My Students

My students are a diverse group of children. This year I am teaching computer science and mathematics. The students in this course are taking it as a math credit and will gain practical math and computer science programs. Many of my students are lower level but want to have greater success in math. Many of my students are below the poverty line and depend on school for meals, socialization, emotional needs and educational support. I teach inclusion courses so I have all skill levels and abilities. I teach math and as most know it is a very difficult course for most students. They love hands on activities. Since many are struggling learners the more ways I can introduce and teach a subject the better each student will improve and perform.

My Project

The computer science and mathematics course just started five days ago. In five days the class has doubled in size. The materials I currently have are not enough to work with so many students. I am in need of several more robots, but am collecting them one at a time. While working on the computers it has become apparent that a track pad on the laptop is not very efficient and the kids have asked to have a mouse to use.

The Mindstorm EV3 robot with be used to teach coding and mathematics in future lessons.

In total the class needs 8 robots before the spring. With the help of DonorsChoose.org the class has its first one already.
