My Students

Geometry is a course that requires visualization. At the high school level, we want students to work with models, working our way from the concrete to the abstract. Sometimes we use a pencil and paper. Sometimes the teacher shows a model using technology.

Students who have their own calculator can complete their work outside of the classroom and build confidence in their math and technology skills.

Math standards ask students to explore mathematics using technology to graph and analyze data. Collecting data and analyzing it on a calculator helps make math relevant and interesting to teenagers. It is important to use the same technology at home that is being used in the classroom.

My Project

Currently, my students come in before or after school to borrow the classroom calculators to get assignments completed. Or I just don't assign problems that require the use of a graphing calculator. Providing a calculator for the student to keep for the school year and use at home will allow the student to work on math (and science) on their own schedule while leveling the playing field with those students who have their own graphing calculators.

By donating to this project, you are helping individual students who are deserving of new technology to help them learn math.

These students work hard and do not ask for handouts. Having their own graphing calculator will make them like the rest of the class and help them be more successful. This project will allow me to provide calculators for an entire class.
