School and Contact Information Description Type of Collaboration
Svea Anderson

Agua Caliente Elementary School

Tanque Verde Unified School District
Grade level: 4th
Subject area: STEM (Science Math Technology and Engineering)

Proposed activities: Currently in my classroom I have Science Fridays where STEM curriculum is emphasized every Friday. The fellow(s) would collaborate with me on various projects including plant surveys, insect diversity counts, mathematical practices, gardening projects, etc., and/or whatever the fellow is researching in the lab or their department. Science Fridays are hands-on, inquiry and project based.

Tatiana Kolesikova

Basis Tucson North

BasisTucson
Grade level: 10-12
Subject area: Diferential Equations. Vector Calculus

Proposed activities: At our school we alternate in our Mathematics Capstone between Differential Equations and Vector Calculus. In Mathematics Capstone class students study upper level mathematics topics and after every chapter they work in groups on projects that will enrich and extend the covered material. They have to write a paper with their results and solutions, and also present the results to their peers. The G-TEAMS student would be in charge of this process - from preparing possible new projects as addition to the ones we have currently ready, work with students on solving them.

Grade level: 10-12
Subject area: Mathematics club

Proposed activities: Last year our students started Math club at our school. They wanted to prepare for various math competitions like AMC 10 and AMC 12. We do not have a set structure for the club yet, but one option would be that the G-TEAMS student would prepare problems in certain area, let the students to work on them for a week and then lead a discussion during the meeting.

Amphitheater
Grade level: 6th grade
Subject area: Regular and Accelerated mathematics

Proposed activities: Fellows would be expected to come in and provide enriching activities and/or lessons to the accelerated students. The activities could consist of a wide variety of hands on activities or demonstrations that tie into the fellow's research or other areas of interest.

Sarah Fata

Academy of Tucson Elementary

Academy of Tucson
Grade level: 4th
Subject area: Math

Proposed activities: I am interested in having a fellow in my classroom for a half or full day once or twice per month to teach a fun math lesson on the topics we are currently studying. We use the Saxon textbook, and each chapter has an investigation project at the beginning to introduce new topics. I envision a fellow having the freedom to apply his/her interests to the investigation and leading the students in an activity to get them excited about real-world applications of the mathematics that they are learning. I hope to work with the same fellow every month to build a rapport with the students, but I am also in support of having a rotating group of fellows that could work together to present a lesson, if that is desired. I have found that the students have responded very well to the GK-12 program this year, and I hope to continue providing new students with this experience for years to come.
