Which math subject is your favorite to teach and why?
Answer example

"I think multiplication is probably my favorite because i can use a variety of tools like marbles, blocks, or other interactive math games for students to practice with. I also like it because it's practical and sometimes I'll set up real-life scenarios for students to use what they've learned and it's all of fun for me and them."
