Mathematics Made Easy for Children with Visual Impairment, by Dr. M.N.G. Mani, Aree Plernchaivanich, G.R. Ramesh, and Larry Campbell, is a manual on math training for blind students. This book helps children who are blind or have low vision to master secondary level mathematics by providing their teachers and parents with a resource for improving instructional strategies. The material presented in this publication is divided into five modules. Module 1 deals with the commonly used methods of teaching mathematics to visually impaired children. This section also includes information on preparing mathematics text material, the learning characteristics of visually impaired children, and evaluation procedures in mathematics. Module 2 provides the teacher with detailed self-instructional procedures to learn and teach the effective use of the abacus. The exercises provided in this module include addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, square roots, and percentages. Module 3 provides instruction in the use of the Nemeth Braille code for all secondary level mathematical notations. Each code is described in detail and accompanied by illustrations. Module 4 provides instructions on how to adapt procedures for teaching nearly 500 secondary level mathematical concepts. Module 5 deals with a range of creative math activities including paper folding and use of the natural environment in teaching and understanding basic and secondary mathematical concepts.
Notes: This manual was developed by ON-NET, The Overbrook-Nippon Network on Educational Technology, a project supported by the Nippon International Blind and Visually Impaired Persons Leadership Program Fund.
