My Students

My students walk into my classroom every day wondering what new topic will be "experienced" and excited to see how I will present the new concepts. Will we be using M&Ms as part of the lesson? Will we go outside in the hallway and do a scavenger hunt? What kind of new entry will be made into our interactive notebooks? How will launching rubber bands down the hallway connect to statistics?

Our school is a Title I school in a major metropolitan area with a wonderful balance of diversity in ethnicity, economic levels, and cultural backgrounds.

School is a safe haven where high expectations rule and where students value the educational process.

My Project

Students should be empowered to share their learning and thought processes with their peers. The ability to project solved problems to generate discussion and debate is integral to moving kids from basic understanding of concepts to a higher level of application. A document camera connected to a projector will allow students to easily demonstrate their solutions and present their strategies to their classmates.

Students will be able to develop confidence in their mathematical skills and collaborate with each other to evaluate efficient action plans to solve rigorous problems.

Students who can explain a concept to others will have a much better understanding of the topic which is the ultimate goal in the learning process!

Besides highlighting student work, the "Random Walker" will be used to show the amazing connection between the binomial model and the normal distribution. In under 5 seconds, the students will be able to actually see an upper level statistical concept in action and reflect on the beauty of mathematical modeling!
