Ms. Palkoner from Somerville TN is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Math in Science?

My students need a class set of calculators in order to do math review and science math in class.

  • $500 goal

This project expired on August 9, 2015.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Math in science what is that? How can I do math without a calculator? Why do I have to do math the way you did in school? Something I hear quite a bit. This can be achieved with the help of these calculators.

My students are curious and need that extra support with calculators in order to become confident.

This can be achieved with your help. We need the calculators to help us understand basic math skills in the science classroom. Students need the extra boost with these supplies.

My Project

The students will be using the calculators to help us support the math curriculum in the science classroom as a way to check our work. I am a teacher that has the students work out their math first then check their answers with the calculators, it is the best way to do this!

Students will become more confident in their skills with the use of these calculators.

Again this is something we use to support the math curriculum in the science classroom but the science classroom does not have a set of calculators so please help us achieve that goal.
