Bolt into Mathematics

Help me give my students a tool to improve their STEM education. We will be able to use the Sphero Bolt robot to enhance our math lessons and teach students about how math and technology are connected.

My Students

I have quickly realized, as a high school math teacher, that many students do not enjoy math. Either they have struggled so much with it that they have given up, or they never had a clear understanding of the subject to begin with.

I would like for my students to find that math is fun, and I believe this can happen by incorporating activities into their lessons.

I can make this happen with new engaging supplies! My students need this push at times to make sure that they learn and pay attention. I don't want to lose a single student and have them fall behind.

My Project

With a constant push towards STEM learning, I want to be able to incorporate more technology into my mathematics class to intrigue my students. While the Sphero Bolt is not something that I have used before, I am looking forward to learning with my students and incorporating it into my lessons.

I always strive to find ways to make math more interesting for students!

Since I teach NC Math 2, I am hoping to incorporate the Bolt into my first unit, Geometric Transformations. I am hoping that the Bolt will be able to demonstrate the change in the coordinates for some of these transformations. I am certain, as I learn more about this tool I will be able to incorporate it into more units and lessons.
