A No-Tech/Low-Tech Integration of UDL in Math –”Fantastic!”

A No-Tech/Low-Tech Integration of UDL in Math –”Fantastic!” | Universal Design for Learning and Curriculum | Scoop.it

 

"As the CCSS has been crafted with principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to support inclusive access for all students with identified learning needs and/or disabilities, English Learners, linguistic minority students, as well as students from fragile families, many educators respond with concern that without technological resources, they feel challenged to design instruction to meet the diverse needs of their students. While technology can provide expanded access, there are many “no-tech and low-tech” options that many teachers utilize that are also UDL-considerate." - Jennifer Finney-Ellison

Amy Archambault's curator insight, March 4, 2016 4:14 PM

Introducing two new math apps that are designed based on the principles of UDL: MarhScaled and MathSquared.

 

Why Puzzles?  They note that:

"Puzzles provide a natural format for developing reasoning skills. By teaching algebraic reasoning skills in a context that does not appear to be math-specific, puzzles address affective barriers to learning (e.g., math anxiety). Providing different types of puzzles offers practice across multiple representations, which is critical for developing the ability to generalize."
