I need math professional texts to improve our math classes!
"I certainly do care about measuring educational results. But what is an 'educational result?' The twinkling eyes of my students, together with their heartfelt and beautifully expressed mathematical arguments are all the results I need." - Keith Devlin.
My classroom is located in Washington State at a Title I school.
Students at my school are hardworking, kind, eager individuals. Many students are first and second generation citizens from Africa, South America, and Asia. Our differing cultures, backgrounds, economic statuses, and languages provide richness in the classroom. However, we still face challenges. One challenge is that we are incredibly underfunded. There are so many learning experiences that I wish we could have with our students if we only had the means.
A math teacher is someone who inspires their students to become problem solvers and critical thinkers. Every year many of my 60 students and the 675 others at my school are struggling to learn math. This can be attributed to us, the teachers, rather than the students. Math is my passion, and as a lead math teacher at my school, I would love to spearhead professional development to help myself and other teachers grow in their practice.
With your help, I could get the professional development books into my school that would be so critical to helping myself and other teachers become better.
Students deserve qualified and educated teachers.
If we have better teachers, we will see our students scores rise, but even more importantly their understanding of math increase. The books I'm asking for include No More Math Fact Frenzy, Clothesline Math: The Master Number Sense Maker, Make Math Fun for K-12 Students with Hands-On Activities to Teach Number Sense, Solving for Why: Understanding, Assessing, and Teaching Students Who Struggle with Math and other great titles. Please help make better teachers so that students get a better and more engaging education.
