The use of calculators is almost a daily activity in my classroom, especially in math. Some students may ask to borrow a calculator to check their work when they are unsure of their calculations while others have learning deficits that require calculator use. Unfortunately, I have a limited number of functioning calculators in my classroom. We really need a class set for our "Money in the Bank" project. Our "Money in the Bank" project will be an ongoing project which will introduce students to personal finance. My students will maintain their own mock checking accounts. When students enter class they will write checks to pay monthly or weekly bills and random expenses. Students will also be randomly assigned a job in which a high school diploma is the minimum educational requirement. As the year progresses, students will obtain new jobs that require different levels of education. Attempts have been made to make the salaries as realistic as possible based on the level of education. By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, but you will also ultimately help to increase their academic achievement. Math is tedious and might not be everyone’s favorite subject. Calculators help make it more enjoyable for students. Students will be able to complete a set of problems and then check to see if they’ve gotten them right on their calculator. Calculators are great for this purpose; if both answers don’t line up students can go back and re-check their work to see where they may have gone wrong. Calculators are immensely valuable for validating work. My students will learn that calculators are helpful tools that students can turn to for help, not just fast answers.
