Ms. Weisz from New York NY is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

The Odds of Success

My students need 7 graphing calculators to be able to look at and analyze data and learn to apply technology in processing information.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

We are a community of diverse individuals and learners, at a high-performing, selective college prep school populated with high need students. I teach our college bound graduating class and our more advanced juniors. In preparation for college, the one thing they lack is sufficient exposure to technology.

Give them a pen and paper, ruler, a compass, and these kids can do it all!!! But they're still at a disadvantage to suburban kids with access to all the latest in technology. A graphing calculator is a luxury that most of my students cannot afford. While we do a good job preparing them for the rigor and the level of independence that is needed to be successful in college, they miss out on learning how to apply technology in Math.

Seven TI graphing calculators could make a real difference! Students could buddy up in the classroom and gain the confidence they'll need in facing up to the rigors of college and pre-college mathematics.

With your help this group of future engineers, scientists, and mathematicians will be at a disadvantage to none!
