Graphs That Last

My students need large grid paper so they can graph equations (linear, quadratic, cubic, trigonometric, logarithmic, etc.) and post them in the room for all to see!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Many students struggle with graphing equations. They need to see many examples and the examples need to be large and detailed. With limited chalkboard space it is difficult to leave more than just a few examples up. And those examples can be hard to see.

Many of my students are from low-income families and many will be the first in their family to attend a four-year college if they attend one.

Our school, like so many in California, has little money to provide adequate teaching supplies. We do the best we can, but our students need and deserve more.

My Project

Mathematics is a subject that often holds students back from attending a four-year college after graduating from high school. In order to be admitted to a public four-year college in California students must have successfully completed through Algebra 2. Many students at our school struggle to even make it through Algebra 1. One of the biggest stumbling blocks is graphing.

Seeing many graphing examples that are large and colorful, and being able to refer to them long after the problems are done helps students better grasp the concepts involved.

Large, sticky, grid paper allows me to do many graphing examples during a lesson and leave them all up around the room. The graphs are large and easy to see. Students also love to post their own graphs for all to see. If we can master graphing, we can master Algebra. If we can master Algebra, we can make it to college!
