blessing.

  2. Kirk I love your videos and lessons. I do have one suggestion. It is minor, but here goes. In Algebra 1 CC unit 10 lesson 5 the first exercise is no good for a class of nonwhite students. Being that I have classes of Hispanic , black and occasionally Asian students, everyone has brown eyes and I feel uncomfortable using this question to begin the lesson. How about shirt color instead? I know you have only good intentions and these books have been a great gift to all teachers struggling with the common core, so I just thought I’d note this.

  3. Stephanie,

    Interesting suggestion. I’ll try to remove it but it probably won’t get out really soon only because we have a ton of books printed upl
