My Students

I teach a diverse level of students. My lowest level is a basic Algebra 2 course for juniors and seniors who are ending their mathematics career when they finish my class. They have usually failed Algebra 1 or Geometry before coming to me. These students need structure, accountability, and someone to teach them how to be organized. Not having homework or notes as a reference for assessments is detrimental to this level of student because they have nothing to study even when I say you can use anything you hang onto on the assessment.

AP Statistics students in my class are a diverse mixture which makes everyday interesting: they are serious and some are extremely funny, they are theatrical, artistic, and athletes.

All are involved in some extra-curricular club. They are driven to be their best. Either they take my class after they have finished Calculus or concurrently with another mathematics course.

My Project

A class set of Everlast Rocketbooks will be used to help students take notes in class. Not only will this help on paper since the Rocketbook can be easily cleaned with water but the students can store the notes that they just took in several places. They can send them to their school Google folder where the notes can be organized for mathematics by chapter.

At the same time, they can send them to their home computer so this will give them two sets of notes organized in folders on their computers; not wadded up pieces of paper at the bottom of their backpack.

Students can also do this same process when doing their homework for class. This should cut down on the number of lost assignments.
