Help my students communicate their math knowledge with their teacher and others through dry-erase whiteboards. I teach high school math in a school with moderate poverty but increasing free and reduced lunch numbers.
My students are often discouraged to go to the board to do math problems because of the fears and anxieties of what their peer's think.
With individual dry-erase boards, every student will be engaged in practice problems and all students can experience the great feeling of displaying that knowledge for all to see. After all, students tend to retain knowledge at a 90% efficiency if they can teach it to and share it with their classmates.
Your help will ensure that my students will have many opportunities to hone their speaking skills in conjunction with learning math skills necessary to be successful members in a global community.
