As information increases explosively, the diversity and heterogeneity of knowledge in different domains make it difficult to represent and share knowledge. The above domains affect the social interactions as well as the personal growth and development of the children. An advantage of online math game systems is that students are able to continue their mathematics practice at home. Some teachers have their own classrooms and work with small groups of students.

Special education teachers can contact this office to get leads on possible job opportunities.
