Subject: Re: Blind student in algebra

I truly wish that I could help you. I know that it can be done because last June a blind student graduated from Notre Dame University at the top of the class. He majored in chemistry and pre-medicine. He went to medical school at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He had passed calculus with an A. As a matter of fact, he had passed al his subjects with As! Algebra Tiles are the first manipulative that comes to mind as it is tactile as well as visual. I have had deaf students and those with cerebral palsy who could not write but never blind. -Marielouise, for the Teacher2Teacher service
