Mathematical Mind Collaboration: Let Me Show You My Idea

My students need these magnetic white boards to collaborate and share ideas in small groups and with the entire class.

My Students

I teach math to a diverse population of students who are eager to learn. The activities I use in my classroom encourage students to think, collaborate and expand their knowledge. They have fun doing the math.

Some of my students face challenges and need alternative methods to facilitate and demonstrate their learning and to gain confidence in thier use of mathematical vocabulary.

Student populations are always changing (over 40% F&RL) and through my 19 years of teaching I continue to find ways to adjust my practices to help them grow and achieve.

My Project

An important aspect of a student’s learning involves the ability to collaborate and communicate ideas with others. This classroom tool allows students to experiment with ideas and build vocabulary by working with and discussing these ideas with other students.

These magnetic markerboards will allow students to share and experiment with ideas while collaborating with a small group of students.

This resource allows students to practice different concepts (graphing, solving equations, transformations, Pythagorean theorem…to name a few) without the fear of making a mistake because work can be easily erased. The generous size of these boards will allow multiple 8th graders to show their thinking in one place.

These magnetic markerboards have grid lines for students to show their graphing ideas, and the ability to use different color markers allows other students to add their ideas for comaparison. The magnetic ability of this board will be used for students to experiment with transformations on a coordinate grid. This board is large enough for students to share their group's ideas with the rest of the class.

These boards will be used extensively by six 8th grade math classes, two Algebra classes and two math intervention classes.
