Making Science Based Math Accessible

My students need a classroom set of calculators and a way to organize them for chemistry.

My Students

I work at a low-income school with students from incredibly diverse backgrounds. Many of them work after school jobs to help support their family. A lot of them are working hard to learn English, having recently moved from countries that speak Spanish, Arabic, Russian, and many more.

Despite the challenges that they face, I am impressed every day by their work ethic and the sense of community they bring.

They are always willing to help each other out and striving to make sure that everyone can succeed. I try my best every day to make my content accessible to all of my students.

My Project

In my chemistry class, we often incorporate math so that the students can get practice with data analysis and real-world science skills. The math we do requires a scientific calculator.

Many of my students do not own a calculator and cannot afford to buy one.

Having a classroom set of calculators will help my students feel empowered and able to tackle the problems, instead of feeling frustrated or embarrassed by having to ask classmates to share their calculator.

I currently have a handful of calculators I have purchased with my own money that my students can use but need more to have a full set. No student should be hindered in their learning because they don't own a calculator.
