Calculate...analyze...determine...apply...conduct...these are just a few of the verbs found in the MN state chemistry standards that can be directly linked to the need for a calculator. When it comes to chemistry it is easy to see that providing access to scientific calculators is essential to maintaining equity in the classroom. To some of you, the need to provide students with an item that comes with a seemingly low price tag will seem unnecessary, but I am aware that for many families $15 can feel very out of reach. In these cases, students are left to rely on the school to provide these necessary supplies or go without. With these scientific calculators, my students will be able to go beyond basic mathematic calculations and be able to tackle more advanced concepts. Some topics that we have not been able to explore to extent fullest without the availability of scientific calculators have been measurement conversions, exploring the mathematical relationships involved in chemical reactions, investigating properties of light, calculating pH using logarithms, and much more. My goal is for each of my students to have a scientific calculator available to them. I have requested 20 scientific calculators to be available in my classroom to those students who are not able to obtain one of their own. The calculators I have chosen for this project are solar-powered, so the cost to keep them in use will be minimal. The kits also include storage cases that will help protect them from unnecessary damage, lengthening the number of years they will be in use. This project not only has the ability to reach 140+ student's throughout a single school year but many more in years to come.
