My students need 6 materials to help me teach the new Common Core Standards in Mathematics.
Do you remember learning straight from a textbook when you were a student? Or did you have a teacher that did fun, exciting activities to help you learn?
I have over 90 students ranging in ages from 13 to 15.
Their ability levels range from low average to above average. We live in a rural community and our school is comprised of locals who have been here most if not their whole lives as well as military families who move in and out every few years.
In 2012-2013 we will begin using the Common Core Standards for Mathematics as our course of study. The standards will involve activities that require higher order thinking skills for students. Instead of students being given a math problem and returning with the answer, activities will be used that will guide students to discover the process for finding those answers. Students will also be involved in activities that will help them to see how math is used in their every day life. The current textbooks that we are using are about 6 years old and do not have many activities beyond question and answer. My request is for books that I can use with my students to teach the new standards in a way that will be inviting and engaging. There are a multitude of activities that encourage learning processes and methods to reaching the correct answer to a problem.
Your donation will make it possible for me to have multiple resources with which to teach my students the new Common Core Standards for Mathematics.
They will engage in hands-on activities that will encourage learning. They will be prepared for the tests at the end of the year as well as prepared for the next math course they will take. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
