Do we need Headphone with microphone and digital writing pad?

We do recommend students to use a headphone with built in microphone. A headphone provides excellent sound quality, blocks out distracting room noise and lets you speak into the microphone hands-free. If you are doing a lot of work with math, we recommend buying a digital pen tablet. These let you write on a typically 4x6" or 6x8" plastic surface with a special pen. It’s easier to write fractions, show how numbers cancel out, circle and draw, graph, etc. with a digitizing graphics tablet though you can do these things with a mouse. With a digital pen (graphics) tablet you can use the mouse or the pen. You might want to try using the mouse first and see how easy and effective this is for your need and then decide if buying a graphics tablet makes sense.
