Help us Calculate a 5 on Our AP Test!

My students need the graphing calculators for the entire AP Stats course (not to mention the AP test) and the Pass the Pigs games so they have a fun way to learn the rules of probability.

My Students

I have a rare mix of students in the traditional high school program and some students that are in an International Baccalaureate program all in a Title I school. They are very driven individuals that try every day to do well so they can succeed and get their diplomas.

Most of them come from single-parent families that strive to keep them in school and on the right track to further themselves and their education.

They worry about so many other things outside of school so as an educator I try to keep it a safe place where I can give them everything they need.

My Project

Pass the Pigs is just a fun game of chance to help teach the students more about probability and how they may create misconceptions about it in their heads. It is a great way to have the students work collaboratively with different roles to ensure everyone is accountable.

The students need graphing calculators for the entire year and for the AP test so they can run tests and calculate things that a normal scientific calculator cannot.

Some students have them already, but most do not because their families cannot afford such a high ticket item. Over the years I have given students any that I can find, including the one my brother and I used in high school, and I try to keep all of their up to speed with updates and batteries.
