Discover how math can be taught without words in this TED talk. Be inspired by the fact that Matthew is dyslexic and because of it, he discovered how to teach math to diverse learners like himself.
"In school, the dominant way of conveying ideas is through words. Words can be great barriers to learning. Matthew Petersen shows and explains how we can learn without words.
Matthew Peterson, Ph.D., is Co-Founder, Senior Institute Scientist, and Chief Technical Officer of the MIND Research Institute. He is the creator of MIND's Math instructional software that teaches math to students using a unique non-language-based approach. Matthew was recently featured on Discovery Channel's "Profile Series." His focus is on developing math learning environments that initially convey sophisticated concepts visually, enabling students to gain a solid conceptual understanding of mathematics regardless of language proficiency. Matthew's cutting-edge teaching methods are currently benefiting over 300,000 students. He is the author of "MIND's Algebra Readiness" textbook, adopted in California in 2008, in addition to other technical and scientific publications."
Be amazed on the equations that were created to design graphics on this free online graphing calculator! Desmos set out to re-imagine the graphing calculator from the ground up, building on the best technologies available. They are driven by a few core beliefs:
> "every student deserves access to the best tools for learning > it's a travesty that educational tools have fallen so far behind as technology in general has catapulted forward > learning is a process of exploration and discovery, not a series of answers > everyone can learn and enjoy math, given the right environment > math is beautiful and surprisingly fun."
"Is there is a way to narrow the middle school science and math gap for children with disabilities? According to one researcher, Dr. Matthew Marino of Washington State University, perhaps it has already arrived, via a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) curriculum in a Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework underpinned by nascent assistive and instructional technology.
