My students need ten TI-84 Graphing Calculators for solving physics problems.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My physics students are curious and interested in our world. They are an incredibly diverse group from around the world. Many speak other languages, yet all come together to learn. Regardless of their culture, all families want their children to learn everything they can and prepare for a successful future.
Like most students today, they infuse technology into all of their activities.
Having access every day helps them learn about physics. Science classes are great for allowing all students to integrate technology into learning concepts.
Graphing calculators allow students to do very complex calculations and show work. In physics, it is a great tool. While we have been using regular scientific calculators the graphing calculators would be a good addition. While costly, they allow students to graph.
I use many activities from the American Modeling Teachers Association where graphing is an integral part of developing knowledge of equations.
These calculators will help my students more quickly develop those skills. As we adjust physics to a bit earlier there will be more students that don't have their own graphing calculator. So building a class set will help them. This project is the first of several to start toward the 30 needed for a class set.
