Show Me the Math! Part 2

My students need 2 digital cameras and 20 SD cards so we can create animations, and quickly swap out the SD cards so the next group may use the camera.

My Students

Do you remember when you got that math textbook at the beginning of the year and had the horrible realization that not only did the text get smaller, but the problems got larger? I want to help my students learn why they are doing these problems and how it will apply to their lives, and make it fun.

My students are awesome!

They are funny, smart and determined. Our school is located in an urban setting, where many families are low income. 85% of our students receive free and reduced-price lunch, and 50% are English language learners. Our test scores are low because so many students struggle with reading and math. Many of their parents are unable to help them at home, so every minute counts when they are in the classroom.

My Project

Our students struggle with math because they are unable to read the directions, concepts or word problems in their assignments. The classroom teachers are working diligently on their reading skills, and I want to help by focusing on another area. I want to use animation to accomplish three goals: to teach the students about the art of animation and video production as an art standard, to help the students understand why they are learning specific math skills and how it may help them in their future with their careers and schooling, and to have them become the teacher by producing an animation that teaches a specific math concept to their peers. In order to create stop animation videos, students will need a camera to share with a partner, and they will need to take stills of their project to animate each sequence. I am requesting 2 cameras and 20 SD cards so that we can quickly pass the cameras around.

I know that students learn well through project-based learning.

We are working hard to help these kids get the knowledge they need, and I want to do my part in helping their academics with an artful mind.
