Miss K's Mathletes

My students need some manipulatives and easel paper for hands-on remediation of skills and advancement of mastered concepts.

My Students

Every student deserves to have a "lightbulb" moment, especially in math. However, some students will only get that through hands-on activities.

My students are 8th graders from diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds in an urban school district in Tennessee.

Like most 8th graders, they want to be the leaders of the school, but are still learning that greater responsibility comes with that role. While they are often "too cool" to admit it, they still want to learn and do their best.

My Project

My 8th graders are part of a very visual and hands-on generation, but because of the recent success of our school, resources have been taken away and given to failing schools. These math manipulatives and chart paper will help the students work out their answers, and learn how to show proof that an answer is correct. These tools will be useful for many topics throughout the school year and for years to come!

When students can take hold of their learning in different ways, it is more likely to stick with them beyond a quiz or test.

I believe these tools will be the key to unlock understanding for some students who struggle understand major concepts in math. Understanding is also the key for these students to persevere rather than give up on themselves. While they won't be able to take the manipulatives with them to high school, the mental pictures and deeper understanding will remain.
