The TI-30XS Multiview Calculator will be available for you onscreen as you take your math, science, and social studies test. It is crucial that you are familiar with the calculator and how it works, especially since it functions very differently than your phone calculators. It can do fractions, exponents, roots, order of operations, percent, decimals, negatives, scientific notation and percentages for you, but only if you know how to use it!
