This study tries to evaluate the teaching and learning process of Teaching Functions and Relations of Sets using Nearpod. The purpose of the study is to determine whether Nearpod can be used as a Learning Platform in interactively teaching Functions and Relations between Sets in a Blended Learning Environment. This is a phenomenological study conducted in a Mathematics Class at Marikina Polytechnic College. A lesson was presented and delivered to MAT Mathematics Major students of the Marikina Polytechnic College who also assess and evaluate the lesson based on the implementation of Nearpod in teaching Functions and Relations between Sets. Reflections and Feedback given by teachers were analyzed through a thematic approach. Results show that Nearpod provides ease of access using different devices and promotes teaching both in online and face-to-face settings. Ease of access to creating diagrams through the Draw-it feature makes teaching and learning g functions and the relation between sets interactively engaging. There are, however, the teacher must be mindful of the risk in teaching relations and function of sets. To avoid it, the teacher must specify the objective of teaching Functions and relations between sets and delivering the lesson efficiently to maximize the potential of the feature of Nearpod. Thus, it is suggested to implement Interactive Teaching using Nearpod not only in teaching Mathematics but in other subjects.
