Though we all know that proper use of mathematical language is an important aspect in teaching mathematics, this did not assume priority for me until face to face classroom interaction became impossible during the pandemic. Because of the lockdown, our school (Azim Premji School, Dhamtari, Chhattisgarh) reached out to students using different modes such as sharing hard copies of reading materials, telephonic conference calls with groups of students and even video conferences. However, since the majority of our students do not have facilities such as smart phones and internet connectivity, we engaged with them mainly through the first two methods. Using these, I continued mathematics classes with students of classes 6, 7 and 8.
