How iPad and a Drawing App Beautified My Life as a Math Teacher?

Before I begin, this is not a product review, and I genuinely intend for the information herein to be of service to others for the benefit of humanity.

Technology is pretty integrated into my daily life. As such, I try to benefit from its use in the classrooms that I teach. However, my technology adoption does not mean that I have entirely abandoned traditional teaching methods. At the very least, my goal here is to effectively integrate traditional methods of instruction with technology in the ideal manner possible. I might say that this is genuinely my foremost goal in life. As a math teacher, I find myself increasingly contemplating more and more on how to utilize technology more effectively. Being able to reach a solution requires me to be an outstanding assessor.

Mathematics isn’t merely composed of numbers, as many people assume, and it is quite a visual discipline, as well. For example, while Algebra II only features charts and graphs, Calculus harbors many complex and highly-detailed diagrams. Geometry, as you know, is made up of patterns and figures. That is why when I brainstorm things related to math, I take notes on a piece of paper to visualize my thoughts.
