I am a sixth grade math and science teacher in Antioch California. My school is in a very low income part of town where the majority students receive a free or reduced lunch, speak English as a second language, or have special needs. I have taught at this school for three years now, and although opportunities to teach in newer schools with more supplies and technological updates have come up, I choose to stay here each year because it is where I feel I can be most useful as an innovative educator! We recently gained the use of a program called "Boxer Math" which utilizes the computer and over head to teach and improve math skills. Although it is fun and useful to some of the students, some still need more hands on experiences. It is hard to make math concepts entertaining so I am hoping to get a collection of math games to show my class that math can be fun! If math is seen as a series of puzzles or games to be solved, I think that my kids won't be as intimidated by it and actually start enjoying math!
