# Year 9

**Year 9**

The use of a calculator is introduced in Year 9. We recommend that each pupil use a CASIO model FX-83GTX and this will be required in September. Pupils should bring it with them every day; however, we also emphasize the importance of continuing to develop non-calculator skills learned in Year 8. The June examination has both a non-calculator and a calculator section, as do some of the Year 9 MATs.
