Tablets Center for Math Apps

My students need two iPad minis with keyboards in order to create a math center. They also need stylus, headphones, and audio splitters, so they can share the materials.

My Students

Did you love math class in middle school? If you had been given technology that allowed you to progress at your own rate and apply what you learned to real world situations, would you have loved math in middle school? My students love using technology to learn about their world.

My students come from homes that have low income according to the over 80% free and reduced lunch applications.

Many of them have used their parents touchscreen, smart phones, but they do not have technology of their own to use in class. We have a bring your own device network system in our district. The numbers of middle school students who are able to utilize this feature is very few. I don't have a single student who has an iPad or iPhone that they can use for math class. I would like to offer them two of the latest iPad minis for use a center.

My Project

I am asking for two iPad minis along with the keyboard peripherals. I also need some headsets and headphone splitters, so that four students can share the two iPads in a center. I also would like a class set of stylus to help keep the iPads in good condition on those days when we have to pass the iPads for each student to have a chance to follow the directions that I am giving whole class. I have an iPad to show the students large screen with the projector, but students learn best when they have a device in their hands to follow along with me. I believe the keyboard feature will be extremely useful on those lessons when we actually "flip" the classroom. They will be able to access tutorial videos and utilize collaborative software such as Edmondo. I also would like to do more with Zondle for practice activities and Educreations for them to create and view videos.

My students need the chance to gain skills that will open the world up for them.

Math can explain almost every aspect of life and society. Where are our future scientist and mathematicians going to come from if we don't invest in our students. We have to show children that math is not only fun, but is applicable to every solution to problems of the future. Thank you for your support.
