Calculators for All!

My students need calculators to use in math class so that they can fully understand and apply the various concepts and processes of solving problems in an Advanced Algebra classroom.

My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful, and hardworking students who are eager to learn different aspects of mathematics! They love hands-on activities, engaging projects and challenges in math class that get them thinking outside the box! They come to school each day ready to try new things, step out of their comfort zones, and to grow personally and academically. They truly are an inspiration to me! Some students are getting discouraged from completing classwork because of the lack of calculators in the classroom, so I hope to have a full set of calculators for my students to use on their own!

My Project

Using calculators in the math classroom is an effective way to engage and support learners of all levels and styles. As dedicated mathematicians, my students can benefit from being able to have access to their own calculator when in class. As an Advanced Algebra class, it is crucial for my students to have calculators when studying topics such as exponential functions, logarithmic functions, trigonometric functions, and alike. My classroom currently only has 5 functioning calculators that students need to share so I hope to have a full class set of calculators so that each student can practice and individually master mathematical concepts on their own.
