I am currently using calculators that are at least a decade old, so they have a bit of wear and tear. Some of the screens are cracked from being accidentally dropped (partially because the non-skid pads are missing) and some of the plastic cases are cracking from age. Although my students are gracious enough to not complain too much about them, they would truly appreciate some new calculators to use in the classroom when they forget theirs. Who doesn’t find it more exciting and fun to do a math problem on a whiteboard? Even though my students are high schoolers, they still find it more fun to do their math on a whiteboard which leads to better engagement. The boards make it easy to do a quick, easy-to-read formative assessment by having the students do a problem on their board. It’s easy for them to hold it up and me check it quickly—I couldn’t do that with paper and pencil. If they are struggling on a homework problem, I can quickly make up a similar problem for them to practice on the whiteboard. The boards I currently use were given to me by a local business when they replaced their whiteboards with new ones. Although they still work, they are getting worn out and the new one I am requesting have a coordinate plane which will be great when we graph lines and systems! Systems will be so much more fun on whiteboards than paper! Plus, it will be easy to erase the parts of the lines and shadings that aren’t applicable in application problems.
