In September, I will be starting my second year of teaching. I love working in a Chicago Public School because it is much different than how I grew up. My children are 90 percent low income and appreciate every little thing I do for them. I have been trying to find a classroom set of calculators for my sixth grade students, but it is just too expensive for me to buy on my own. I am in a self-contained room and calculators are a necessity for the sixth grade math curriculum. Our focus is on fractions, decimals, percents, and ratios. At the beginning of the year, we will be doing three units on decimals. We will be adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing. I like my kids to show their work and then be able to check it with calculators. Since part of the ISAT test is calculator use, I wanted my kids to be familiar with a scientific calculator. We have an entire unit on measurement also. I like when my kids can use a calculator to convert inches to centimeters, etc. I try and bring a few calculators from my house but it doesn't seem to do the trick. If anyone is able to supply a classroom set for my children, it would be greatly appreciated.
