Math through the Mind's Eye

  • Math through the Mind's Eye

    Sara Fisher, Christopher Hartmann
    This paper considers recommendations from the Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (PSSM) in relation to pedagogy for the visually impaired. The authors present three examples of ways that mathematics instruction for blind learners can employ representations in ways that are consistent with PSSM. In reflecting on these examples, the authors identify lessons for all mathematics teachers. The nature of these accommodations provide a new perspective on the recommendations in the PSSM.
