Students at my school are beyond brilliant and come from many diverse cultures. Every single student has a passion for learning, which is displayed through many varying learning styles. While many of my students do well with basic instruction, I see my students THRIVE when they have the opportunities to work alongside each other in small groups! Their wacky characteristics and fun attitudes not only provide a light-hearted mood in the classroom but also provide an exciting atmosphere of learning and cooperation that all diverse cultures benefit from!
Beginning with 6th grade math, students will use calculators to conduct basic arithmetic in the classroom. Because students are building on their previous multiplication and division skills from 5th grade, they use calculators to forgo the process of writing out the simple operational skills and use a calculator to more effectively solve problems at a quicker pace.
As of right now, my students are using calculators that are several years old.
Most do not work correctly, and often not at all. As it stands, many of my students are using the Google calculator on their Chromebooks in class. While this works, an internet calculator is not an option for Benchmark or State testing! Help me improve their class by improving their calculators!
