Help me give my students a Microsoft Surface Pro for my math classroom.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I believe that each student brings something special to the classroom. With many different kinds of students/learners, this makes the job challenging but also exciting. These students work hard to obtain success in their math class. I encourage my students to try their best and communicate their challenges with me so I can help them.
I love trying to find new ways to help the students succeed in math class and learn.
There are many struggles and successes in any math class and my classes are no different. I love learning and I tell them that in hopes they will love learning with me in my class.
I make math class fun. We get up and move around using stations, groups, partners, and interactive notebooks too! In my class, the students are assessed in many different ways. I know the students would be grateful for any donation that would make our classroom even better which in turn helps them to be more successful.
Technology in the classroom is the up and coming way to provide new and exciting instructional lessons in the classroom. The internet is a great source for allowing kids to visualize and manipulate mathematical concepts like shape transformation and visual proofs. The project will allow the notes to be more interactive with the use of websites like Desmos and Geogebra.
I want to bring more visualizations to my math classroom with the help of a touchscreen tablet and the internet for notes on new concepts.
I can picture notes being taken and quickly referring to an animated picture of what an angle bisector does or how the Pythagorean Theorem works for all right triangles. I will be able to present videos to introduce new material in a fun way. I can lead the class in a discussion with the help of Desmos and the activities that the site provides.
The touchscreen will allow me to write directly on the webpage. I will efficiently be able to switch from my notes using One Note to Math Open Reference website to show how the Triangle Inequality Theorem works.
This will also allow my students the chance to quickly be a part of the notes by completing examples on a wireless device around the classroom while it projects to the entire class. I want to take my notes beyond the surface of a piece of paper and into the world of math provided by internet resources.
