Hey...Calculate This!!!

My students need a classroom set of calculators to perform various math, chemistry and biology calculations.

My Students

Unlike traditional schools, the IB curriculum requires scholars to complete 250+ hours of laboratory work. The resources we are requesting will assist our scholars in exceeding those requirements on their journey of becoming knowledgeable, intellectual, and devoted citizens.

Unique to our situation, ours is an brand new start up high school faced with over-arching International Baccalaureate requirements.

In order for our students to meet these rigorous requirements, they must have adequate resources. As an inner-city school, our scholars come to us with a diverse set of challenges and needs. One commonality they all share is that they have a desire to learn and become contributing members of society. In the classroom, our scholars are learning invaluable life skills, as they apply to basic scientific processes, functions, and relationships.

My Project

Accept this challenge and encourage a scholar to become great! With these calculators and by designing tests, conducting experiments, collecting data and openly discussing those findings I believe I can overcome the immediate gratification mentality that plagues our youth and instill in them a sense of self worth and a set of problem solving skills that will never fail them, thus promoting their future successes and the success of our educational system. Take advantage of this opportunity to inspire a young scientist achieve his/her future goals.

An an educator, it has always been my belief that effective learning has always been a "hands-on" process.

In that regard, education in the global climate and the ultimate success depends on their ability to preform at an unprecedented academic level. The resources we are requesting will improve our scholars ability to problem solve, formulate hypothesis, analyze data, and construct a reasonable conclusion to the investigation, as it relates to real world situations and examples.
