My students are energetic, eager to learn, hard-working, and fun. They are a diverse group of unique individuals all striving to overcome learning obstacles in order to achieve their academic goals.
All the students in my classroom are struggling learners who are impacted by memory, processing and focusing issues that cause them to need additional support to be successful in school.
Despite their struggles, these students strive for success and push themselves to be the best students and people they can be.
Learning to use calculators, for students who struggle with math processing, is a functional life skill. Some students do not have the resources to purchase their own calculator. Having a set of calculators for students to access and learn to use appropriately is invaluable.
Higher level math concepts are hard enough to master if you do not have a deficit in math processing.
Calculators are a necessary tool to allow students to focus on how to work towards solving a problem instead of having to expel energy in trying to recall basic facts.
Knowing how to use a calculator will not only benefit students in the classroom, it will also give them a skill they can use in their everyday life, now and after high school.
