Overview

Do you work with students who struggle to write math concepts and show their work? Whether you work with students who write using SGDs, use keyboarding or dictation, math concepts present a challenge in teaching/supporting math instruction for some students with significant physical disabilities. Explore the principles of UDL, particularly as related to math, and explore a variety of tools to improve student access to the content.

Learning Objectives

  1. By examining case studies and examples, participants will be able to apply principles of UDL to math expression tasks.
  2. Participants will be able to list and describe 3-5 tools for writing/expressing math concepts (numbers, symbols, operations).
  3. Participants will be able to differentiate between the features of 3-5 math tools to match features to target student needs.
