The present study investigated the impact using the online learning platform Pear Deck had on an online high school math class. The study measured student engagement, academic achievement, and students’ overall satisfaction with using the online learning platform. The participants in this study were online Algebra 2 students. The study was conducted during synchronous online lessons using an online learning system. Data was collected from two different live classes. One class used the online learning platform Pear Deck and the other did not. Engagement was measured by charting the number of student responses for each question posed. Students’ academic achievement was measured by a summative assessment on the lesson. The participants who used Pear Deck were given a satisfaction survey to gain a student perspective on using online learning platforms in an online math class.
