My Students

The students in my classes are full of energy, wonder, and enthusiasm. They come from various cultures, speak different languages, and many of their families are struggling economically. They attend a culturally diverse school where 70% of the students receive a free or reduced-price lunch in the state of Washington.

Aside from the cultural and economic differences in our student population, you'll find that our amazing students are eager to learn and are trying to build successful lives that will be happy and productive.

My Project

Sharing this brightly colored and photo filled magazine during the school day is a unique approach to math. It incentivizes problem solving by offering a high-interest fact for getting the correct answer on practice problems. Whether calculating the cost of cell phone plans or figuring out the speeds of the world's fastest cars, students will be excited to find out the surprising results of their calculations. Over 50 practice problems in each issue inspire teens to apply core math concepts and develop key skills. A career series focuses on the unexpected math skills needed to do a variety of high-interest jobs. A STEM poster connects math to science and technology and introduces students to exciting careers in engineering.

10 issues per year are filled with articles and practice problems that show the variety of ways math is used in everyday life and links math with cross-curricular tie-ins, such as science and technology, current events, social studies, economics, and more.

This could really open their eyes and minds to the possibilities that could be theirs if they persevere in their math education throughout high school.
