Graspable Math will facilitate synchronous, collaborative math work online. Collaborative learning, problem solving, and exchange are crucial in math education. Yet remote instruction is often limited to lecture-style lessons and solo coursework. Through this app, students will be able to jointly solve algebraic problems on an interactive, supportive algebra whiteboard with the capability to record click-stream and audio data for academic research and iterative improvements.
