Ms. Hajduk from Chicago IL is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Take a Closer Look at Algebra!

Help me give my students a closer look at Algebra with a document camera. We have 2 separate areas of the math classroom, breaking up students into stations so we can give them the instruction they need.

My Students

My students come to school every day excited to learn. I have worked at a few middle schools before, and I have never taught at a school with students as passionate about their education at this school, I enjoy being here every day.

They like to move, explain their thinking, compete with one another, and work cooperatively.

We celebrate their learning as a class, and celebrate every student in the room as a valued member of our community.

Our school is a caring school community. Every student knows that their opinion is valued and that school is a safe place. It is such a safe place, students do not have locks on their lockers and we do not have issues with stealing.

My Project

Having a document camera would allow students to explain their thinking on the difficult mathematics problems they do and would allow other students to see as we work through examples together. It would allow us to quickly compare different approaches to a problem without having to wait for someone to try and copy everything they wrote down on paper at their desk onto a whiteboard. They can use it to showcase their work, share ideas, and most importantly, see their work on the projector. That builds confidence in their mathematics abilities. This tool will allow students to engage in a new technology.
