Mr. Osborne from Bronx NY is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Chromebooks for Math Classes

My students need Chromebooks so they can access Mathletics and STMath.

My Students

I work with students in the Bronx living with autism, intellectual disabilities and emotional-behavioral disabilities. Many of my students live in single-parent households, in which the parent works full-time. As a result, school provides a safe place for my students to interact with other people in a respectful environment, and to gain experiences that enrich their lives.

All of my students have a strong desire to learn, and amazing potential that I can unlock with the right tools.

I have watched my students work hard to solve multi-step word problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. They work best when they have visual supports to reinforce their learning. For example, my students work well with money, so I have fake bills and coins that I use to demonstrate concepts, and to show the relationship between concepts. When I explain mathematical concepts, and then show the students how to use the concepts with money, I can accelerate their learning.

My Project

At the moment, I have one iMac in my classroom for eight students at a time. I must allocate time among students to allow them to access the computer for research, access to word processing, access to social learning programs, and access to mathematics programs. Additionally, the computer serves as a reward for many students, in that it gives them access to a world outside their neighborhood.

My students will benefit significantly from having access to Chromebooks in the classroom that will allow them access to programs like Social Express, Mathletics, and STMath, but I want to go further.

Chromebooks will allow me to teach students how to use mathematics to evaluate real-world problems, and write papers about their analyses. I would love the opportunity to introduce students to financial analysis - researching commodity prices, and examining the effect of commodity prices on household products - in a way that makes abstract concepts more concrete. Students can conduct research on Chromebooks, and write a daily journal about their findings. Thus, I could teach them mathematics and technical writing at the same time. Chromebooks could allow my students to unlock their potential.
