Mathspiration

My students need iPad minis, a case, and 3 shelf storage unit to create a technology inspired learning center.

My Students

Technology has come a long way and it can help my students come a long way too!

We have the lucky opportunity to teach in a day and age where technology can help students learn in countless ways.

Many of my students struggle with Mathematics concepts. They want to learn but sometimes give up when things get to hard. I have found that approaching the materials in different ways to reinforce can help them master skills.

My Project

My students will use the iPads in my class on a consistent basis to reinforce mathematics skills. By providing two iPads to my students that stay in my classroom they will have the opportunity to use them as early finishers, group work, and reinforcement on struggling activities. The case will help protect the iPad. We were very fortunate to receive a lot of funding last year and now we need a place to store all of the math games we received. The 2-shelf storage unit will house many of the games previously purchased.

My students lives will be changed for the better because they will be provided with iPads that will help build their confidence in Mathematics.

Mathematical skills are a skill set that you need to get through life. Once my students master these skills it is my hope that they will feel more confident through their continued schooling.
