My students need a laptop in order to use the Promethean board in the front of the classroom.
Do you remember the challenges of algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus? My students are having trouble understanding many concepts. They need hands-on experience. Technology brings math to life. Technology will help visual, auditory and tactile learners.
Our school is located in a major city.
The students come from middle to lower income families. More than 50% of the students receive free or reduced lunch. Our school is very diversified. The students come from different locations in the city. We offer many math classes which range from consumer math to calculus. Many of the students are college bound. It is a large school whose classes are filled to the maximum level. The recent budget cuts have made a tremendous impact on our school. The students have difficulty getting the supplies that they need. Even with these constraints the students strive for success.
If the students had a laptop in the classroom they would be able to use the Promethean board that is in front of the classroom covering the blackboard. The Promethean board allows the students to have hands-on experiences. Hands-on experiences help the students tremendously. Additionally, we will be able to access web sites that will bring mathematics to life. They will have the opportunity to explore the concepts that are being taught. They will be able to see how mathematics is used in the real world. The students will be able to see and understand the value of the topics being taught. Mathematics is difficult for many students. The use of technology in the classroom will be an enormous asset to the students.
A laptop in the classroom will allow students to have hands-on experiences.
These experiences will provide understanding and diversity inside the classroom. Many students need different ways to look at a problem. With a laptop they will be able to explore the concepts being taught and they will see how math is brought to life. This will excite the students, which in turn will increase the interest in the class. When the students are motivated they will perform better.
