My Students

Math is fun! I tell my students that every day to help them get motivated to do math. It is common for many students to struggle with high school math and my exceptional students are no exception to this. In order to assist them in their math this year it is essential that I am able to provide them with calculators for them to complete their work and math explorations every day in class.

Math is fun!

I hope that my excitement and passion for math will encourage my students as they overcome their preconceptions of math. My students are special in so many ways and we are going to have an awesome year in Mrs. Dean's Algebra I class. Many of my students do not have a strong background in math. However, they are super smart and hardworking.

My Project

Because math is not a spectator sport, my students need the calculators in order to assist them with their calculations as they dive into algebra. Practice, practice, practice is the key to learning math and when students do not have math facts in their head they can be assisted by using a calculator when solving equations.

Many of my students have a weak math background and one of the best ways to learn algebra is with manipulatives like algebra tiles.

They will be able to set up and work with equations as they learn to work with combining like terms and increasing their number sense.
