My Students

Think back to your high school years, to the subjects you loved and the classes you dreaded. Hands down, if I were to ask which class was your least favorite, most people would say math. It's not because of the teacher. It's not because of the people in your class. It's the subject. It's challenging. It's difficult and you just don't want to do it. Now, how would you feel if you found out that it could be made so much easier? My students know how this feels.

My students range from 9th to 12th-grade Algebra I and Algebra II students.

My math classroom is a place for students to master Algebra I and Algebra II so they can then move on to more difficult math topics and complete the math required to graduate. Some students even going on to take classes such as Pre-Calculus and Calculus.

My Project

The TI-84 ce graphing calculators will be used every day in our math classes and will be the beginning of a class set. Introducing graphing calculators in the ninth grade will allow students to more easily understand the material because time is not being spent on drawing graphs. Instead, that time can be used on understanding the graphs and what they mean. By 11th and 12th grade, students would be proficient with the calculators and class time would not need to be spent on how to use the technology. During these crucial years, the focus can be on learning mathematics.

These calculators would significantly help my students progress quickly through the math problems we complete in class and allow them to learn more content.

Students could more easily understand the content, thus building confidence in their mathematical abilities.
