When students think “fun,” memories of math class likely won’t be the first to pop into their heads. But that doesn’t have to be the case.
There are approaches and exercises, with and without computers, that can enliven your math lessons.
You sit at your desk, ready to put a math quiz, test or activity together. The questions flow onto the document until you hit a section for word problems.
A jolt of creativity would help. But it doesn’t come.

Although many technology-based teaching methods and resources effectively engage students and build their skills, many educators encounter difficulties when using technology in the classroom.
Maybe a specific platform is too hard to introduce. Or maybe it won’t run on your devices. Despite the challenges, you likely want to enjoy the benefits that education technology can deliver.
Having a limited amount of class time, many teachers cannot always satisfy the learning needs and speeds of all students — whether they be gifted, struggling or anywhere between.
