Every student learns differently and many of our students work best through exploration and discovery rather than lecture. With the use of iPads and the app-enabled ball called Sphero, math, physical science, technology, and robotics are fused together allowing my students to investigate Common Core Mathematics standards, like percents and angles, in a fun and engaging way! I am trying to provide my students with meaningful real-world lessons through action and experimentation without the limitations of standards, testing, and sitting still. Your generous donation will improve my students understanding through applications of these devices and open their minds to think about the world outside the classroom in mathematical dimensions! It will give rise to students who will explore STEM vocations in their lives beyond their educational career. I truly believe that using iPads is a pivotal point in their exploration and success in math.
