Workshop/Course Description: There is increasing importance and awareness being placed on the role Math plays in teaching and learning in the classroom. Many teachers and interpreters have different signs for certain Math terms and it is possible that a lack of standardization may influence learning. There is a particular need to discuss perceptions of math signs in order to help prepare new teachers and interpreters who pursue careers in mathematics education for the deaf. The present workshop was designed to assist new and experienced mathematics teachers and interpreters for the deaf as well as students interested in learning about mathematical signs. Most teachers and interpreters did not have signs for advanced mathematics and fingerspell those terms to avoid inventing signs. This workshop helps you to be familiar with mathematical terms and how to use them in interpreting settings. Educational
