How to change KITE™ Client graphing calculator mode

Thursday, March 10, 2016

For the 9th and 10th grade mathematics assessments, students should change the TI-84 (graphing) calculator tool to “degree” mode. At the beginning of each testing session, please instruct students to use the following steps to change to degree mode:

  1. Open the TI-84 calculator tool
  2. Click the “Mode” button
  3. Arrow down twice to the word “Radian”
  4. Arrow right once to the word “Degree”
  5. Click “Enter,” and the highlighting should change from “Radian” to “Degree”
  6. Click “2nd” and then “Mode” to exit the menu

Repeat these steps each new testing session, as the calculator tool resets between sessions.
