Yes.   The SAT allows these calculators for use on the Math sections of the test:

  • four-function calculators
  • scientific calculators
  • graphing calculator

While the SAT allows scientific and graphing calculators, a simple, four-function (+, -, X, / ) calculator is all you really need for the SAT I.

Calculators you CANNOT use:

X pocket organizer
X hand-held or laptop computer
X electronic writing pad or pen input device
X calculator with a QWERTY (typewriter-like) keypad
X calculator with paper tape
X calculator that makes noises or “talks”
X calculator that requires an outlet

Check your batteries!
