Let's Talk about Math, Baby!

Help me give my students some really great hands-on manipulatives that they can use to help them become successful in math!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our elementary is a Title I school, servicing approximately 740 students located in Georgia. Of the served population, 92% have been classified as economically disadvantaged with a high single parent home make up.

The community that houses our school is also economically challenged with a high crime rate and major gang presence.

The crime rate is indicative of the environment that yields approximately 201 crimes per square mile. This increases the likelihood that the target population that we intend to serve will be impacted inevitably at some point and are likely to seek protection by gang affiliations for their perceived safety.

My Project

My students are very visual and hands-on. They enjoy learning about math and math concepts when they can touch, manipulate, and move items around. I know that they will benefit from the use of these math manipulatives. Students no longer have to be stuck with boring worksheets, they can have fun and not even realize they are learning, growing, and bettering their skills. At the same time, I can get enjoyment out of watching my students enjoy math. Please help my students and me to reach our goal and have some fun but also educational materials that will go a long way.
