My students need calculators to help them complete difficult math problems as they progress through their high school math curriculum requirements.
My math classroom is a place for students to master the first two high school math courses so they can then move on to more difficult math topics and complete the maths required to graduate. Some students even going on to take classes such as Pre-Calculus and Calculus.
My students are 9th grade Algebra I students and 10th grade Geometry students who are eager to learn.
As the calculations become more complicated, use of calculators allow students to work faster and more accurately.
A class set of TI-30 XS Multiview calculators graphing calculators will be used every day in our math classes. Since the calculators would be used in a high school that operates on a semester schedule, the calculators will benefit twice as many students. Students who have their own calculators have been using them in class, but with your donation, students who cannot afford the calculator will also have access to the technology. As students progress through the high school math requirements, they are given larger, real-world problems that require technology to assist them in their calculations. Though students can use the calculator provided by the standardized testing program, doing so without practicing throughout the semester leaves them at a disadvantage.
Giving all students access to new technology is an investment in not only their future, but in the community's future.
These calculators allow students to tackle larger and more complex math problems, which will not only help them pass the required classes needed to graduate, but prepare them for college-level work as well.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
