Clutching Calculators

My students need 5 graphing calculators to use during the school year.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Technology is an ever present part of today's society. It is also an essential part of the classroom. In math classes, calculators are our number one necessity.

My students come from a variety of homes.

Several students are children of military families, moving every 3-4 years and constantly adjusting to new surroundings. Regardless of their home lives, my students are eager to learn. They are present with eagerness and enthusiasm towards learning.

My Project

In math, graphing calculators are more than a necessity. Students learn how to use the calculator as an accessory. It helps them discover formulas and rules, graph lines and shapes, perform statistical calculations, etc. The calculators I am asking for will help these students from Pre-Algebra through Calculus.

Calculators are a great help in math class, deterring students from frustration and giving up.

Your donations will provide the students with the extra accessory needed for a future of mathematical success.
