Math Keyboard Symbols and Its Effect in Improving Communication in Math Virtual Classes

R. M. ElSheikh and S. D. Najdi
Abstract—New technologies are rapidly changing our methods of teaching mathematics. Math Communications using special math keyboard symbols can be easily implemented, and promote the professional development of participating teachers. In this paper, a semester-long math virtual class was given at Alquds Open University (QOU) using a math keyboard symbols. Every student had a version of math keyboard and access to the Internet. The main goal was to test if that new technology provides opportunities to expand and enhance communication in virtual mathematics classes introduces though blackboard “elluminate”. The results showed that the math keyboard supports the goals of mathematics communication, and contributes to the professional development and best practice of participating teachers and students.

Index Terms—Math communication, math keyboard symbols, math virtual classes.
