 Two current AI applications are ChatGPT and Canva.  AI's ability to apply math concepts to real-world scenarios makes it an excellent source to use with your classes. Students can enter prompts that address their job preference and apply math to their field of interest. But that is just one way to use AI. If students struggle understanding a concept, AI can address the math concept in a different way differentiating by student need. Canva gives you the opportunity to use Math templates in creating your lessons.
