30 Scientific Calculators

My students need a set of scientific calculators to facilitate a smooth transition to the new common core state standards.

My Students

California, with much of the US, is preparing for a massive shift in education with the introduction of the new common core state standards. The use of scientific calculators in a math classroom allows us as a class to focus less on the arithmetic and more on the actual mathematics behind it.

I teach in an inner-city school district.

Most of my students are very interested in learning math, but some still stumble on basic skills (like fraction multiplication), which impedes their progress in the class. The school is a Title 1 school and has a completely new set of administration this year, which is set on improving the quality of instruction at the school and preparing for the common core state standards.

My Project

Out of my 78 Algebra 2 students, 17 of them have access to a scientific calculator. Not only is a calculator a necessary tool to understand topics such as trig functions and logarithms, but it is also a great tool for students who are still hung up on basic arithmetic issues (like multiplication tables) to bridge the gap between computation and concept.

It is important because every student deserves the tools necessary to be successful.

With a set of 30 scientific calculators, I would be able to ensure that every one of my students have access to a calculator.
