We are teaching math students at a suburban high school where almost 50% of our students qualify for free or reduced-price lunches. I have high achieving students who choose to take challenging courses such as pre-calculus and AP Calculus. We also teach students who need concrete, hands on, real world innovative lessons and manipulative to understand complex ideas.
Not all of these students can afford innovative supplies or technology such as graphing calculators for their math and science classes.
We want these students to have access to resources like textbooks, manipulatives, supplies, and technology that they can use each day to prepare for their future. Teachers also need access to technology to create innovative and engaging lessons.
Your support will help students do well in math classes and on their tests.
Graphing Calculators are an integral part of teaching mathematics these days. They are required on the AP Calculus exam and important for students to see trends, relationships and complex graphs.
Technology is not something every student has access to but it is something they need to be able to use to be successful beyond high school.
We will use these calculators daily for real life applications of complex mathematics and to prepare for standardized tests like ACT, SAT and Advanced Placement exams.
I want my students at a public high school to have the same opportunities other schools have and be prepared to compete in a competitive world.
