NCSM: UDL Math Designing Mathematics Classrooms from the Margins Tuesday 9/27 11:15 - 12:15 Platinum 3 To address inequities in mathematics, we must redesign instruction to meet the diverse needs of students at the margins, including students with disabilities. This presentation will introduce participants to UDL Math, an integration of Universal Design for Learning, research in mathematics, and design thinking for educators. We will explore barriers in mathematics based on the lived experience of disabled students and describe the UDL Math Design Elements, including engagement, representation and supports for strategic development.
NCTM: UDL Math: A Framework for Designing Inclusive Mathematics Classrooms
Thursday 9/29 8:00 – 9:00 AM 404 LA Convention Center
Universal Design for Learning presents a vision of math classrooms without barriers for students with disabilities, but how do we put this vision into practice?UDL Math is a framework and design process created by Dr. Lambert to align UDL principles with best practices in mathematics education, with strategic sense making at the center.
NCTM: Using Empathy Interviews to Center Student Stories for Inclusive Mathematics (Kara Imm, Avery McNiff, Rachel Lambert)
Thursday 9/29 2:45 – 4:00 PM 515 A LA Convention Center
Drawing from our work engaging mathematics teachers in designing inclusive classrooms, we describe the use of Empathy Interviews. These are one-on-one interviews with students in which they share their math experiences. We will listen to empathy interviews, hear narratives of teachers using these interviews, simulate the process, and create an empathy map.
NCTM: Humanizing Math Intervention: Developing Mathematical Agency (Rachel Lambert, Monica Mendoza, Tomy Nguyen, Avery McNiff)
Friday 9/30 8:00 – 9:00 AM 404 LA Convention Center
We will present the results of two intervention studies with third through fifth graders that sought to engage students in meaningful mathematics and expand their sense of mathematical agency while increasing their computational fluency in multiplication and division.
