Project Description

The Math Achievement To Realize Individual eXcellence (MATRIX) grant program is designed to increase student achievement in mathematics in grades six through eight by providing classroom teachers on-going professional development and in-class support that focuses on integrating technology into the curriculum and instruction. Two seventh grade and two sixth grade teachers are participating in the grant, as well as other critical partners, such as the Principal and Technology Facilitator at MLK, Director of Technology, Teacher Specialist for Technology Integration, the Mercer County ETTC, and the local non-public schools. The Mercer County ETTC will provide a technology integration mentor to provide math and technology training in the classroom and after school. The projects include making a hotlist of websites for student access; creating teacher webpages to showcase student work and to act as a portal for students; and various multimedia projects, such as instructional units and word problem quizzes. We will also host summer and after hours trainings for students and parents.
