When it comes to adapting classroom materials, one of the most hotly-questioned subject areas is math. Thanks to Dr. Al Maneki of Maryland and a partnership with the National Center for Blind Youth & Science, answers to the most common questions are now easily searchable and available. The responses come from the “blind math” e-mail discussion list.
You can find the categorized index, called “Blind Math Gems,” here: http://www.blindscience.org/blindmath-gems-home.
Here are a few of our favorite solutions:
- Talking business calculators
- Creating visually-appealing graphs on the computer
- How to learn LaTeX as a blind college student
What are your most common math questions? What solutions have you found work well for your students?
