Ms. Frank from Philadelphia PA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Mathematicians Need Tools To Share Ideas

My students need a document camera and batteries for graphing calculators.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I am striving for my students to become independent thinkers and strong problem solvers. One challenge in achieving this is that I lack the technology students can use to explore new concepts and share their ideas with each other.

My 8th grade students are incredibly hard-working students from all over the city of Philadelphia.

My school serves students from around the city, many of whom come from low-income families. My school provides our middle school students with a safe and bright learning environment. My focus this year is to better prepare students to participate in the 21st century world, and make sure they are prepared to be successful high school students.

My Project

The batteries will allow students to use the graphing calculators that I have at my disposal. Students will be able to develop knowledge of how to use the technology, and they will also be able to better make connections between different mathematical representations. The document camera will allow students to display their work to their peers. I envision students using the camera to explain their work to their peers and having students share multiple methods for solving the same problems.

I want my classroom to become student-centered, and I want my students to take responsibility for their own learning.

I believe they will gain confidence in their math skills when they are able to experience the mathematics through new technology and have the opportunity to become the expert by sharing their ideas and learning from each other.
