My students are inquisitive, dedicated, and diverse. They work hard and use problem-solving strategies to find solutions to challenging math problems. They push themselves and strive to learn new things each day. Their effort makes me feel dedicated to helping each and every one of them find success.
Many students in my classroom do not have the means for essential classroom supplies.
Our school is located in an urban setting and our population is ethnically and economically diverse.
Our district implements a variety of learning strategies and techniques, including student-centered learning. Group collaboration and differentiation ensure that all of my students' needs are met. I am fortunate to work with a group of students who are passionate and keep a positive attitude at all times.
All of my students want to analyze complex graphs and perform rigorous calculations. We currently only have enough classroom calculators to accommodate half the students. Additional calculators will provide every student with the opportunity to enhance their Algebra 2 skills and to build their confidence with using this valuable educational tool. These calculators will not only be helpful in my Academic and Accelerated Algebra 2 classes, but also with our Mathletes team members, who participate in extra-curricular mathematics competitions. In addition, these calculators will help all of our students become more comfortable with using a graphing calculator so they are better prepared for the SATs.
The TI-84 Plus graphing calculators will promote student engagement, encourage student-centered learning, and improve critical-thinking skills.
I would love to give all students the ability to deepen their understanding of mathematics. This tool can help them learn in a new way.
