Students will problem solve, plan, and create math tools for a 3rd grade math classroom using a 3D Printer. They will use cell phone aps to video and document the process. A final short video produced will serve as a testament to the journey that the high school students encounter as they design objects for the elementary students using a 3D Printer.

The Math Instructor will facilitate Operation and Maker-Space Assignments on:
 How to make objects using the 3D Printer
 Mathematics standard- Reason abstractly and quantitatively
 Mathematics standard- Attend to precision
 Mathematics standard- Use appropriate tools strategically
 How to plan and monitor a project effectively
 How to use a Visual Journal/Color-coded Math Notes
 Reflections and mini-math essays with supporting data
 Popular Math Manipulatives
 Scoring Rubrics, Student Evaluations, and Critiques
 Careers in Mathematics and Technology
 Growth Mindset as a Learning Strategy
 

 

Benefits to my students

Nationally student engagement declines dramatically from Elementary School to High School. By giving students a voice and opportunity to address a real world problem working with advanced technology, the connection can be made of why it is important to learn math in the classroom and what wonderful things can be done through learning those math skills.
Our student-voiced project addressing a real world issue will motivate both the students working on it, and inspire others who view the final video to consider a STEM career as an option.

Scholars such as John Dewey and William Heard Kilpatrick argued that learning by doing would result in more powerful learning.
Performance-based assessments and critiques allow for Teachers to ensure that we're not catering to just one type of learner and projects allow for variation and student voice in HOW the project will meet the goals as outlined above. 

 

Describe the Students

Disston Academy provides an alternative high school setting for students who excel in a smaller school with individualized pacing and additional support. More than 75% of our students qualify for free/reduced lunch and half of our school is ESE Extended Transition Programs (USF StingRay, Project Search/All Children's Hospital, PTC, etc...).
Disston offers additional tutoring and test preparation through the Extended Learning Program to support Biology and STEM-CTE certification process. This 3D Printer Project will assist us with marketing STEM opportunities. According to U.S. manufacturers, 40% of all 17-year olds do not have the math skills and 60% lack the reading skills to hold down a production job at a manufacturing company.
