    A."may" "give" is used to indicate permission or request for permission;"might" suggests the greater teacher may have the sitation(=place where something was, is, or is to be) or diffidence(not showing much belief in one's own abilities from the teacher). Might I (=teacher) make a suggestion ? Well, if I (=teacher) may say so you may take a math. test tomorrow if you all wish which is used to indicate uncertainty, and asking for information, or expressing wonder from students. Well, who may you all be,students or the teacher to give the suggestion ?

    Hence:-The teacher will give a math test tomorrow.----exercise will-power,positive attitude."will" is better than "may"

    B.may-be adv. perhaps; possibly; as soon as; as soon as possible.Used in Oral speaking.

    Hence:-May be the teacher will give a maths. test tomorrow.-----math(s)----correct.
