Engaging Math to Celebrate Student Brilliance
School: Shelby Junior High School
I believe that by celebrating student brilliance, I can create both excitement around math and the conditions for every student to be successful. The Desmos 6-A1 Curriculum will help me foster engagement and provide challenges, which in turn will lead to student success in my math classrooms every day. The dynamic abilities of a math curriculum on the internet will help students build flexible mathematical understanding through discovery empowering them to be the mathematicians and problem solvers of the future. Students can be bold and take risks under a blanket of anonymity to justify and explain their thinking, working towards clear mathematical understanding and concise vocabulary usage.
