Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

My students are wonderful and eager to learn math! My class is composed of inspiring young adults with all the characteristics and qualities for greatness. They give their best effort each day and strive to meet their academic and personal goals. They inspire me every day to be a better mathematics teacher. They are aspiring to join engineering, building and construction courses that requires geometry knowledge. Developing practical construction will enable them meet the goal.

My students are young adults with keen interests and personalities and are an amazingly unique, eclectic bunch, teaming with untapped potential and talent.Knowledge is power.

The power that drives them to greater things. They truly are our future and that future looks bright.

My Project

Geometry is best learned through doing and with the availability of these material will enable them achieve their goal, it will help my student have the practical skill in construction and make conclusion of the proofs they are expected to learn. I have over 60% of my students who would like to join the field of building and construction and engineering which requires a lot of Geometry knowledge which they will be taking this coming semester.

These construction instruments will ensure that my students are more absorbed in their work and less disruptive of their peers during the geometry class hence self-confidence development when they are able to make conclusions from their own work.
