Projecting into Math Success and College Readiness

My students need one LCD projector to investigate, discover, and explore the powerful world of mathematics.

My students deserve the very BEST. I teach 9th-12th grade students in Algebra 1, a class required to graduate from high school, and AP Calculus, essential to college acceptance. Both are difficult courses for students to master, especially when my students have been under-served since the start of their schooling. My students come from low-income homes, many with only one or no parents. They are born with little social capital and are often underestimated by our society. My students work hard - given the chance, I know they will make a POSITIVE DIFFERENCE in our world.

With only an old computer in my classroom, it is often difficult to expose my students to technology. My Algebra students become so ENGAGED when they see animations like those from Algebra in Motion or BrainPOP; however this exposure is rare because these resources are not available to us. A projector is necessary for students to share their written work with the class using document projector we recently obtained from DonorsChoose.

To really engage my students, and exposed them to the necessary technology to prepare them for college, I am in need of an LCD projector. The projector will allow me to show HUNDREDS of Algebra in Motion animations, access a MULTITUDE of Internet resources like BrainPOP and the many online tools available, along with utilize CREATIVE PowerPoint presentations. Additionally, we will be able to use our document projector which will help my students to develop public speaking skills and become comfortable expressing ideas as they share their work with the class. These skills are ESSENTIAL to success in a college classroom. Access and familiarity with technology is so important to our students and their futures in college, and extremely valuable in the classroom.

Your financial support will make a HUGE difference in the educational experiences of my students. This is an opportunity to EMPOWER under-privileged young people and CREATE powerful learning experiences for them. Our classroom will become a more accessible, creative space that truly FACILITATES their learning. Instead of leaving these low-income youth behind - YOU will be providing them with the learning tools to become critical thinkers in this rapidly changing society.
