We are really starting to see a transition in the way science is being taught and our students are going to need to be able to do their own data analysis to make informed decisions. As NGSS takes over the old Michigan state curriculum, students will be asked to approach science courses in a much more independent manner. They will be introduced to problems and phenomena, given time to do research and analyze data, and then explain their understanding. As students will be required to analyze data, they will need access to calculators. Our community has a diverse range of students and some really need to have access to these kinds of tool within the classroom setting.
