Interactive Tools for Virtual Teaching
I hope that your semester is winding down well and you are planning for a restful time during your much deserved winter break. I’m pleased to announce that our next MichMATYC Webinar will be on January 29, 2021 from 2:00-3:00 pm Eastern on the topic Interactive Tools for Virtual Teaching. As we start another semester of teaching remotely, how can we replicate meaningful learning experiences from our face-to-face classrooms for students learning in an online environment? Join us for this webinar to learn fun, interactive tools that you can use in your classes next semester!
We are excited that Tuyetdong Phan-Yamada from California State University, Los Angeles will be joining us to share her experiences of teaching remotely with fun, interactive tools for the mathematics virtual classrooms.

In a face-to-face classroom, instructors show an example and then ask students to do a similar problem. Instructors would go around to check if students do it correctly. These interactive tools can help instructors do the same in their virtual classrooms. Instructors can monitor individual or group work and provide feedback to students immediately without go in and out breakrooms. Zoom in to see how to use the following tools: GeoGebra classrooms, MyOpenMath, Jamboards, and Google doc in a remote learning environment. Attendees will get a copy of ready-made apps to use immediately.
Tuyetdong Phan-Yamada enjoys building interactive graphical illustrations with GeoGebra, which she integrates into her lesson plans for undergraduate Math levels including statistics, trigonometry and calculus. She extended her computational activities from the classroom to industry practice as a Summer 2014 faculty research fellow at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California. She is the president-elect of CMC3-South. She has presented much of her work at Math conferences and journals such as MAA, AMATYC, CMC3-South and more. Artwork from one of her previous articles was featured on the cover of the MathAMATYC Educator (September 2014). Some of her other work can be viewed on her website, phan-yamada.weebly.com.
