Numbers Tell a Story!

My students need graphing calculators to make numbers come alive and tell a story. You can change the world with statistics; all we need are the tools.

My Students

Calculators can be a powerful tool for teaching students how to analyze and interpret data. In order for it to really become a tool they know how to use effectively, they need to practice and experiment. We borrow calculators when we can from another teacher and this limits our options.

My students are 7th and 8th graders in a Title I school that focuses on math and science.

My students have a thirst for knowledge and challenge and are eager to understand the world around them. For example, there is a particular group of students who enjoy math so much that they stay after school on Fridays for a math club. It is supposed to last for an hour, but they regularly talk me into staying for 2 hours. Because my students often come from families where they will be the first to attend college, providing rich experiences in math and technology is crucial. Putting powerful math tools in their hands will make all of the difference.

My Project

The TI-NSpire calculator is really a handheld math computer. Because our school has only one computer lab, it is difficult to get time to explore. This calculator has a full statistics package that will take them from basic spreadsheets and graphing to advanced statistical analysis. Because we do many of our own science investigations and experiments, students are invested in the outcomes and conclusions we can find. The calculators and batteries I am requesting will help them bring the numbers to life to tell a story.

Developing math and scientific literacy is a skill they will use throughout their schooling and life.

Using technology to support these skills not only strengthens their understanding of content material, but gives them confidence in navigating today's technological world.
