Can I use a calculator on the SAT?
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!
