Advanced STEM For Middle School Students
Help me give my students graphing calculators to prepare for high school math and science classes.
We are an inner-city Kindergarten through eighth grade school with all the issues one might expect of urban public Title one school. However, we are a public international baccalaureate (IB) program that features a full inquiry-based curriculum. Our students receive a real opportunity and strong support to prepare well for an IB high school.
Our students have decided to accept academic rigor in an urban public school and have achieved remarkable success.
Our school converted to a strong project-based program four years ago. Our first eighth-grade class is the class of 2020.
The stakes are very high, but we know that all students can succeed in a rigorous academic program.
My students study math in an academically rigorous program to prepare for a strong high school program. They are encouraged to be creative and explore.
Your donation will provide students with the tool they need to develop a deep conceptual understanding of algebra and geometry basic skills.
They will use these calculators to graph equations, analyze data and perform complex calculations. Without this tool, they can only learn at a surface level using rote methods that are not ideal for long term retention and understanding.
On behalf of my students and our school district, I want to thank you for your generosity!
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
