Uses in the Deaf Education Classroom

Since many teachers of deaf children do not have a specific curriculum in which to follow, these sites provide access to information to assist teachers in their instruction of mathematics and to improve the learning of students, grades K-12. The NCTM site is presently constructing an updated draft of the National Standards, scheduled for released in October of this year. Until that time, both sites refer viewers to the national standards listed on the ENC web page. This web site is helpful by, providing teachers with an overview of the national curriculum standards, clustering the grade levels from K-12, and further dividing the standards by subject matter. Teachers in Deaf Education classrooms could greatly benefit from these sites as a means to determine what and how to teach mathematics to their children.
