Mrs. Anderson from Fredonia WI is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Making Higher Level Math More Accessible With Graphing Calculators

My students need TI-84 Graphing Plus calculators to graph complicated functions more quickly and to facilitate making connections between graphs, equations, tables, and situations.

My Students

My many mathematicians range greatly in age, family background, ability, and so much more.

While many of the factors that make up my student have a large variance, one thing is consistent: They are all held to a very high expectation.

My students come from a rural Wisconsin community that is about 20 miles outside of a major metropolitan area. While they are relatively close to an urban area, many of my students rarely travel outside of our rural community.

My Project

I am requesting 5 TI-84 graphing calculators to help build my classroom set. Currently, my set consists of a mix of 18 TI-81, TI-83, TI-86 and TI-84 graphing calculators for classes that average between 20 and 23 students. It would be nice for each student to have a graphing calculator and even better if they were all the same. Giving directions on key strokes and navigating the necessary menus can be difficult for the four different calculators.

My students need graphing calculators not only for daily calculations but also to more deeply investigate graphs of functions, analyze data, and see the solutions to more complicated equations and systems of equations in many different representations.

With everyone using a TI-84 graphing calculator, a more updated form of technology than the TI-81, TI-83 and TI-86 models, on a regular basis in the classroom student learning and engagement will be increased.
