Being a math teacher, it is important to show my students how to solve math problems, step by step. My students are part of the gifted and talented program, and are eager to learn math. They are part of the school's leadership team and they have high GPAs.
My math students are trying their best to be successful, and complete their online tasks.
They take their education very serious and they apply themselves to go above and beyond what I ask of them. However, my students are struggling trying to understand the problems, and I am having difficulty being able to fully support them in their distance learning without real-time step-by-step instructions.
Being a math teachers, it is important that I explain how to solve the problems in a way that my students understand. This distance learning has taking away my ability to use my projector and document camera to display examples and to chart my students input on solving problems multiple ways.
A document camera would give me the ability to better support my students with disabilities by allowing them to see step-by-step instruction in real-time.
It would also allow my students to be more interactive on Zoom by displaying the problem and having different students explain how they solved the problems, while displaying it to others.
