Ms. Tolbert from Winder GA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Finishing the Drill--Graphing at Capacity!

My students need more graphing calculators! A year ago, I requested & received full funding for a set of 30 Ti-84 graphing calculators, but my largest class is 34. I'd love enough for the whole class!

My Students

The students in my classroom are great kids who often need that extra encouragement to remember to do their best and stay on track. Many don't have access to computers or technology at home, so it's important to have a few calculators my upperclassmen can check out to use at home for their advanced classes while still leaving enough for my freshmen to learn the basics of the graphing calculators as they enter the world of quadratic and exponential functions. The classroom set of 30 doesn't allow for that, so I am hoping to add another ten to my set. This would be enough for up to 6 students to check them out overnight and still leave 34 for my larger Algebra I class to use during class instruction.

My Project

As my Algebra I students enter the realm of graphing functions, it would be wonderful if there were enough graphing calculators for everyone to have their own to use during class. The classroom set I have contains 30, but my largest class is 34. Additionally, some of my AP Statistics students like to sign the calculators out to take home with them, leaving me with less than 30 on most days. I would love to have enough to go around as needed so that students can have hands-on experience with technology for graphing functions as we move from linear to quadratic and exponential functions.
