What's The Probability That 8th Grade Math Is Easy This Year?

My students need a calculator pocket chart, a probability kit, and algebra materials to be more successful at learning math this year.

My Students

Seeing is believing. "I don't understand what you're saying. How? Why?" I'd love to tell my students, "Let me show you what it looks like using these manipulatives." Mathematics does not come easy to many students. Manipulatives make it easier for the students to visualize mathematical concepts.

My eighth grade students attend a public school and are very engaged and eager to learn.

They are a wonderful, diverse group of children. In the eighth grade alone, about 10 different countries are represented. Our school is located in a highly populated urban area.

My Project

The items in this request will help my students become better organized, as well as improve their skills in the areas of probability and graphing equations. The graphing wipe boards would be used throughout the school year as many concepts within the eighth grade math curriculum are taught using graphs. Some examples are linear and non-linear equations and coordinate geometry. The probability kit provides a great visual aid for students and would also allow them to find experimental probabilities as well.

I want to maximize the impact that I have on my students' learning before they move on to their high school years.

Donors can be just as impactful by providing the students with materials and supplies they need to succeed in eighth grade math and beyond.
