My Students

A typical day in my math class involves students working using a variety of tools. This year, our state is allowing students to use calculators as one of the tools. As 6th graders, they are expected to already know how to add, subtract, multiply and divide. Further depth is taught using calculators.

Students at my school come from rural South Carolina.

Most fall into a low socio-economically challenged category. In order to even the "playing field" it is important they all have the same devices. By having class sets of calculators, all students will have the same opportunity for success.

My Project

Students will use the calculators everyday to problem solve everyday real-life problems. These problems are aligned to the South Carolina standards. This year, students are going to be allowed to use calculators on our state standardized test. Unfortunately, we do not have enough for all students to have one at the same time. In order for them to be successful, they need to have one in their hands every day.

Providing the students with the calculator will help them be more successful as they tackle these real-life problems as well as the state mandated test at the end of the year.

Passing the state tests, shows that they have met the standard for their grade level and builds confidence moving on to 7th grade.
