Calculators Needed!

Help me give my students calculators so they don't need to use their cell phones in class.

My Students

Students that make it to AP Calculus in high school have serious drive and a passion for learning. They choose to take my class even though there are other easier options available. They come from all different backgrounds but the one thing they have in common is a desire to be challenged.

My students are ordinary kids who do extraordinary things.

They find limits, derive, integrate, and solve differential equations. They study the work of Newton, Euler, Riemann, and Leibniz. They study and work, and then study and work some more. These kids are our future doctors, engineers, physicists, and teachers.

My Project

I am trying to put together a class set of calculators. I currently have 10 and I would eventually like to have 35. If this project gets fully funded, though, I will at least have enough calculators for my students to share with one other person in class time.

Many students try to use their cell phone calculators, but they are awkward to use when it comes to trigonometry, exponents, and logarithms.

Many of my students can't afford their own calculator, so this project would give them the ability to use one while in my classroom.
