Math Boring? Not With The Computer!

My students need a subscribtion to StarrMatica to help improve their mathematics comprehension.

My Students

How many times did you sit in your math class and think to yourself, "I have no idea what the teacher is saying. I didn't understand it last year and I don't understand now. I wish I had a way to understand and be able to do my homework."

I teach 7th grade pre-algebra, intensive pre-algebra, and algebra.

For many of my students it is difficult to complete their homework because they are having difficulties understanding the lesson while at school. My students attend a middle school, grades 6-8, that does a good job at providing opportunities for all students to succeed. It is very important for all middle school students to gain a firm grasp of mathematical concepts before they enter high school.

My Project

It is important to have different resources available for students that are having difficulties with math. StarrMatica will allow my students to engage in interactive lessons that visually show mathematical concepts and practice those concepts. Having StarrMatica digital courseware as a resource in my classroom will give my students and I many different possibilities for classroom activities. It will allow me to work with smaller groups and more closely monitor the progress of my students while another group uses computers to practice the skills they have recently learned. The big bonus is students love using the computers to learn and stay actively engaged the entire time!

Knowing basic mathematical concepts is absolutely necessary to be a productive member of society!

StarrMatica, a digital courseware, will give my students and I another resource to use in our classroom to teach essential mathematical concepts, which is an absolute must!
