Inspire Students by Providing Graphing Calculators as Investigation Tools
My students need TI-84CE graphing calculators to be able to have full access to the investigation tools in the new curriculum we are using.
Our high school has grown almost to capacity. Immigrants from the Middle East, language learners from Southeast Asia and Mexico, and students seeking/needing an alternative to the large class size of the mainstream district schools are the main demographic of our students. We are making a difference in the lives of students who might otherwise have fallen through the gaps at other schools. Our school places a large emphasis on student internships and service in the community, providing all school community service days, as well as an internship/leadership class for juniors and seniors.
The Math department has adopted a new curriculum that is team based, teacher guided investigations.
We all love it and are excited about the possibility of making it possible for students to use all components of the curriculum.
Critical thinking and investigations are a welcome focus to the new math curriculum. Students are asked to notice and wonder.
One of the ways they can do that is to access information, graphs, and tools which are not ordinarily available using a graphing calculator.
Most of our students do not have the financial means to purchase these calculators. To ensure equal access, our goal is to have graphing calculators in each of our math classrooms.
These calculators are the same ones students will use in college level mathematical courses. Giving them access to them now sets them up for success in the future.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
