Calculating Excellence

The cost of two class sets of calculators from CDW is $518, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

While we strive toward excellence everyday, in spite of major obstacles, our students still do not receive all the necessary tools to succeed. Even without basic supplies, our students do some amazing things. They want to experience real world events and complete real word tasks. As a teacher, I do my best to provide them with those opportunities, but without some of the basic supplies, I feel like I fail my students. It pains me when they ask questions about why we only have a few working calculators that they need to share. What I really want is a class set of working calculators. With those, the students can complete many of the creative activities we come up with, such as calculating the playground for mulch and supplies, keeping 'pseudo' stock market games, and even keeping their favorite basketball players point averages. I try to prepare them for the real world with these activities, but I need help. Thank you!
