Mrs. Fulcher from New Deal TX is requesting instructional technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Nspire Our Minds

Help me give my students three calculators for a classroom set of TI-Nspire CX II calculators that will help prepare them for their STAAR test and the use of the calculators in high school.

My Students

My students come from a very diverse set of homes, some with access to basic needs and much lacking access to even a pencil to write with. A lack of supplies should not be what keeps a child from learning.

My students love technology!

They are at an exciting time in their lives. I have many students who have a desire to further what they are learning in the classroom and a desire to try new things. My students are willing to do what they need to in class but sometimes come without basic supplies due to a lack of funds at home.

My Project

We have almost a full set of calculators for our classroom. Help us get the last few! I teach at a small rural public school with a very limited budget. The calculators, TI-nSpires, that I am requesting are a game-changer for my 8th-grade students. Many of my students are economically disadvantaged. Having a classroom set of TI-nSpire CX II calculators will help prepare my students for their STAAR test and the use of calculators in high school.

My students LOVE technology!

Eighth grade is the first time where students are able to use calculators on both unit assessments as well as their state exam (STAAR). When students come to my classroom, they have a lot of gaps, and more times than not are multiple grade levels behind. Although students having a calculator is not a quick fix, it will help students tremendously throughout the year in order for them to be successful. Their end of the year assessment is 100% calculator active, and students without them are stuck trying to solve equations or problems that would have taken half the time with calculators. Throughout the year, students learn a lot of tips and tricks to help them solve math problems in ways they never have before.
