Laptop for Student Engagement!
My students need access to a laptop to help them engage in the curriculum.
Help my students access 21st century materials! My students are questioning the relevance of our curricula, and I want to help them get more hands-on opportunities to see the importance of Algebra.
My students attend a college preparatory school that encourages and supports the development of productive, accepting and creative individuals.
We look to help students develop a sense of worth in order to function successfully as individuals and in group interactions. In spite of the challenges that face them in an urban environment, my students are driven to reaching their goals.
In order for them to see the relevance of Algebra and to access the less tangible concepts of the curriculum, I want a laptop to use more resources from the web to help them make sense. For example, I want to use this laptop for more project-based learning and real world applications of the topics we'll study in Algebra I. In one unit, I want to use the laptop to have students research the average incomes of people with various degrees to study systems of equations. In another project, I want students to use it to learn how to use a spreadsheet to calculate percent change of their own assessment scores. My students never cease to amaze me with the tenacity and grit in the face of obstacles, and I expect this resource to only make them better mathematicians. Whether they practice sample problems, remediate skills that are lacking, or utilize a manipulative to learn its properties, my students will thrive with more access to technology.
