Help Us Calculate Our Exponential Future!

My Students

I teach seventh and eighth grade math students in the common core curriculum.

As part of a Title One school, many of our students are from very low-income or poverty households.

They are faced with several challenges in and out of the classroom and do not have access to a computer or the internet at home.

Our school is the only public junior high school in our community. It is a great gathering place for students from all different elementary schools, and different backgrounds. This year has been difficult for our community, as we were in the middle of the Thomas Fire. Several of our students lost their homes, and we were out of school for over 2 weeks, as it was unsafe to return because of the fires. Luckily, our school was not damaged.

Despite the challenges, our community, school and students have really pulled together to support each other. I want to provide them the tools they need to be successful now and in the future.

My Project

Students in my classes learn to represent real world problems mathematically. They are problem solving by drawing graphs, making tables, finding equations, and discussing solutions with their classmates. They explore linear relationships, the Pythagorean theorem, square and cube roots, inverse variations and exponential functions.

We need help calculating all that growth!

Math isn't all done in our heads any more, and frankly, attempting it that way slows us down! Students are using calculators on a daily basis in my class. We are currently working on exponential functions, and we need calculators that can keep up! It would be ideal to have a class set of calculators, so students have the tools they need to complete our lessons.
