My Students

The students that will benefit from this technology are hard working 11th and 12th graders, mostly in math class with a few in science class as well. I am proud to say that these students are some of the most friendly and respectful students that I have ever worked with. These students work hard to achieve in an older building and in a district facing ever increasing budget cuts. The use of technology is an important key to their success in the classroom.

The technology I am hoping to purchase is a set of TI-84 graphing calculators with an interactive emulator which can be projected.

These calculators are an upgrade from the TI-83 calculators which are used in many schools, including ours. They are compatible enough that students will be comfortable using either but our advanced students will enjoy new features available on the TI-84.

My Project

We currently use the TI-83 plus graphing calculator for our math and science students. While these calculators are exceptionally powerful calculators, the newer version, the TI-84 CE, has improved programming that greatly helps with understanding and processing more difficult problems in advanced classes such as Trigonometry and Calculus.

The software included allows us to project an interactive TI-84 on the board for the class to see.

This feature is priceless as we demonstrate to a class complex techniques on the calculators that require many key strokes, and a lot of practice! These new calculators will be the first step in upgrading our technologies in graphing calculators.
