My Students

I teach math and I am exposing my students to aviation, technology, and engineering in my instructions. My students are an inquisitive, active group of 80 sixth graders who love learning. My students are 21st century learners who thrive when they are learning using their hands or are engaged.

Over seventy percent of our students are economically disadvantaged.

Some of them don't even have a computer or internet at home, but data shows that students learn more when I can incorporate differentiated learning into daily instruction. I would like to incorporate aerospace, technology, and engineering into my lesson. To do this I need computers in my classroom. By increasing the technology used in my classroom, I can engage all of my students and expand their curiosity in the world while building a love of learning.

My Project

In this era of technological innovation, it is no wonder that my students are excited when they can use technology to explore how math and the real-world connect.

The problem is that some of my students do not have the means to view technology at home.

I want to excite my students by sharing the connection but can't because we don't have enough computers in my school for every student to use them.

If I had enough computer in my classroom I could expose my students to the wide variety of exciting jobs related to math and spark their desire to learn more.
