The Equalizer Mathematics Summer Camp

My students need supplies for our first summer math camp. We need a folder for each student with graph paper, writing utensils, a protractor for each student, highlighters and post-it notes along with hands-on activities.

My Students

We are at the most northern end of our school district and are the most rural area of our county. The majority of the students we serve are from low-income families and many do not see college as an option. Our middle school has started an Honors Mathematics track two years ago that allows our middle school students to take Algebra 1 and Geometry and earn two high school credits in mathematics before they start high school. This allows those students to get into a dual enrollment program with the local community college. Our students have the opportunity to earn an associates degree at no costs by the time they finish high school.

This summer we are hosting a math camp, to get our incoming students ready for Algebra and Geometry and help fill in the missing gaps in mathematics they may be coming to us with.

This will be a first for our school, many of the other higher income schools in our district have been doing this. We want our students to have the same advantage and be successful in mathematics.

My Project

We will use these materials to make a difference for our lower-income students and boost their math abilities. The math manipulatives like the dry erase number lines, positive-negative dice, protractors, volume kit, and Pre-Algebra bingo will provide hands-on learning opportunities for our students to have a concrete understanding of integers, fractions, and basic geometry. Manipulatives have been proven to help middle school students gain mathematical conceptual knowledge. One way we will use dry erase number lines and positive-negative dice is by having students roll the dice and complete the operations of addition and subtraction of integers by writing on the number line and using the marker to show the direction and number of times moved.

Kennedy Space Center is right across the river and our students need to know a career like that is an option, boosting their mathematics skills will help them get there.

Our summer math camp will serve as an equalizer.
