Many engineering teachers don't allow graphing calculators because the FE and PE exams only allow non-graphing calculators (HP 33s/35s TI 30/36 Casio fx-115). They don't believe that it is good for students to use calculators unapproved for tests (I use an HP-35s in class, but use an HP 50g or maxima outside of classroom).

I have a Casio fx-115es as a secondary calculator because my teacher doesn't allow graphing calculators on tests. It does almost everything my TI-84 does minus programming, games, and graphing. Best scientific calc ever.

Hahaha, very cool. I remember getting my TI-83 Plus for my math class. Cost me about $90 bucks on sale that time. Only actually used it in Pre-Cal, Calculus, and Statistics class though. (I suck in math anyways)
