The case, how the noun functions in the sentence.

magister is nominative singular (the subject, the one doing the action).

The teacher teaches Corinna. -> Magister Corinnam docet.

magistrum is accusative singular (the direct object, the one being directly affected by the action).

Corinna teaches the teacher. -> Corinna magistrum docet.
