Mr. Saracino from Indianapolis IN is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Math Project

My students need calculators for beginning Algebra students.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Every class we start off with a bell ringer where students practice doing previously taught skills. We successively build each class upon previous material. As students master material, we continue to build up math concepts so students can succeed and pass the state tests.

My class consists of middle school students most of which have special needs.

They come from a low socioeconomic background and struggle with basic necessities. Calculators will be a great blessing and support. With a lack of technology in our school, this will be greatly appreciated.

My Project

These calculators will be used everyday for my beginning Algebra students. They will function as the corner stone of the class. Students will all be using the same equipment and will streamline the teaching process. This will allow me to give instruction more efficiently and effectively.

Students will benefit from the use of calculators as they embark on more math in later school years.

Many of these students do not have access to this material or have a hard time bringing it to class.
