My Students

I teach in a rural middle school in Eastern Oklahoma. My students are in the 7th and 8th grade and have a very diverse background. I have a select group of students who excel in math, but a large portion of students I see have a history of not liking math and struggle with it. It is my job to find a way for them to enjoy Math and not be afraid of it.

Most students are not able to receive extra help from their parents because they may struggle with math as well or work a job that interferes with being available to help them.

My Project

I am asking for three TI MultiView Teacher Packs of calculators. My students will be using these calculators when solving problems that are focused on teaching concepts rather than teaching how to type it in the calculator. I teach 7th and 8th grade math. Students should know how to calculate already, but the reality is that not all do. I address this throughout the year at different times. Students understand the new concepts being taught, but struggle with basic calculations.

With the ability to use a calculator as a tool to help assist with certain calculations my students will be able to feel just as successful as those who are able to calculate quickly.
