I teach 9th grade Math at Cobble Hill School of American Studies in Brooklyn, NY. Everyday, I encourage students to get out of their chairs and come to the board and demonstrate their learning by solving problems on the board. Some problems are short and some are long; Sometimes there are only a few and sometimes there are a lot. The students are also asked to explain their reasoning in front of the class by walking the other students through each problem. Along with getting students to solve math problems, this also teaches the skill of public speaking. They become comfortable with standing in front of a group of people and explaining their solution. This is a tremendous skill to have, one that is used in many different careers. The students love to talk and this method allows students to teach each other. In our classroom, we have one 4'x 8' chalkboard. With over 25 students in each of my classes, it is increasingly hard to have more than two students working at the board at the same time. Too frequently, a problem has to be erased before another can be displayed. Unfortunately, seeing two or more problems side by side can be very helpful for students. The second problem that exists is too much chalkdust in the air. Since I have students at the board displaying problems from both classwork and homework there is a lot of writing on the board in a math class. Last year, two students of mine, on separate occasions, had to leave the room due to asthma attacks brought on by chalkdust in the air. To alleviate this problem I am requesting two 4'x 8' dry erase boards so that we can stop using chalk. Increased board space along with dust free air will improve the learning environment and make it safer and more conducive to learning.
