We are a Title I school, and our students have the most school pride I’ve ever seen. I love that they help to build each other up, no matter who is in each classroom. I have so many students who work hard to master each standard, even though math may not be their favorite subject. I have two classes of special education students, one honors class, and one regular education class. I have to teach four classes this year, instead of three we normally teach on block schedule, because we were not able to find certified teachers to fill two positions.
I would love to have tables for these students because we have so many levels in each class.
Tables would allow us to be able to reach students faster, do cooperative learning activities, and Kagan activities.
My students will be able to work collaboratively to complete more projects to help them master the difficult standards they must learn in today's math with these tables.
Math is hard!
The tables will give more opportunities to make it fun! I have always seen math as a puzzle, with more than one way to solve a problem. Investigating with hands-on projects will help my students to solve these puzzles and keep working on getting better in math.
I want students to be excited to come to math class. Many students get to high school already hating math. If we can make fun projects that disguise learning, my students may fall in love with math again.
