Crazy Calculator Disorder

My project needs are for the students in my class to each have a calculator to use in class during math. Requested are 31 calculators.

The students in my class would benefit greatly from the use of their own calculator. Sharing is fine for some items, but a calculator presents a problem. Some students just let the other do the work and then they are unable to use the calculator on their own. The other problem occurs when it is time for testing (end of level, and IOWA) and during certain parts of these tests they allow a calculator to be used. When you don't have enough working calculators in your class it is hard to do that part of the test. It would help if all students had their own, and the same kind of calculator so they can learn together and not have to go over things twice. There is not enough time in a normal school day to get through everything I want to do. If you have to add in extra time to teach how to do certain things on a calculator twice it takes away important teaching time.
