My students need a class set of calculators to enable them to complete the challenging computations during each lesson. This calculators correspond to the ones that will be used during the state exams.
Most of our students do not have the adequate resources they need to thrive in today's world. However, they continue to come to school and try their best with the limited means they have. They understand the importance of learning and try to see the good in people every day.
Our students are at an disadvantage when they are compared to neighboring counties.
This is not fair to them, they did not ask for it but they make it work.
Students need these specific TI34 multi-view calculators to help them understand the concepts of the lessons we work on. These instruments allow students to free up their cognitive abilities to focus on the problems. We will use these on a daily basis to ensure they are correctly completing the computations.
NYS exams use the same calculators on their tests and my students need to become comfortable using them to ensure they are being used properly.
I would like to be able to give each student a calculator they can take home to help them with their homework but this is the best I can offer them at the moment.
