Well, i felt ambitious and signed up for Honors Precalculus. I think i will be fine considering i love math and physics, but i need a good graphing calculator. Around $100150 if possible. And it would be nice if it had normal physics and math constants in it (since i am also taking physics next year).
Thanks in advance.

You don't need a graphing calculator for anything you may be doing.
A scientific calculator is good enough(unless you want to play Mario kart on it. That is mainly what I use my graphing Calculator for). Physics contents? You mean like scientific constants? Most scientific/graphing calculators have them. If you mean programs, you need computer software(MATLAB, Mathematica,etc.) but they are much more expensive than what you could afford.

I wont? It seems like everyone in my school at the precalculus level has one...
Can you still reccomend some? I want to be prepared and im sure it would be good to have in my senior year. I dont mean programs, because i would need to take this to school. Plus we have a lot of those programs on my school computers.

Reccomend a good Graphing CalculatorIf you really are looking for a comprehensive calculator try the TI89 (Titanium) or HP 50G. I have the TI, and I can vouch for it from personal experience, but I'm sure the HP is fine as well.

Wellesley, (e^t)*sin 3t is fairly easy to graph by hand by letting e^t be the "amplitude".
Also if you are REALLY interested in math/physics, then you could get Mathematica (It's like $300. But It's fun to play with.)

TI83+ or TI84. Good deals always are offered during "Going Back To School" time.
You don't really need graphing calculators in PreCalculus or College Algebra, but they can be very nice for checking some of your work.

I forgot, the Casio ClassPad 300, is probably the coolest graphing calculator! It uses a touchscreen!
Edit: If you get it, make sure you get the "plus" version.
