Compasses And Protractors Needed

The cost of 36 Fiskars® Softgrip Compasses and 3 packs of 12 Protractors with Angle Arms is $178, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I currently teach math to junior high students. The students from my school are predominately English as a Second Language Learners. Approximately 99% receive free lunches. All of the units I teach in class touch on Geometry. Within these units, students need to measure polygons and circles. With this information they find area, perimeter circumference, volume, etc. The compasses and protractors I currently have are very old and many are broken. More alarming, the compasses I have are made of metal that have a very sharp point. VERY DANGEROUS!!!! I am hoping for a class set of compasses and protractors so that my children can learn geometric concepts with the ease of new and safe equipment. Thank you for your consideration.
