Main content

This math class is designed for secondary students who will be enrolled for credit in Algebra I or a more advanced SBOE mathematics course during the school year. Students will learn to use a variety of tools in the following areas:

  • Improve skills in using linear measuring devices
  • Improve skills in graphing on a number line and coordinate plane
  • Improve skills in interpreting and constructing tactile graphics
  • Improve skills in interpreting and constructing geometric figures
  • Improve skills in using graphing and non-graphing scientific calculators
  • Improve skills in using a talking scientific calculator


The goal of this program is to provide students with the tools and techniques needed by a visually impaired learner to be successful in a regular math course. Unique adaptations will be provided for the blind and for the low vision learner, including exposure to adaptive graphing calculator solutions. Students will leave the program with new adaptive skills and with knowledge about resources available to assist them in future learning.
