My Students

My Students are from South Central Los Angeles where their daily life is just breaking the cycle of previous generations within their families. With this in mind, each of my students are a symbolic representation of "Roses in the Concrete" that I am trying to cultivate. My students are continuously looking to improve self as they navigate the world around them.

Within my class students participate in rigorous mathematics as they learn to persevere, collaborate, and critique while solving math problems.

While doing this I build a community within my classroom that promotes not only self improvement but also communal uplifting.

My Project

Mathematics is a subject that combines conceptual and procedural understanding through the means of visualization. But one of the issues that many teachers face is being stuck at the front of the classroom. With the surface pro in addition to projection technology at my disposal I am freed from the prison that is the front of my room.

With the Surface pro, I will be given the free range of controlling my presentation while easily addressing all of my student needs as I move freely throughout the room.

In addition, Since the Surface Pro is a tablet I will be able to take problems directly from the curriculum or assignment annotating the problems as students work through them. This will allow me to emphasis key aspects/concept through out the lesson by highlighting, color coating, and displaying multiple representations. Furthermore, the surface tablet can be used to take pictures of student work then performing error analysis or display exemplar student samples.
