Future Mathematicians in the Making

Help me give my students a subscription to IXL learning. This extra practice keeps them sharp throughout the year.

My Students

My students are participating in a special program within our school. Our Title I school serves about 900 students. We also house many special programs. One of the special programs we offer is for gifted learners. This program has around 300 students in grades six through eight, and I teach about 155 of them. I have the unique opportunity to teach advanced math to 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade students. I strongly believe good math skills will open up doors for my students to do anything they want in the future.

My students enjoy learning and look forward to being exposed to new material.

They are inquisitive, hardworking, and are always looking for new challenges. My students also love to play fun and interesting games in their free time and like to give back to the community. All of my kids have enjoyed the extras I can give them because of donors like you. They are always amazed at how lucky they are to have such wonderful items that enhance their learning. They have been excited about all of the community service projects and kindness acts we have done throughout the year. These types of acts help build empathy.

My Project

My kids have used IXL for years, but it is time to get our license renewed. We have about 300 diverse kids in our special program that need gifted services. This program is used for practicing math skills up to Calculus and our kids use it all year. Our current subscription runs out on July 1. Usually, it is available for them to use in the summer, but we won’t be able to offer that unless our project is funded on time. We definitely want to at least give our kids the opportunity to use it next year. Our kids use this program to practice new skills, brush up on old skills, and some use it to learn things we won’t even get to in math class this year. We have a lot of motivated learners who will practice on their own time even though it isn’t mandatory. Our 300 kids answered 157,812 questions just this school year.

A little bit of practice a day will help make our kids future mathematicians, engineers, scientists, doctors, and anything else they strive to be.

We love to see our diverse population open many doors for their futures. We also stress the need to be kind and caring people and to always give back when they can.
