Hands-On Geometry

My students need a LCD projector for Geometer's Sketchpad to give them the opportunity to actively explore mathematics and create/present projects.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach 10th grade Geometry to high-need students. Traditional approaches to math is simply not enough to help students understand the concepts of Geometry.

I barely have enough protractors to go around, so limited supplies make it difficult for me to plan creative, hands-on lessons. My students tell me they have struggled with Math since they were introduced to it, so many of them come to me with a defeatist attitude. I try my hardest to get them involved and to help them realize that Geometry is all around us and that it can be very different from the number crunching and equations they have encountered thus far. I also want them to use the projector and software to present to the class, a life-skill that will help them through college and beyond.

I want to incorporate Geometer's Sketchpad and other software in my lessons so students can see the dynamic geometric world around them. Using my own labtop and software, I need a LCD projector so my classes of 20 students each can see and experience Geometry in a new and exciting way. It will also encourage students to experiment with the tools they have and help them realize in-depth the relationships we study.

Please help my student squash their math phobias and see that we are surrounded by the very concepts we study!
