Math is power! I want my students to recognize power they have in the tools that mathematics provides--quantitative reasoning, recognizing patterns, developing algorithms, and problem solving to name a few. But to do that, we literally need POWER! High school math students use graphing calculators on a daily basis, often in more than one class (science classes do math too!) Graphing calculators are necessary for completing the complex calculus and statistics calculations that we are doing late in the year. However, at this point in the school year, the calculators are on their last leg in the power department. I am asked daily if I have batteries to replace the dead ones in students' calculators. Most graphing calculators require 4 AAA batteries, which students do not have on-hand when their calculator dies in the middle of class. Some graphing calculators use a USB charge cord, and students are often asking for chargers to charge their almost-dead calculators. With final exams and AP Exams coming up soon, we can't afford to have dead calculators! In addition to powering students' calculators, we have about 25 classroom graphing calculators that are used for students at all levels. When the batteries of these calculators run out, I often replace them myself so that the calculators are available for enhancing math instruction.
