Learning by Doing in Mathematics

My students need graph paper ruled composition books to assist in their learning and application of mathematics!

My Students

My students work incredibly hard both in school and at home. Most of my students have part time (some full time) jobs after school to help bring in extra income to support their families.

Many of my students have just enough money for food and clothing so spending money on school supplies has to come second.

Nearly all of my students fall below the poverty line, yet they still make it to school every day so they will be able to have a better future. Each student in my class will go the extra mile, and you can help to contribute to their success.

My Project

These graph ruled composition books will be an essential tool as the students are introduced to functions, graphing, and data acquisition. By having the graph paper, the students will be able to not only plot more accurate data points, but be able to produce higher quality drawings during geometry.

The students will be using the graph paper to accurately sketch functions, interpret graphs, and analyze data from observations or activities they perform.

Each student will receive their own composition book for them to bring to class every day. They will utilize these books on a daily basis in class as well as at home as a resource for homework. These books will keep all their notes and handouts in one organized place so they will know exactly where to look to answer a questions.
