While starting school remotely, my students and I have had many success and struggles. Learning math remotely has been an unexpected challenge. The use of whiteboards is normally a daily activity when it comes to math. Along with whiteboards, students have opportunities to solve problems by writing them out and watching the steps I take in teaching. Now that we are remote, it has been a great challenge to teach math to my students without the use of pen and paper in front of them. In math, you need freedom to create a space to make mistakes and an environment to learn and grow. I tried creating PowerPoint presentations to teach our math lessons, but there is only so much you can do with just a text box. With the help of a device like an iPad and an Apple pencil, I would be able to demonstrate practice equations, solve real world problems, and assist in creating graphical displays, all while presenting to my students at the same time. I could take the PDF pages of their math workbooks, present on our Google Meet and solve each problem while they follow along in their workbook. I want to give my students the opportunity to thrive in their learning, even while we are online. I believe that this is one way I can achieve that.
