Help Us Grow Our Middle School Math Team

My students need additional Classroom Jeopardy remotes and Scoreboards to be able to expand school math teams.

My Students

Teacher: "Great News Class! We will have a jeopardy system to run a math competition in our school." Students: "Can I join? Can I join too? Me too! And me!"

My eighth grade students attend a public school and are very engaged and eager to learn.

They are a wonderful, diverse group of children. In the eighth grade alone, about 10 different countries are represented. Our school is located in a highly populated urban area.

My Project

We plan to use the Classroom Jeopardy system created by Educational Insights in a variety of ways, but we are in need of additional remotes and scoreboards. The system will be used as a fun way to review educational concepts in mathematics, literacy, science and social studies. Also, we are planning on having our first ever middle school math competition and this system would be extremely helpful in keeping the competition organized, as well as creating a culture of excitement and fun around education. This project would allow for a larger population of students to participate.

This project will impact many student lives.

It would allow MORE students from all middle grade levels to participate in an exciting, memorable, educational mathematics competition every year. Th is is a great way to incorporate technology and create excitement around mathematics.
