Moles! Every Chemistry class has them! And no, I am not talking about a furry little animal or that freckle-like spot on your skin. Moles are the center of mathematical conversion in chemistry! But it is almost impossible to learn about moles unless you have a scientific calculator. And that is where the problem lies... My students are in need of scientific calculators in order to perform basic mole calculations in chemistry! Throughout the year calculators are used when learning about the relationship between pressure, temperature and volume of gases. Then again as they learn about moles and making conversions between moles, molecules and mass. Many of the concepts involve mathematical computations. But the biggest challenge is dealing with values that are in scientific notation, like a mole. My students need this function on their calculator and right now, I have limited resources for them to use. Students have to share calculators which often slows them down. And I have even less with the ability to input values in scientific notation. Having scientific calculators will give students the individual freedom to work at their own pace and to reinforce their individual learning. The use of a calculator will increase efficiency which will allow for more time to delve deeper into concepts and increase lab experiences.
