Powerful Portfolio Presentations in Math

My students need 22 binders in order to organize their math and engineering projects into a portfolio.

Project-based learning empowers students to take control of their own learning. I use a variety of hands-on projects to teach tenth and eleventh graders Geometry, Algebra II, and Engineering in an inner-city public high school in Maryland.

I am committed to helping my students overcome the obstacles of low graduation and low achievement rates, to become mathematically literate citizens of an increasingly technology-driven world. Unfortunately, our school has little money for classroom materials. And our students, many of whom receive free lunches, sometimes also cannot afford the basic school supplies.

My students would greatly benefit from binders with which to organize portfolios. They can keep all major assignments and projects in one place and use the binders to study from during the year. Then, at the end of the course, they can organize these materials (together with reflections upon their learning) into a portfolio presentation that showcases their intellectual growth in math and engineering.

Please consider donating to this project. Your help will ensure that my students will have the school supplies needed to create a powerful portfolio presentation of their math and engineering skills.
