Ms. Weiss from Charlotte NC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

The Only Way to Learn Math Is to Do Math!

Help me give my students an opportunity to experience around the world news with a strong focus on math. DynaMath is a magazine that incorporates relative and meaningful articles, that assist in math problem solving and critical thinking.

My Students

My students have all grown up in the local community. As a district, we struggle with equity. Giving my students a balanced and global mathematical perspective is what I strive for.

My students deserve to have many of the opportunities that are not afforded to them, as students may have in other schools.

I hope my students strive to reach goals and be successful in all content areas in order to be college or career ready in the future.

My students are so eager to learn, and I want them to receive opportunities in math that they have not had in the past.

My Project

Dynamath is a monthly magazine that is complete with literacy and math coupled together to help students learn about relative and global events happening in our world now.

My students will have the opportunity to use these magazines to understand mathematical news around them, to help them critically think about solving problems, and to engage their curiosity as they will be able to discuss and relay these events to their families at home.

Each month students will complete a Dynamath log and choose one event that sparks an interest in them. They will compose important information from that article and take it home to share with their families. They will be required to write down three questions that their family had and then answer them in the next reading of their chosen article.
