Goal

To purchase 8 TI 84 CE graphing calculators for check out by underserved students, who cannot afford to purchase one of their own, to increase their achievement in our cross-curricular math teaching initiative.  

 

What will be done with my students

Our students are all in STEM based Career Technical Education fields. In the Certified Nursing Assistant and Veterinary Assistant programs we will be doing pharmacology math. In Construction, Electrical and Marine Mechanics we will be working on olms and amps. Our Game and Simulation program and Industrial Graphic Design program will be doing coding math and conceptual math including proportions and ratios. On top of Algebra, Geometry, or Pre-Calculus, all our students take substantial quantities of ancillary math. 

 

Benefits to my students

Our math projects include all the types of math discussed and more, making a good graphing calculator a necessity. For our cross-curricular initiative to flourish, all our students need access to graphing calculators, good calculators, that can handle these tasks and offer students their best opportunity for success inclusively.  

 

Describe the Students

Our program population is very diverse and consists of 16% of students with ESE accommodations, about 20% have 504 accommodations and almost 50% of our students are on free and reduced lunch. The male to female population is equally split and we have a good mix of low and high performers. All my students, however, are highly dedicated and eager to learn; they take school very seriously and look forward to college and beyond while working in their chosen trade.
