As part your child’s / ward’s IB Mathematics and Science courses in grade 9 through 12, they are required to have a Graphical Display Calculator (GDC) for graphing and data logging purposes. Our school is using the Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus models and we urge you to buy this model as your child or ward would be at a distinct disadvantage if they brought a different model to class. We have researched prices from various establishments and have been given the following quotes:
Learning InterActive Pte Ltd: Block 231 Bain Street, 04-39 Bras Basah Complex, Tel: 6333 4838
- TI-84 Plus $170 including tax (cash only and student ID needed for purchase)
- TI-84 Plus Silver Edition $195 including tax (cash only and student ID needed for purchase)
Parisilk: 15A Lorong Liput, Off Holland Village, (Behind Holland Shopping Centre), Tel: 6466 6002

- TI-84 Plus Silver Edition $199 + 7% (Nets and credit cards accepted, no need for student ID)
Prices Current as of April 6, 2010.
There are other stores where you can purchase these calculators, but we have found these to be the best value. If you are thinking of purchasing other Ti models, please check with your child’s/ward’s mathematics teacher first. The IBO has a very strict policy on allowable calculators on all IB examinations.
