My Students

My math students are a diverse group of 6th graders living in Cleveland. Many students do not have the means to buy basic school supplies.

Despite not having the latest technology to learn basic math facts, my students come to school eager to learn and excited to be in math class.

We discover new ways to model math and discuss how math is relevant to their world. They love hands-on, engaging and challenging projects. They enjoy working together to solve problems. In our math class students are challenged to find multiple ways to solve math problems.

By working with their peers, students learn different ways to solve problems. These students take great pride in displaying their work.

My Project

The carpets with provide defined areas for students to work with their groups on sixth grade math concepts without being disturbed by other groups. The cubes and various flexible seats will allow students to get out of their traditional desks. Students that feel comfortable and relaxed can focus longer on group projects. Many students get distracted when working closely together. By using the carpets in the corners of the classroom, this will allow students to spread out and separate from other distractions. The cubes and flex bundle will allow students a variety of flexible seating options. These cozy and comfortable seating areas will allow students to be productive, explore various math concepts, and create unique math projects.
