Mr. P. from Miami Beach FL is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Interactive, Small Group Math For Middle Schoolers.

My students need a touchscreen laptop that small groups can use together to access online math resources.

My Students

I teach math at a middle school in southern Florida. All of my students are in the seventh grade. I teach 5 classes. In each class, there are approximately 20 students. The children's English language proficiency varies a lot. Many are immigrants from Latin America. These students tend to have a solid background in math. They do not, understandably, respond well to lecturing. They do respond well to visual presentations and to hands-on activities. These are my first ever public school students. I am a rookie teacher. So far, everything is going great. The students are a pleasure.

My Project

A lot of classwork is done in small groups. I go from table to table, re-explaining assignments (particularly to the non-native speakers), helping and encouraging the children. Much of the math curriculum is online. If I take a group to the smartboard to go over a point from the lesson, this distracts the attention of the other groups and is time-consuming. I want to be able to go from group to group, carrying a laptop. It would need to function with WiFi, to have a large (-ish) screen and, ideally, to have a touchscreen that would facilitate student interaction. The laptop that I have selected for this project meets these criteria, and would be a valuable help to the children as they try to master proportions, mixed fractions, algebra and geometry.
