Project Goal

Our goal is to provide the tools needed to raise our underachieving students in mathematics to the next level or higher.  

 

How Project Benefits Students

7th and 8th grade students in Intensive math will benefit from using technology that will run the variety of programs used to aid students who are in need of additional support in mathematics. These programs, such as Imagine Math, Dimension U, and Prodigy, to name a few, offer hands on differentiated support for the many different levels these students are working at. Many of these students are also non-English speaking or English is a second language for them and having the ability to utilize these programs is helpful in breaking through that language barrier by offering audio/visual support in other languages.
In addition, being able to use the calculators they will use for testing will allow them to learn, practice and master, hands on and in turn gain confidence.
 

 

Expected Outcome(s)

By having the technology available to all students to run the programs used in Intensive math will help in mastering standards. Having more computers capable of running all programs will allow students to gain access on a regular basis which will enhance the expected mathematical growth and skill mastery. Having access to the TI-30Xa calculator all the time will remove one testing obstacle since many of these students, both 7th and 8th grade, are unfamiliar with them. The greatest outcome from having these tools will be confidence. So many of these students lack or have lost confidence in their ability and some have even shut down. I know with the proper tools these students can meet and even exceed our standard goals.
