My Students

My students will be the first to tell you that Math is not their favorite subject. Despite their frustrations, they continue to work hard. I teach Algebra II and many of my students are taking this for the second time or have been identified as a struggling learner in Math. Algebra II is a required course in the state of Indiana for a student to get a core 40 diploma.

These students work so hard to pass this course!

One tool that these students need to be successful in the classroom is a good calculator! The TI-30XS multiview calculator gives these students the support they need to be successful. I love the smiles and boasting I get from students when they pass a test or get their first A on a quiz.

My students are gaining confidence and their skills are improving daily.

My Project

My students have great imaginations and creativity. They are masters of public speaking and have collaboration skills that would put adults to shame. Many are already involved in various trades, the arts, and agricultural fields. They are a great groups of students that take pride in their chosen career paths and local community. I believe I have the best students! Did I mention they all hate Math? I teach students who struggle with Math courses. These students work hard everyday to overcome their math anxiety and succeed in this class. I currently have a small variety of calculators in the classroom to assist students, but every students knows, the best calculator to acquire before class is the TI-30XS. I have student asking teachers to leave classes early on test days to be able to grab one of these for a test or quiz. I want to offer this technology boost to all my students without them having to fight over resources.
