AP Macroeconomics Calculator Policy

Hey guys, I'm taking AP Macroeconomics this year. Does anyone know if we're allowed to use calculators during the exam and, if so, what type is permitted?

6 months ago

Hey there! Yes, you are allowed to use a calculator during the AP Macroeconomics exam. The College Board permits the use of graphing calculators, scientific calculators, and most four-function calculators. However, there are some specific types of calculators that are not allowed, such as those with QWERTY (typewriter-like) keypads, those that can communicate with other calculators or the internet, and those with built-in computer algebra systems.

A few examples of acceptable calculators are the TI-83 and TI-84 series, Casio Prizm and fx-9750GII, and the HP 39gII, while examples of prohibited calculators include the TI-89, TI-Nspire CAS, HP Prime, and Casio ClassPad.

I recommend that you check the College Board's website for their full calculator policy to make sure your specific calculator model is permitted. It's also a good idea to familiarize yourself with your calculator's functions prior to the exam to make the most of it during the test. Good luck with your AP Macroeconomics exam!
