May's Story

May Voltz, a 5th grade Math teacher in Texas, was teaching her students financial literacy and how to graph the amount of allowance they had left over the course of a week:

"I love the ability to see what all my students are thinking by drawing their understanding of graphing...describing what happens to their allowance! Go Formative allowed me to see such misconceptions...what goes on the x or y axis...and how to depict an exchange of money or a purchase! This tool allowed me to immediately adjust my questioning!"
