Mrs. Crews from Fort White FL is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hands On, Minds On!

Help me give my students a hands-on learning experience to reinforce foundational skills in algebra and geometry. The algebra tiles and coordinate grids will allow my students to physically explore these concepts.

My Students

My students are hard-working young men and women from an economically-challenged rural community. They have a great deal of potential ready to be unlocked and sometimes struggle to make connections between their math studies and the world they live in each day.

I am proud of my students' accomplishments this school year and I look forward to working with them again in the fall.

I know they will make great strides and as we continue working together to improve their understanding and future success in mathematics.

My Project

As I reflect on this school year and begin preparing for the next, I realize that my students could greatly benefit from a more hands-on approach to mathematics. They worked hard this year and most of them will return to my classroom in the fall for their next math course. I want to start the year off with a hands-on review of foundational concepts in working with polynomials using algebra tiles, graphing with coordinate grids and pegs, and measuring and calculating area and volume with 2D and 3D shapes.

I believe all students can learn math when given the right tools and support.

Having the opportunity to physically manipulate the concepts we are learning (and those with which they are struggling), will help my students gain a stronger foundation on which to build their future mathematics studies. I look forward to bringing these resources into my math lessons and helping my students gain a deeper understanding of how math models and relates to the real world.
