How Do You Manage High School Without A Graphing Calculator?

My students need two graphic calculators to use in my classroom.

My Students

My student desire to double check their Math test, homework and quizzes -- without graphing calculators it is a challenge checking their work in Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, Probability & Statistics.

Students range from 9th grade to 12 grade in all classes with a desire to be successful in their math classes, which they are earning high school credits for graduation.

My students are great students who are respectful, caring and appreciate of help from others.

My Project

I am asking for two graphing calculators that are required in all high school math classes in South Carolina. Currently I am having to borrow a TI-84 from another teacher at my school. The graphic calculators I have selected are very helpful when you have access to use while checking Math homework, quizzes or even test. The TI-84 is allowed to be use on the South Carolina Algebra 1 End of Course Exam.

This donation will help us as a class by providing 2 TI-84 Graphic Calculators.

Allowing 2 students to double check their Math homework, quizzes or test at the same time will be a blessing. Currently with our borrowed TI-84 only 1 student can check their work at the time.
