Hot Dots for Math

My students need Hot Dots Math Quiz cards and Talking Pens for a quick engaging and self-checking activity.

My Students

Could you imagine having to do boring paper-pencil activities all day every day? Well, my students look forward to having hands-on activities to keep them engaged. Hot Dots will help us practice, practice, practice so not a second is wasted. It's fun, interactive, and gives immediate feedback!

My students are 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders who come to my class for Title I Math Intervention.

These 54 students continuously strive hard to work on-average with their peers in other regular-ed math classes. Most of my students have below average scores on previous standardized tests, and need extra attention to achieve their goals. Some students are served in other resource classes because of learning disabilities. We are in a Title I Elementary school with 60% free and reduced lunch. Many students are from military families, so they can't afford any gaps in learning.

My Project

My students constantly need feedback and want feedback to know that they are on the right track. Hot Dots is fun, interactive, and attractive to the student who has low motivation in math. Hot Dots uses technology that gives immediate feedback to let a student know if his answers are correct, and it covers a wide range of math skills including Numbers and Operations, Geometry, Algebra, etc. Knowing that Hot Dots is an option could be just the incentive my students need to keep pushing hard to master basic math skills. My students need Hot Dots Math Quiz cards and Talking Pens for a quick engaging and self-checking activity.

Your donation will help my students have a more positive outlook on math.

Because I teach students who struggle, they often feel like giving up. I want them to look forward to math. Hot Dots is a hands-on activity that will give them that extra push to keep working hard.
