Connecting the Dots Between STEM and CCSS for Students Who Are Visually Impaired

Abstract

The Tennessee School for the Blind (TSB) surveyed teachers of students with visual impairments across the state seeking the percentage of students who have equitable access to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) in their local schools. Using this data, TSB created a model program and professional development to connect STEM and CCSS for these students. You will learn about this program and how to assist these students in your own state.

Navigating Math Expressions With Synthetic Speech

Abstract

After improving the way computers speak math, we have now enabled them to speak it interactively. Learn how students can use the keyboard to explore the structure and details of the expression bit by bit, rather than having to listen to the entire expression from beginning to end, repeating as needed.

Michigan workshop registration

Description:
This is a three day workshop consisting of a two day overview of APH-NIP products, math tools, materials, and technology for teaching mathematics including assessments and accommodations. Day 3 will be focused on math technology using Scientific Notebook: Math Word Processor, Scientific Graphing Calculator, and Gateway to Nemeth Translation.

  • The learner will list several APH products used to assist visually impaired students with math instruction.
  • The learner will demonstrate knowledge of accessible math tools and technology.
  • The learner will gain access to Nemeth translation technology using Scientific Notebook.
  • The learner will demonstrate knowledge of accessible graphing calculator software.

Participants will need to bring a laptop for day 3 with the following software installed: Scientific Notebook and DBT WIN 11.1 SR4. (Demo versions will work but must also be registered to be fully functional)

Co-Sponsored by APH and the National Instructional Partnerships, Michigan Department of Education-Low Incidence Outreach and Kent ISD.

Mathematics for Students with a Vision Impairment; Early Childhood – Grade 12.

hosted by The Wisconsin Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired (WCBVI)

This is a three day opportunity scheduled for July 15-17, 2013 in Madison WI.

On July 15th and 16th, Susan Osterhaus from the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired (TSBVI) will be presenting on how to teach Math for the Braille reader and student with Low Vision using graphics and accessible math tools and technology. APH products will be demonstrated during this session.

On Wednesday, July 17th, Susan will be presenting "Scientific Notebook: Word Processor, Scientific Graphing Calculator and Gateway to Nemeth Translation."

Registration for these sessions will be separate. You may participate in one or both. Participants in the Scientific Notebook session will need a PC laptop (NOT a MAC) with Scientific Notebook 5.5 (from MacKichan Software), and Duxbury DBT WIN 11.1 SR4 (from Duxbury Systems) installed. You may download and use a Trial version of each , but you must register the Scientific Notebook, or it will not be fully functional, and it is only good for 30 days. The DBT WIN trial version does not expire nor do you need to register it, but in generates annoying random "d's" and will not allow you to save a document.

Registration information will be available soon. Registration will be online. A nominal fee will be charged. For more information, contact: Kay Glodowski, WCBVI Outreach at 715-453-2141 or .

A brief overview of the NCTM (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics) content standards and the significance of manipulatives in general will be followed by an explanation of how blind and visually impaired students develop math concepts and skills. Numerous accessible math manipulatives will then be shared with the participants. As we go through each NCTM content standard (Number and Operations, Algebra, Geometry, Measurement, and Data Analysis & Probability), manipulatives that can be used in support of each standard will be exhibited as they extend from Early Childhood through Secondary, and sample test items will further illustrate their usefulness. Finally, we will take a look at manipulatives appropriate for the Kansas Mathematics Assessment.
