My Students

I am the math content leader for a small, rural school district in Western New York. The students here come to school everyday with a smile on their face, ready to learn and enjoy the day's lessons.

The students come from many different backgrounds but all have something in common - they love learning.

The students love STEAM - Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math - activities. The students are growing up in a world in which they will need such skills and content knowledge. As a teacher I look to provide as many of these opportunities as possible to my students.

My Project

My students love to participate in STEAM research projects in which they come up with a question to research. These projects are interdisciplinary and incorporate science, technology, art, and math. By having calculators to utilize, students can spend their brain power solving the problem at hand. These calculators will allow students more time to practice 21st century skills such as working in collaborative groups, problem solving, and driving their own education through questioning and research. These calculators will help students continue to be motivated and engaged in their research projects as opposed to be turned off by minor calculation errors.
