Calculating Tigers

My students need calculators to help develop their math skills. This classroom set of scientific calculators will help them with higher level thinking.

My Students

Some of my students have never used science to understand real life problems. These calculators will encourage my students to learn more about the discipline of science and understand how our everyday lives impact the environment.

I teach at a High School in Houston, TX.

Our school is a Title I school with 76% Hispanic students and over 75% free and reduced lunch. Many students work part-time or full-time along with attending school every day. After they leave school at 3:00 PM, many go to work at 4:00 PM and work until closing time. Only 14% of students that graduate from our High School currently go to and finish college. The average ACT score is currently an 18. Despite the many challenges they face, my students come to school every day with an appetite for success and for learning. Help me give my students the opportunities they need to succeed!

My Project

I am asking for a classroom set of scientific calculators that will engage my students in learning about the environment inside of the classroom. These calculators will give my students the opportunity to learn on their own by figuring out the problems themselves. This project is a great start to my project based learning classroom.

A classroom set of scientific calculators will provide my students with opportunities to expand their scientific knowledge.

The calculators in this project will also spark a scientific interest that is needed in today's always changing global world.
