Mrs. Carter from Coweta OK is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Banishing Boring Math Lessons with Dry Erase Boards

My students need access to dry erase boards and dice to help make normally boring math lessons come alive. These supplies will allow students to generate randomized problems to solve and receive immediate feedback from me.

My Students

My students are mathematicians in training. As an upper level math teacher, it is my job to prepare these students for a variety of futures. Some students will take the mathematics we learn in class and apply it in their chosen careers after graduation. Other students need to master the skills we study to improve their ACT scores in order to gain admission to college and earn valuable scholarship money. No matter what path my students choose to take after high school, they deserve to learn math in an engaging environment.

Our high school is located in a rural environment with a rapidly increasing enrollment.

Most of the 10,000 people who live in our community commute to work in a nearby city. Our school serves grades 10-12 with a total of over six hundred students. Approximately half of our students come from low-income households. These students are hard workers and deserve the best education possible.

My Project

I strive to engage my students through meaningful, hands-on experiences on a daily basis.

Dry erase boards will help my students gain much needed practice solving problems and creating graphs.

I have found that students are willing to take many more risks in problem solving while using dry erase markers. The size and portability of the boards allow me to give students the instant feedback they need. The colored dice and Positive and Negative Number Dice will allow students to generate their own problems for lots of needed practice.

For too long math class has been associated with worksheets and never-ending textbook assignments. All these supplies will give us lots of fun and engaging practice that we need to become confident mathematicians. My students' engagement level goes through the roof when they get to generate their own problems to solve instead of solving problems I have written myself.
