Girls Can Do Math!!!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Girls CAN excel at math -- with a little help from you and me!! You help provide the resources, and I'll help create a math curriculum that is fun and engaging! Resulting in increased math proficiency for 25 lovely, lady scholars!

I teach a single gender (all girls) 5th grade class in South Los Angeles.

Each day, we strive to prove that GIRLS RULE!! Get the math joke ;-) We have a lot of ground to cover, and a lot of time and resources are spent looking for ways to make the math curriculum come to life. As a teacher, I spend a lot of my own money doing this, your help would mean a lot!

My Project

With your support: --> I will use the math quiz show software to integrate technology into the math curriculum. We will use the SmartBoard to help make math time fun, and I will install the program on our classroom computers to facilitate differentiated instruction during math. --> With the Real World Math Problem-Solving Kit, we will continue to make connections between abstract math concepts and the real world. --> The math literature will help facilitate project-based math lessons.

STEMS education is increasingly becoming important, if we are educating a globally competitive workforce.

Neither girls, nor students of color living in urban areas should be left out of this equation!
