Beginning in 8th grade, students start using calculators in class. These can't just be any calculators, but they have to specifically be the TI-Nspire CX Graphing Calculators. These calculators create a huge financial burden for our students. However, they will need them all throughout their high school career. My hope is to create a class set of these calculators so that every student in my classroom can have access to them and be set up for success. This is vital for my students to be able to perform well in STEM. With your support, I can make sure that every student in my classroom is working to the best of their abilities every day as they fight for a chance to pursue their dreams in various STEM-related fields!
