Online Teaching

I had the opportunity to watch my colleague as she taught a math class online. Her students are from across Quebec. The classes are small enough that she has a personal relationship with each student. She teaches (often flipped), mentors and encourages, passing on her love of math. I think I would have enjoyed math much more with a teacher like her, but also with the tools that are available now to play with mathematical concepts: geogebra, gizmos, even spreadsheets.

  1. Thank you so much, Susan! It was nice to have company today in my "classroom". You're right about the tools, they make it more fun for everyone, teacher included!
