Get Math?

My students need interactive math supplies such as computer games, color cubes, and giant geometric shapes.

My Students

Worksheet verses hands-on activities...seems like a no brainer when it comes to practicing our math skills. Having the opportunity to make the math concrete is far more interesting when you get to be a part of the math instead of doing numerous problems on a sheet of paper.

I teach a lively bunch of explorers!

My kids want to move and get involved with their learning. They don't want to sit behind a desk plugging away at a math problem. They want to touch, see and interact with the math. They can save the desk work for when they become adults!

My Project

My students need interactive math supplies such as computer games, color cubes, and giant geometric shapes. Imagine being asked to count the sides, faces, and verticies of a three dimensional shape when it is on a piece of two dimensional paper. Not very exciting is it? How about not being very practical for a child who is learning the difference between two and three dimensional shapes. The giant three dimensional shapes will help my kids see and feel the difference between the types of shapes. Additionally, the interactive math games will make math come alive and become practical to their mathematical needs.

We all learn better when we get to become a part of the action.

Using these interactive materials will get my kids excited and motivated to learn their math skills to become proficient mathematicians!
