Ms. Lam from Chicago IL is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students what they need to build working Ferris wheels!
Our school focuses on developing student agency, identity, and belonging to deepen students' connections to our global society. We strive to prepare students who leave school ready to become contributing members of our democracy.
My students are curious thinkers who are eager to make connections between what they learn in the classroom and what they see in the world beyond our walls.
I teach high school juniors in an advanced algebra course who, over the course of this year, have grown from isolated thinkers to a community of learners. The majority of my students have jobs after school and are eager to find their place in the working world. I look forward to witnessing how my students will utilize the problem solving skills they have learned in my math class to accomplish amazing feats the future.
Mathematical modeling is at the core of so much of high school mathematics, but modeling projects are frequently difficult to implement due to restrictions in funding.
This project give 250 high school juniors the opportunity to imagine themselves as engineers, mathematicians, and scientists by introducing students to engineering principals, engaging them in hands-on tasks, and using real life applications to motivate the need for mathematics.
The items I have chosen will allow students to work in groups to construct Ferris wheels. We will use these Ferris wheels to understand the graphs of trigonometry functions as well as create mathematical representations of the Ferris wheels. Moreover, the materials in this project will enable students to customize their models to different sizes, which will in turn allow students to notice how differences in their physical models are reflected in their mathematical equations.
