My Students

My students at The John Dickinson School in Wilmington, DE are hard-working and actually like coming to school. They all want to be successful and many are college-bound. We are an IB (International Baccalaureate) School located in a low socio-economic area and through our IB programs, students get a high level and rigorous education that prepares them for higher education beyond high school. Because a majority of the students come from low-income backgrounds, many can't afford graphing calculators. All we have in my math class are scientific calculators which aren't useful when it comes time to learn about graphing functions in my Algebra 2 classes. I would be truly appreciative if our classroom gets funded with a set of chargeable graphing calculators which means we wouldn't constantly replace the batteries. This, I feel, is the one thing missing in my math classroom and it would really help with concepts in function transformations, polynomial and rational functions and much more. The use of this technology for my students would really help them grow!

My Project

Many of my students are juniors in high school and therefore, will be preparing to take the SATs. I teach Algebra 2 and I need to get them prepared. Graphing calculators will help them immensely and they should know how to use them before taking the SATs. Please help me reach my goal of getting graphing calculators in my classroom to give these students a fighting chance to get higher math scores and learn to love math by exploring technology and calculations which will help them be successful not just in my math class but also in their future educational endeavors!
