Projecting Awesome Math

My students need a tablet and printer for clear instruction presented in an engaging way and handouts to be printed to follow along.

My Students

I project from a tablet all day every day. Without a properly functioning tablet to project from, my class goes slower and I am not able to fully use class time effectively. My students need extra help and scaffolding so I write a lot of worksheets to make sure my students are fully supported.

Many students struggle with math and dread going to class.

I can use this tablet to send out student forms as a formative assessment, copy my OneNote files and put them on my site for students to study later and for parents to use to help their children. I work at a school where education is very important. The students put a lot of pressure on themselves to do well and be successful. They benefit from and appreciate clear instruction greatly and thrive from the use of technology in the classroom. Students need extra support and scaffolding and I never fully rely on the textbook for extra examples. I write my own worksheets and need a printer to print them on!

My Project

l will use this requested tablet every day as an instructional tool that I know my students will appreciate. They will have a clearer, more positive learning experience and will make learning math clearer and more fun. I can use this tablet to send out student forms as a formative assessment, copy my OneNote files and put them on my site for students to study later and for parents to use to help their children. I project my lessons during the class period using the tablet and students can take notes and follow along by looking at the clear notes I can type up on the tablet. I can use this for every lesson for every level of math. I write my own worksheets regularly and can print copies for my students to use as extra support. I create supplemental materials in case the textbook is not enough and I can use the printer to make class sets so that the students can get the extra practice they need to understand the material.

I am requesting a tablet to be able to project from my tablet onto the screen.

I am also requesting a laser printer to be able to print worksheets to better help students who need extra support and practice. Being able to clearly give direct instruction and allow students to use technology as a tool in a mathematics classroom builds students positive disposition towards math and develops their conceptual understanding of the material.
