Solid science education is the best inoculation against ignorance.
Project: Funds for Fractions:You Too Can Eliminate Fraction Anxiety
|We try to focus on the main project until it is completely funded, and then move on to the bonus project. If a project doesn't meet its funding goal by its deadline, it dies and any donations to it are referred to their donors to be moved to another project. For that reason, we don't like to split our sometimes limited resources between two open projects. Of course the choice of project to which you donate (if any!) is entirely yours.|
When the main project is finished, let's work on this one.
Project: New American ELLs Need Fluency in Basic Math Facts
When bonus project #1 is finished, let's work on these.
Project: Super Sorting Students
Last week's main project, Loopy for Physics, was completed. Indiana high school physics students will use loop tracks to learn about centripedal force. (Their teacher, Mr. Boggs, has gone to the trouble of joining Daily Kos to go into last week's diary and thank us. Too late to rec his comment, but if you see him around, say hi.)
We had a bonus project bonanza last week, with bonus #2 being a collection of projects each needing a fairly small amount. We completed the following:
A Hop in the Right Direction...with a Frog Dissection!: South Carolina middle school students will get frogs to dissect and equipment for dissecting them.
Scientific Inquiry Labs: a Kentucky enrichment program for gifted students will receive materials for three science lab projects.
Using Technology to Make Slope Personal: high school students in rural South Carolina will be able to track their movements with a calculator-based ranger system.
Organic Community Garden: a Texas grade school will have gardening tools to start a community organic garden.
You can see the teachers' thank-you notes at the links above. Many thanks to all contributors!
See our list of successfully funded projects. We're up to 256!
When projects are not fully funded by their expiration date, donors are contacted by DonorsChoose and asked to choose another project to which to redirect their donations.
We are in no way affiliated with DonorsChoose.org, or any of the classroom projects presented for funding.
