Physics Class Needs Calculators!

My Students

My classes are full of students who overcome so much adversity. Hurricane Harvey devastated the community, and many families are still recovering from the damage.

Most of our students struggle financially, yet they go the extra mile to learn and complete work they cannot complete at home.

Hours are spent in the library and tutorials because they lack the resources at home.

Even with all of these struggles, our students have worked hard to pass their classes and earn their diplomas.

My Project

Physics is an incredibly math-heavy science class. It is vital for students to have their own calculator during labs and exams to reduce temptation and enhance student learning.

My physics classroom currently only has 4 working, outdated calculators for classes of up to 20 students.

It was common that students would complete a calculation, share their calculator with a classmate, but then lose track of their thoughts when they would have to wait to get a calculator back.

The TI-Nspire calculators will be perfect for my classes. We currently own motion detectors that are not compatible with my 4 calculators, but they ARE compatible with the TI-Nspires. These allow students to review and edit previous calculations which can be the difference for many of my students who struggle with physics content.
