Reinforcing Financial Literacy With Chromebooks!

My Students

My students are a mixture of 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th-grade students at a rural school in a complete Title I district. The school recently merged with another school because the district struggles financially and was unable to keep both schools opened.

Students in my classroom enjoy collaborating with peers on various math concepts, connecting math to their everyday life, and working hard to meet their goals.

These type lessons keep the students engaged, however, the supplies that are required are costly. Students are motivated by technology, extracurricular activities, and unique learning opportunities.

My Project

My students need Chromebooks to enhance their math skills and problem-solving skills. With the chromebooks, my students will be able to remediate and practice skills that they are struggling with. They will also be able to apply math concepts to the real world by research, financial data collection, and creating presentations to share their knowledge with the class.

We live in a digital world; therefore, it is vital that today's students have access to technology in the classroom to prepare them for life outside the classroom.

Math skills and financial literacy go hand in hand!

Students are more engaged in learning through technology. With these Chromebooks, students can be engaged in learning math and financial literacy through virtual lessons, videos, and collaboration with their peers.
