Yes, that's what happens on mine.

The kids in my advanced math class would play a game called 'Drug Wars' or
similar on their calculator.. even during exams. They'd copy the answers from me
when they realized they'd been playing Drug Wars on their Ti-83's and didn't
have time to complete their assignment.. ticked me off but for some reason I let
them copy my answers. Probably so they'd remain dumb for the rest of their life.
I just used my casio and never purchased any special calculators for advanced
math class. Of course people would also use Ti-83's to store text information
for cheating.
