Graphing Calculator Rental Program
The Las Positas College Math Department offers a graphing calculator rental program whereby students pay a fee (currently $30 in cash or a check payable to "Las Positas College") to rent a TI-83 graphing calculator (or similar model) for the semester. In order to rent a calculator, students need to fill out the form below:
After filling out the form, please submit it, along with payment, to Elizabeth Owens. Please contact her directly by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (925) 424-1326 for more information.

Alternatives to Renting a Physical Calculator
- There are several different types of calculator emulators available online for free. One recommended emulator is the Wabbit emulator, also known as "Wabbitemu." This emulator can be downloaded for free at https://wabbit.codeplex.com/. After installation, you will need to download a TI-83 calculator ROM, which may be done from a physical calculator or downloaded online. The Wabbitemu emulator is installed on most ILC computers in the Open Math Lab.
