Calculating Our Potential in Physics: Part I

My physics and physical science students need 10 solar-powered scientific calculators.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Could you do physics without a scientific calculator? Previously, only about half of my college-prep high school students have had their own scientific calculator. Without them, my high school physics students cannot effectively work problems that involve exponents or trig functions. Learning to solve these problems is crucial in their preparation for college. I'd like a set of solar powered scientific calculators for my classroom. We don't need fancy graphing calculators; we just need basic scientific calculators so that my students can do problems that use scientific notation or calculate the components of vectors. By donating a calculator, you can help improve science education in South Carolina!
