My Students

H. High School students use the concepts they learn in the math classrooms every day. Our students are involved in FFA and DECA where they have lots of opportunities to apply mathematics. Our students are involved in STEM and Engineering courses designing projects from cooling systems to fish habitats. Our students are involved in JROTC courses where they apply math to aerospace concepts.

As a lifelong math-learner and as a math teacher, I have long appreciated the value of these varied hands-on experiences with math concepts.

If I can help students to visualize STEM concepts through drawings, diagrams and models they will grasp and remember concepts much more readily.

Students in my school come from a variety of backgrounds, both experiential and economic, with the number coming from low-income households growing steadily. Getting the right tools into their hands so that they can use them in mathematics is becoming harder.

My Project

Students learn the best when you can make the concepts real for them. Geometry students need to understand how the vocabulary and figures relate to the world around them.

Learning the traditional compass and straight-edge Greek constructions is an engaging way to help students make connections between the geometry concepts in their text and objects in the world all around them.

For years we asked students in our school to supply their own drawing tools (compass, protractor and ruler.) This is becoming harder and harder for many families in our community. I would like to be able to provide every student with good equipment to facilitate learning these important STEM concepts.
