Virtually every student qualifies for free lunch, and many live in single-parent households. Some students live in rough neighborhoods where signs of bullying are a daily occurrence. School is a safe haven, but sometimes bullying does occur.
Mathalicious is a website with a variety of Common Core lessons that engage students by making real-world connections to the mathematics we learn in the classroom. The lessons are interactive, utilize technology, and fun. They compel students to think critically through the math and apply basic math skills to real-world scenarios. By providing them with access to these lessons, their appreciation for mathematics will surely grow, as well as their engagement in the classroom. I am also requesting an assortment of Common Core exemplar texts in math and some self-checking problem solving cards for students that finish early and need to stay engaged.
It is so important to engage our students in mathematics and to show the practicality of it with how it is used in everyday life.
