My Students

Math is no longer about numbers. Math is alive and all around us. Math is not about doing problems and solving equations. Math is visual. Math is expression. I am looking for different ways for my students to express their learning of Mathematics.

My students are a wonderful group of learners.

They live in the poorest congressional district in the country. They do not have much in terms of resources, but yet, they are hardworking and resourceful. Many will be the first in their entire families to go to college.

My Project

I want to give my students the opportunity to express their learning Mathematics in their own particular learning style. I want them to step out of the box and show me how Math is relative to their lives. I want to capture these moments through a scanner . I want to be able to view and reflect on their learning. A scanner will allow me to save my students' precious work. I can then project student work on the white board for them to review. I can show them their mistakes and how to correct them. A scanner will give me a vehicle to present math in a different manner.

I want my students to explore Mathematics in their own way.

I want them to show me Math. Math is not about numbers on a piece of paper. Math is alive and all around us. I want to be able to capture their learning by scanning and saving their work.
