I am a special education teacher for an Introductory Competency Math class at Heide Trask High School in Pender County. This class includes high-risk special education students in grades 9-12. Trask is an economically disadvantaged school with 54% of students receiving free lunch and 7% non-English speaking students. Our Introductory Competency Math class provides students with the tools necessary to pass the North Carolina Competency Test of Mathematics, which is required to receive a high school diploma. One tool provided to students during the test is the TI-83 plus calculator. Unfortunately, these calculators are not provided throughout the semester due to lack of funds. Students are given low-tech, general calculators that have many fewer functions and operations. This confuses students when they are given the TI-83 plus calculator during the test. Students are uncertain where specific keys are located and are unsure of how to perform specific operations needed to correctly answer questions on the test. After providing initial training, students will continue to use the donated resources to complete math assignments throughout the year. I estimate that the resources requested would be used for 90 hours each semester.
