To ensure that all students have equal access to calculators, a small number of calculators have been approved for use. The three approved calculators with the pink tie logos are:

  • TI 30X II (Either the 'S' (solar) or 'B' (battery) version of this model are acceptable)
  • Casio fx-300MS
  • Sharp EL 531X (EL 531XG, 531XH, and 531XT are also acceptable, as they are the same model with different power supplies)

To purchase an approved calculator that has a pink tie logo, you can do so at the W Store or the Mathematics Society (MathSoc) office in Mathematics & Computing Building (MC) 3038.

The Faculty of Science has adopted the TI 30X II for use in their courses with their own logo (blue goggles). These calculators will also be allowed in place of the pink tie calculators.

Note: The Texas Instruments (TI) 30X II calculator is also approved for use in the Society of Actuaries exams.
