iMath! Using iPads for Interactive Math Learning!

My students need an iPad and case for research and interactive math activities in class.

My Students

Do you remember when all you had as resources were encyclopedias, book catalogs, and textbooks? Now we can access resources for mathematics and other STEM concepts during math class by touching a screen! All the resources in an iPad!

My students are very kind and studious, but they come from a variety of backgrounds.

There are some students from the local homeless shelter all the way to upper class families. The majority of my students are middle and low class families who understand the value of working hard and appreciate opportunities to use more advanced technology like the iPad.

My Project

The iPad will allow my students to investigate real life math topics as we cover them in class and allow them to play interactive math games during work time. In my class we work on real life math! We plan community pools to learn about volume and surface area. In the same project we also learn about solving equations and working backwards to determine how big our pool should be. They need the iPad to research construction standards for pools and how many people are in the community they are planning for. We also measure handicap ramps to study functions. We need the iPad to research building codes for national and state standards to investigate if our school ramps are up to code. When a student needs extra practice there are games that can help a student brush up on their skills while holding the student's interest. For example, to help with converting between fraction, decimals, and percents; and then ordering them (a VA SOL) there is an app called Number Line that they can play.

The funding of this project will make a difference to my students because they will get the opportunity to do research quickly (for the real life part of their math problem) and can return to the main math problem.

They will also be able to practice and get remediation through apps that I will select and recommend for them. They will feel privileged and special that there is an iPad just for their use as a student, especially if they do not have access to that type of technology at home.
