Computers and software programs allow students who have difficulty
using math tools to participate in math activities to construct
and manipulate objects for counting, sorting, combining and completing
related work sheets. These Assistive Technology options ease access
to classroom math materials and technology.
This module identifies specific tools to help students apply math
in real world settings and to solve problems through a variety of
alternate means. We also offer a handout on Vendors
of Math products. Further information on Math for students with
disabilities can be found in our NonComputer
Aids module.
Standards of learning for mathematics in elementary grades focus
on the understanding of math concepts, using tools and computing
facts and then applying them to life situations.
