Help me give my students TI-30XS calculators that can do probability and other advanced functions, an HP printer for color documents, and a TI-CBR2 device that plugs into calculators to graph distances.
My school is a multi-cultural, urban high school located just west of Milwaukee. The Mission of my school is to develop inquiry-driven, independent learners through instruction that is personalized and engaging, with a focus on college/career readiness and 21st-century skill development.
To satisfy student inquiry, there must be a pathway to immediate information, and students need ways to display and check what they discover!
In my classroom, that means that we need ways to visually explore equations and shapes.
My students deserve to be inspired! They need ways to access math that differ from previous, unsuccessful modes. Many of my students have nearly failed their last math class(es), and we need to find new ways to make connections.
My students need calculators. The selected model is yellow and difficult to take. Previously, our classes shared a limited supply of cheap calculators, and not every student would have one. This is especially tough because I do not allow phone (calculator) use for tests! The TI-CBR2 device connects to the few graphing calculators I purchased and can graph distance.
My students cannot afford their own technology!
Some data organization is color-coded. Our copier is b/w only, so my students miss out on color-rich documents. Having my own printer will allow me to put these documents into their hands, as well as allow me to print out missed assignments.
