My Students

Students from my school lead fairly sheltered lives. They live in a town of 300-400 people, or in the countryside surrounding the town. Unfortunately, they don't get to experience many things that children from larger communities could easily experience on a daily basis. Our students tend to be harder workers than most children their age, which I can't express how much I appreciate that. Most of them grew up or work on a farm/ranch so they understand how work ethic plays into their daily lives.

As their math teacher, I'm working hard to get them exposure to things they might not get at home or around the community.

A majority of my students have responded well to this because I can tell they appreciate the effort I put into making them more well-rounded individuals.

My Project

Since my students are from a very, very small rural community, I'm trying to get them exposure to things they may not encounter in their lives. I brought my rubik's cubes to class last year and several students showed interest in them and many have asked me to show them how to solve the cube.

I thought that "Cube" Club would be a great thing to start here.

I want to give students time to learn how the Rubik's Cube works and how to solve several different cubes. Through the steps of solving the Rubik's Cube, my students will learn several important skills that are useful in math.

They learn how to look for patterns. They learn how to complete a series of steps based off what state something is in (great for solving equations). They learn how to repeat a process until they have mastered it (great for building work ethic and producing quality work). They learn how to be curious with something that seems so complex.
