School: Detroit Achievement Academy
I am hoping to start a mathletics program in my middle school math classroom. The grant would go to fund an official buzzer system to build investment and maintain integrity when initiating this program. Inner city Detroit math data is consistently some of the lowest in the country and I think a big reason impacting the steady numbers is not incorporating competition and regular "extracurricular" activity that focuses on mathematics. Building this program would be groundbreaking for our region and impact more than just those in my classroom!
