Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

Typically, you can find my students engaged in project-based learning related to the math and science concepts they are learning. John Dewey said, "Give the pupils something to do, not something to learn; and if the doing is of such a nature as to demand thinking, learning naturally results." They are active learners who get excited about being involved in activities and projects that allow them to design, create, and build things.

Benjamin Franklin once said, "Involve me and I will learn." My students like to volunteer to lead group reviews, work in small groups, and serve as peer coaches to classmates who might need additional assistance.

Our school is an urban, public middle school located in Ohio. The majority of the students have been in the district since kindergarten. Ninety-nine​ percent of the students are classified as economically disadvantaged. The student body is 83% African American, 8% Hispanic, 4% white, 3% Asian and 2% multi-racial. Nineteen percent are students with disabilities.

My Project

These Sphero Bolts will encourage and inspire my students to see the usefulness of math. Often times economically disadvantaged students don't get to experience math through project-based​ learning that is fun and useful.

Students will use the Sphero's to learn geometry, speed, time, distance, mean, median, and mode along with percentages and coding.

Sphero lessons give students a fun crash course in coding while sharpening their skills in math and science. These experiments foster creative problem-solving and teamwork.

Students concept, engineer and build contraptions powered by Sphero and the programs they write as a group

Sphero's will change how they view mathematics and instill a growth mindset. The idea that they can learn anything as they engage in hands-on learning.
