Graphing Calculators Needed For College-Bound Title I Students

My students need graphing calculators to visualize mathematical relationships and compete against students across the state academically.

My Students

We are a Title I school district with 100% of our students receiving free or reduced breakfast and lunch. We are the only high school in our small district, and our neighborhood is in a zipcode that has had the state's highest foreclosure rate since the recession of 2007. As a result, funds are finite and only decreasing as the years pass. Many of these children come from single-parent, extended, and/or blended families. They come from challenges some people may not understand, but our students try their best to leave their problems at the door each day and excel academically.

My students are part of the College Prep Academy within the school.

This means that my kids are academically accelerated and work hard each day to complete two years of math in a single year. They are driven, hard-working and inventive despite the prevailing circumstances. They have the best attitudes you could ask for. It is truly a pleasure to know them, and I hope through this DonorsChoose project I can give something back to them.

My Project

My students need more technology to be competitive with their counterparts across the state. Graphing calculators will allow them to see the behavior of algebraic relationships. It will help them connect math to the real-world and make predictions based on the behaviors of the graphical models created using graphing calculators.

Handheld technology gives our students the experience of physically manipulating data and observing change in real time.

It can be the difference between a good learning activity and a great learning experience.

Our students are college bound, and need these tools to be competitive in post-secondary life. With graphic calculators, we can give them this advantage.
