Description

Experience the latest technologies for making math accessible to all learners. Math is its own language, and the ability to perceive and process the information in math content can be a barrier that prevents some learners from pursuing careers in math and related STEM fields. In this session, you will explore tools that provide multiple representations of math content, including text to speech supports from Texthelp and Microsoft, and sonification for complex graphs from Desmos.
