Calculator Contract

I am fortunate enough to teach at a small school and only have about 30 or so calculus students every year, so that I can hand out TI-nspire calculators for the year for their work. This has been happening for about 4 years, and I was a little lax the first year and a couple got stolen or "lost". Then the next year, one student brought one back all wide eyed and just stated that it stopped working. Finally, like the slow person I am, I mentioned MORE strongly from then on that they were responsible for them and owed the school money if they were damaged or lost. One student actually did end up paying for one. 

This year, I want to make it more official (sheesh, I am really slow), and have them sign a contract at the beginning of the year. Here is what I came up with. Hopefully, there won't be any incidents.


  1. Cute. Most of our kids had their own calculators. The ones that did not just filled out a book receipt with the price of a replacement. I always got them back.

  2. Hi RitaCat! Yes, hopefully this will be as successful as your situation. I have to come to NYC again some day and bug you to go walking and chatting again.
