Ms. Garcia from Pittsburg CA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help us make Pythagoreas Proud!

My students need some basic geometry tools like protractors, compasses and rulers so they can study geometric relationships themselves.

My Students

Geometry is a hands-on experience. Students enjoy exploring mathematics. Being able to see, touch and understand some of the underlying principles of geometry is what makes it interesting and enjoyable.

My students are inquisitive, collaborative and full of energy.

These high schoolers have the world in front of them ready and waiting for them to fill it with their ideas. Currently they are struggling with visualizing problems and these tools will help us make our ideas more concrete. These students are also very spirited and they are thirsty for knowledge. I just hope you can help me quench their thirst.

My Project

Much like engineers and architects, we will be using our construction tools to create a vision for the future world we want to see. In this first part of the year we will be performing simple constructions and we will work our way up to larger and more complex constructions as the year goes on. Students will learn how to use these tools by doing lots of practice throughout the year.

These students need to know that the greater community at large is invested in their future.

I want them to know that I believe in them and other people believe in them too. By it's very nature, Geometry is a hands-on experience with logical reasoning that can help my students visualize mathematics in the world around them. We need these basic tools of Geometry in order to make sense of the world around us.
