Geometry--It's Easy as Pi

My students need 25 scientific calculators to learn trig identities in Honors Geometry.

My Students

Our day is started off with something that my students will buy into and will be actively engaged throughout the lesson.

Our school is a low income school with over 3,000 students.

Many times our students only get the two meals that we provide within the school day. We have over 80% of our students graduate high school. Our students are offered several AP, honors, ACP (dual credit classes), and Area 31 Career Center opportunities. Our students could potentially earn their associates degree and graduate high school at the same time. Our students' education is top priority.

My Project

As a teacher of Algebra 1, Pre Calculus, and Geometry Honors my students aren't provided with calculators. All throughout math students need calculators to evaluate trig functions, series and sequence. Finding the area of circles & polygons, and using properties of exponents to name a few. Currently in geometry if students do not have a calculator for trig functions they have to use a chart in order to evaluate their math problems. Also in Pre Calculus a lot of time is used on sequence and series because our students don't have calculators. Our students are forced to use formulas which can be a long process. If provided calculators I will be able to go further in depth with the process and create fun engaging activities that won't take near as long.

When I provide calculators to my students its like giving them the gift they really wanted on Christmas morning.

It makes their lives to much easier. I try every year to emphasize the importance of a calculator in math class, but the students don't have the resources to purchase them. I want to be able to help my students in math and make math easier for them by providing resources they can utilize to make math fun.
