Part 1: Calculators and Plastic Binder Pockets for At Risk Geometry Students

The cost of 80 vinyl storage pouches from Office Depot and 10 scientific calculators from Quill Corporation is $590, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

This is part 1 of a 3 part proposal. I will be putting in the other proposals once I am able to submit more proposals. I teach geometry to risk students in a San Francisco public high school. I am asking for calculators and pockets so that they can keep them in their binders. This will let us get 10 calculators and vinyl pouches for all the students for when they all have a calculator. The next 2 parts will allow us to get 20 more calculators so that all students in one class have the same calculators. Currently I have several different kinds of calculators that they can only use in the room. These students are juniors or seniors who have had problems with mathematics and need geometry to graduate from high school. They come into the class having failed a lot of their previous mathematics courses. The first semester is spent covering first through eigth grade geometry standards which they do not come into the class knowing. There is a high success level because they are starting at the right place. By the 2nd semester students are up to the place where they can understand and learn 10th grade geometry. The calculators will really help them on harder problems with decimals and fractions. They will use them to check their problems. They also need them to do trigonometry. It would be wonderful for them all to start out and have the same calculator. Galileo Academy will not receive as much funding as we have in the past and so we will not be able to buy them.
