Many education institutions in Uganda and the world at large were closed in March, 2020 in order to slow down the spread of the Corona Virus. More than fifteen million students and teachers in Uganda were affected, all education activities such as teaching, and assessing of learners were prematurely stopped. Different approaches have been adopted to ensure continuity of learning during the lockdown and closure of schools. Most of these approaches are aiming at maintaining social distance and avoiding mass gathering during learning. The teaching of mathematics involves hands on problem solving, this means that meaningful learning of mathematics is through student teacher interactions. However, due the social distancing practice of slowing down the spread of Covid-19, the physical student-teacher interaction is impossible. The purpose of this study is to explore the Non-Student-Teacher Interaction (NSTI) ICT approaches that can be used during the teaching and learning of mathematics. An experimental approach was adopted during this study, a sample of forty-five mathematics students at Mountains of the Moon University was used and the results of the study indicated that video recording of lessons is an effective NSTI-ICT-approach of teaching mathematics.

Keywords: Covid-19, students-teacher interactions, teaching approaches, video recordings, zoom, printable materials.
