Graphing Calculators for Calculus Students in Need

My students need 5 TI-83+ calculators.

  • $663 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Graphing Calculators for Low-Income Calculus Students is what is needed so that all students, no matter their socio-economic backgrounds, can take AP Calculus at our High School.

Our High School is a diverse community. Although it is categorized as a "moderate poverty" school it has a large range of students, from multi-millionaire vineyard owners to children in the project housing that backs up to the school. We need to be able to allow our low income students to take Calculus just like their affluent classmates. If we have 5 loaner graphing calculators they can do that. What a difference it will make!

We need 5 Ti-83+ calculators for low-income Calculus students. Students cannot take the AP Calculus exam without a graphing calculator at their side (low-cost scientific calculators are not accepted). We can loan these calculators out each year and allow any student to take Calculus that is able. Help me make a difference to these students who have done outstanding Mathematical work for 11 years and now just need a calculator to succeed in Calculus.

With this donation of Ti-83+ Calculators you will allow any qualified student to take Calculus - not just the kids from families that can afford the calculator.
