Hooray! This project is fully funded

I would like to provide a class set of calculators for students to use on the checking unit and the tax unit. It will prevent the math errors and frustration students have when doing math. I teach Consumer Life Skills (the basic entry level class in Career Technical Education) and the advanced course to upperclassmen, Independent Living/Child Development. Vanden High School is located in Fairfield, CA and serves the Travis Air Force Base military families. I would like a class set of 30 basic calculators to be used by these three classes for approximately 75 students. Again, keeping a check register and balancing the bank statement is a basic skill in our society. We teach students to compute the 1040 EZ tax form and how to file their income tax. If students do not have a calculator, they become frustrated with the math. Calculators will encourage the learning experience for each student to be successful.
