My Students

My students are incredibly driven young men and women who have real goals for themselves and their lives. They never cease to amaze me and definitely keep me on my toes. They are inquisitive, passionate, and creative. The students attending Konocti Education Center are here because they want something more from their education. Our small school has two unique paths; A medical pathway that allows students to job shadow in a variety of medical careers, and a middle college pathway that give students the chance to earn college credit and work towards their AA while in high school.

My students, while driven, come from one of the poorest counties in CA and have experienced devastating wildfires year after year, including most recently the Mendicino Complex Fire.

My students recognize that math is vital to their success, but that doesn't change the fact that like many highschoolers, my students sometimes have negative feelings towards math and struggle with the material.

My Project

We will be focusing on linear equations for the third unit of Algebra 1. From past experience, I know that linear equations can seem tedious and are at times hard to conceptualize. When it comes to graphing, students would rather use graphing utilities rather than graph by hand, but having a strong ability for graphing points and lines will greatly benefit these students in future classes.

This project will let my student's creativity shine through while allowing them to practice writing and graphing linear equations.

The student will be given a series of situations they must write and graph equations of lines for. For example, "A line slope-intercept form with a slope of 2/3." Students will create different lines for the same prompt making their graph as unique as them. Once they have written all their equations and graphed all their lines on the coordinate plane they will get the chance to turn their math into a work of art.

We did this project last year and it was such a hit that I want to make it even better! Last year students used plastic screen protectors and sharpies to make their stained glass, but they didn't last as long as we would have liked. That's why I want real frames, paint, and glue so my students can not only turn their work into a beautiful creation​ but a product that will stand the test of time.
