Math Canvas is a place where students can draw out solutions to math problems, using artwork to illustrate their individual thinking processes.
Math Canvas promotes the following:
- Individuality -- each student's process for solving a problem may be very different from others
- Creativity -- students represent their mathematical thinking using drawings and symbols, not just with numbers
- Learning from others -- students can see how others solve a problem, introducing them to alternative ways of thinking
- Critical thinking and problem solving -- drawing allows students to explain their thinking visually, with a focus on understanding how they get to the answer vs. just the answer itself
You can also use the canvas to Free Draw anything you want!
