Help me give my students a calculator to help them build confidence in math.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My classroom is comprised of a group of students who represent many racial, economic, and social groups. Our school has 75% of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch and 50% of the students receive SPED and/or ESL services. It is a part of a small community of schools that values inquiry-based thinking and collaboration. We also follow the International Baccalaureate Organization model.
The International Baccalaureate model aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
The IB program will help the students become responsible members of local, national and global communities. It is an exciting way to learn concepts in school with a different way of thinking.
My 6th and 7th-grade students need a calculator to help them compute mathematical processes in our classroom. We will use these calculators to solve problems on our bell work, class assignments, and select assessments.
These calculators will give the students the tools to be able to compute more complex problems and build their confidence in math.
Students will use the calculators to build their confidence by not having to worry about the simple computing. Instead, they will learn more about the process of solving problems.
My goal is for select students to use this daily during math class. This will help students be successful when taking their assessments and completing class assignments.
