GEAR UP purchases calculators

The Haywood High School REACH Academy recently received new Ti-84 graphing calculators purchased by Haywood County GEAR UP TN. The calculators will be used during classes, tests, and for preparing and taking the ACT test by helping students to complete mathematical computations by numerical, graphical, and symbolic representation.

Jackie Whitten, Site Coordinator for GEAR UP said, “Our students needed calculators at the high school and the REACH Academy. GEAR UP was able to provide for those needs. Students have 60 minutes to answer 60 math questions on the ACT test. New Ti-84 calculators will help prepare our students for the ACT with classroom practice. We are all working diligently to help our students succeed on the ACT. Higher ACT scores will help our students have better post-secondary opportunities (traditional universities, junior colleges, TCAT, the military, etc.). Our goal is to make sure that all of our students are prepared for post-secondary success.”
