My students are inquisitive, determined, and always full of questions. They are young adults trying to figure out who they are as people with various interests, learning styles, and unique qualities.
In my class, there is a great sense of community where no question, opinion, or concern is overlooked.
I teach a 9th grade resource room for students with various learning disabilities. Regardless of their background, everyone helps everyone when they are able to or when they have the proper resources.
The calculators will be used by a group of high school students with learning disabilities whose families are unable to afford a TI 30X calculator of their own. The TI 30X calculator is a great tool used for math and science classes throughout high school. This calculator enables students to see exactly what is being typed into the calculator, easily delete any mistake they may make while calculating, and look back on previous calculations when needed. The TI 30X also has a wide variety of functions, such as fractions, exponents, logarithms, trigonometric functions, statistics, radicals, and much more that will be taught and used throughout their high school career.
The calculators will be used by 6 different classes of high school special education students as they are working on various math or science assignments.
The calculators will help benefit countless students in their academic studies throughout many years to come. In two different resource rooms, my colleague and I only have 3 scientific calculators that are in good usable condition. Currently, students are instead asked to use a handheld calculator that has limited abilities and can be difficult for them to use on complex problems.
