Efficient Algebra: Help Us All See!

My students need a document camera to start the new school year.

My Students

On the first day of school I tell my students that algebra is one of the most important classes they will take; it is the foundation for later classes and contains useful skills for their future careers. They know we all must work hard towards the goal of college graduation. We want you to join us!

I teach ninth grade algebra in an under resourced, urban school district.

Our students commute to school using public transportation and, with their families, commit to a longer school day and school year. The goal for each and every student is college graduation. Many will be the first in their family to graduate high school, and even more will be the first to earn a college diploma. Achieving this goal will take hard work; our incoming freshmen traditionally enter the school three years below grade level in math. However, a challenge is always surmountable and college graduation is surely attainable. Success in algebra is one of the first steps.

My Project

A document camera will allow my students to master graphing, improve their problem solving skills, and share their work with others. The document camera I am requesting will combine with our multimedia projector to allow us to project worksheets onto the wall, so that everyone can see the same document. Together we can enhance student experience in learning how to mark up a percent word problem, organize the solution to a system of equations, and tackle standardized test questions. This tool not only saves paper, it greatly benefits visual learners and ensures that every student is actively engaged in the lesson.

Now I am asking for your help.

Together we can ensure that my students have a strong algebra foundation. Further, we can set them confidently along their path to college graduation.
