Mrs. McElwee from Pinetops NC is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students five graphing calculators so that they can succeed in their Algebra I class!
We are a rural middle school in one of the poorest counties in North Carolina and as such, are always striving to find ways to reach out and give our students the opportunities that they need to succeed in life. Students come from backgrounds that encourage students to take menial jobs and not to strive for academic success. We try to encourage students to reach out and strive further by showing them opportunities for advancement in life through education and excellence.
It takes a village to raise a child but we need to encourage not only our community but our educational leaders to raise the attitude and beliefs of the middle school students we are working with and as such, succeed.
This is a major factor that we believe in and want our students to know so much is out there for them to be outside of their community if they try.
We are requesting five graphing calculators so that they can succeed in their Algebra I class! These calculators will make it so that students do not have to share calculators when doing higher math functions in Algebra I in Eighth grade.
We have several students with broken calculators due to a great deal of use in the math classes.
Just these few calculators will help replace those that are broken and enable them to not only do the math sections, but the graphing sections as well. It is hard to do the math assignments and to succeed when calculators are sticking or just do not want to work due to just being used a lot.
We have replaced several calculators, but due to funding, we find we are short a few more - and do not have the funds at this time to replace them. I would love to be able to have a few to work with and enable all of my students in other grades to have some experience working with graphing functions too.
