Dry Erase Markers for Math

My students need dry erase markers and erasers.

My Students

Learning math is not about crunching numbers at your desk. Math is most fun when students can come to the board to show their work.

We are a high school in the poorest district in the United States.

My students work hard for what they have. Many are preparing for college. But we don't have the resources to truly excel. They are an extraordinary group of learners. I want to capture mathematics in color.

My Project

I want to teach mathematics in a vibrant and meaningful manner. With colored dry erase markers and erasers, I can bring the mathematics instruction to life on the white boards. Students will also put their work on the board and explain to the class. They will teach each other. The colored markers will help them "see" the meaning behind the numbers.

Imagine teaching a lesson without markers.

The white board would be an empty slate. My students need to have the mathematics drawn on the board for them. They also need to express their learning by writing their work on the white board. The only way to do this is with dry erase markers.
