We are Family!

Help me give my students and their families activities (PowerMyLearning Family Engagement Innovators Program ) that will foster math learning and meaningful conversations.

My Students

Math is the only universal language, but sadly, many students (as well as adults) are apprehensive toward it. I hear all too often "I am just not good at math", to which I answer "Yet!". I teach 8th grade math and Math 1 in a small town in North Carolina. My students come from a variety of different backgrounds and areas within our county. My students have varied ability levels in math, but, they are all hard workers, hilarious and have giving hearts.

My goal is for all students to see that math can be fun, and that they can do it!

My Project

There is a stigma about math. Many people say it is hard and only certain people can do it. I want to break that stereotype! Anyone can do math. It may take some practice, and a positive attitude, but everyone is capable of learning how to be successful at math.

This resource will help foster conversations between the student and their families about what they learned in math and how awesome math is!

In my 8th grade class we learn topics such as Pythagorean Theorem and System of Equations. How great would it be if students were able to help their families decide which cell phone company is the best for their family, or which plumber would be the best person for the type of job their family has a need for? By using this program, students will learn how to communicate these concepts to their families and apply their learning to the real world.
