Ms. C. from Charlotte NC is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Error Free

My students need 3 graphing calculators because it is the minimum technology requirement for Algebra 2.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach Algebra 2 in a high poverty school to students in grades 9-11 where approximately 80% of the students receive free or reduced lunch.

Because of the cost, some of my students are unable to afford a graphing calculator which is essential to their success in Algebra 2. Having access to a graphing calculator in the classroom and subsequently, for the Algebra 2 End-of-Course test, will make it possible for students to be competent and prepared for success on the state-mandated test.

Having access to 3 additional graphing calculators in the classroom will aid my students in their learning of mathematical concepts. Algebra 2 is a minimum requirement for students to be accepted into a state-sponsored university.

You will make it possible for my students to be more competent as well as successful on the ALgebra 2 End of Course test by making "error free" computations and having a working knowledge of how to use and apply the technology.

Grades 9-12
Nearly all students from low‑income households
