Exploration into Mathematics

My students need 2 math centers, Puzzle Fun Math Cards and Show Your Answer! Math Challenge, that will help them focus on a variety of skills that will allow them to have fun learning and becoming successful at their own level.

My Students

My students are longing for hands-on activities to do during Math Workshop that will allow them to work at their own level. Making math exciting during centers is challenging due to lack of resources in our school. My students want to have fun while learning, but need the tools to do so effectively.

My students are from the neighborhood that surrounds the school.

Our school houses four different types of schools in one. I want my students to have the same opportunities as those around us. They look at school as their safe place, and they are eager and ready to learn and understand the world around them.

My Project

Hands-on learning is a wonderful way to explore mathematics! Obtaining the, Show Your Answer Math Challenge, kit will allow my students to use manipulatives and lapboards to solve their problem. This will also allow me to quickly evaluate each student's understanding. This will be beneficial when students are in small group or with a tutor as the materials will be together and organized by a specific skill. Exploring mathematics through the Puzzle Fun Math Cards is another great opportunity for my students to enjoy learning as they build their essential math skills. My students will be able to complete tasks that target specific skills at their level of understanding. This will be used effectively while students are dong centers independently.

Acquiring these hands-on math tools will allow my students to grow as learners.

My students will have the opportunity to learn and understand math concepts as they explore and build on each specific skill.
