Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am requesting a class set of 30 TI-15 Explorer calculators for my 4th grade class. Calculators are a great way to provide interest and feedback for students. While basic math skills are extremely important, having students check their work with the use of calculators provides not only immediate response to their work, but also teaches them how to use these valuable tools. The Texas Instruments-15 Explorer calculators are designed to go beyond the traditional four operation models and delve into fractions, decimals and percents. By providing a more advanced, but still age appropriate calculator, my current and future students will be better prepared for the calculator skills required as they take and manipulate data in their science classes and work with advanced calculators in high school math.
