UPDATE: CONGRATULATIONS TO JOE, SENIOR AT MORTON HIGH SCHOOL, THE WINNER OF OUR FREE CALCULATOR CONTEST!
It’s no secret from our recent review of the TI-30 series that TPM feels the best entry level calculator Texas Instruments has on the market is the TI-30 X Multiview. Now, we’re going to send one student head back to school with a free Multiview. Sometime between now and Labor Day, why not enter our contest?
To enter, post:
1) First name (no last names, please)
2) Year in school and name/location of school
3) In 100 words or less, why do you feel you should win the Multiview from TPM? Your reasons can be serious or amusing. We will announce our favorite on Twitter and Facebook, so be sure to subscribe.
Example entry post:
2) Freshman at East High School in Albuquerque, NM
3) I could really use a great new calculator. I just moved to this school, and everybody is a little too into singing and dancing for me. It makes it hard to concentrate in math class, and I’m planning to go out for the math team, so I really need a new calculator. I read your review of the multiview, and it’s the one I want. I love that it can simplify square roots, and I think it would really help me out in honors geometry.
1) Must be a legal resident of the United States to enter.
2) Any profanity, crude language, or otherwise inappropriate speech will result in disqualification.
