Hooray! This project is fully funded

One of the most difficult things about teaching in an under-resourced school is that you are often left without technology, even the most basic of forms. A primary example of this is the lack of calculators in my school. Not only are calculators good learning devices (since kids can begin to understand the relationship between numbers and operations) they are also beneficial tools that can be used on standardized tests. It is for these reasons that I wish to get a class set of calculators. I feel that allowing each student to explore the power of a calculator and how it can help them in math would be very beneficial to the educational experience in my classroom.
