My Students

My school is an inner city school in which most of the population will be the first in their family to attend college. Many of my students are immigrants or first generation Americans like myself. Their parents work hard to provide a safe home environment for them with few resources. My seniors chose to take a fourth year math course during their senior year with the goal of being better prepared for college and life after high school. Many of the students are currently working their first job while attending school. They are paying for transportation (car, bus, etc) and providing for themselves as they enter adulthood.

My Project

My students do not have the money to buy their own TI-84 graphing calculators. College math classes and SAT tests allows the use of these calculators, but my students do not have access. Because of the cost of one calculator (over $100) my students are not able to use this type of technology. This is a disadvantage to them as their families do not have the financial ability to pay. My low income students will benefit from using these calculators in class. For years, these calculators have been the choice of mathematics educators. Please consider helping me purchase a classroom set.
