My Students

Every day we start off with a challenging problem. This problem helps to engage my students in what we are doing and where we are going with the unit. The beauty of this is that there are so many different ways to solve these problems.

The students in my classroom are lively and eager to learn.

They find great joy and pride in being able to discover the answers to their questions on their own and discovering the beauty of mathematics. My students take pride in their work and their education. Even though they are so eager to learn, my kids are generally not able to experience the best because of living in a high poverty area and my students deserve the best in every aspect of life, especially in their education!

My Project

This hands-on graphing project has students measuring, collecting data, plotting points to make scatter plots, analyzing correlation, interpolating, extrapolating, finding slope and building line of fit equations as they grow and care for their cups of grass. The students will have an ownership over their learning with their grass and all of the math that goes with it!

Without knowing it, the students will naturally learn key topics of Algebra in the process.

With the grass, students will see linear interpolation, line of fit to predict and interpolate a missing data point (from a weekend). It also hints at the extrapolation the students will be doing in the future! The folders will be used to keep their data in and the flipchart paper and markers will be used to keep key points available and ask guiding questions.
