My Students

Our classroom is a safe place for students to come and know that no matter what is going on in their life, we will make them feel welcomed and accepted by everyone. The class is a mix of general education students, special education students, and students in need of Academic Intervention Services (AIS). These students come from a variety of economic backgrounds which means that the students come to us at many different levels.

Our classroom design and learning experiences help students develop tolerance for people from all walks of life.

Creating a comfortable learning environment and providing many different types of learning experiences contribute to the success of our students.

My Project

When teaching how to find the surface area of three dimensional shapes, it is very difficult for students to visualize all of the two dimensional shapes that make up the net of the three dimensional solid. Although we use paper nets and solids, it can still be hard for students to truly understand finding surface area.

Being able to provide the students with the three-dimensional shape and corresponding net will assist them in the process of finding surface area along with creating a visual to better understand the procedure.

Currently, I have one set of these shapes and it is difficult to share them with 25 students in each math class. This project will provide me with 8 more sets of geometric shapes so that I can allow a few students to share each set.
