Project Sports In Math!

My students need mathematics centers and sports equipment, including jump ropes, cones and a variety of balls for my classroom to begin the school year.

My Students

Students struggle every day in mathematics class. My hope is that creating a fun, hands-on environment will help students get excited about math and succeed as well!

I am working with fourth and fifth grade students.

The students are very active and could use some resources that help them use some of their energy. The school I work for is a Title I school, which means many of my students live in low income homes. My goal is to facilitate a fun and enjoyable learning experience for each and every student.

My Project

My students are VERY active; they love to move. My goal is to bring SPORTS into MATH Class. Students enjoy being outside, so why not bring math outside the four walls of the classroom? I am requesting some sporting equipment to facilitate a sport themed math class. We will be playing basketball and learning about probability, we will play soccer and learn about problem solving, we will play football and learn about measurement! Let's bring sports into math class and bring math class to the real world!

My project is important because it will make a difference in many students lives.

You can help make mathematics fun for over 100 students! I can't stress enough how much my students would appreciate your help getting the materials necessary to make math class fun by bringing sports into it. Thank you again for your help!
