    One is plural, the other is not.

    Also, French adjectives change to agree in gender and number with the nouns that they modify.

    So what do you think?

    Just think for a minute about what you'd say in English. ;)

    Would you say that each classroom has "interactive boards" (more than one)? Or would you say that each classroom has "an interactive board"? If you would use the singular in English, then you should use the singular in French.

    tableau_ interactif_ is singular (note how there is no x on tableau in the singular)
    tableaux interactifs is plural (note the s on the adjective interactifs so that it agrees with the masculine plural noun tableaux)
