Welcome to Addressing Accessibility in Mathematics (AAM)! Our aim is to make mathematics instruction more accessible to a wide range of students including learners with disabilities, and to promote collaboration between mathematics teachers and special educators.
Our current project is called Differentiated Professional Development: Building Mathematics Knowledge for Teaching Struggling Students (DPD). This innovative program uses a blended model (face-to-face and online) to differentiate PD to address teachers' wide range of content knowledge, experiences and interests. The goals are to help teachers build mathematics knowledge, diagnostic approaches, and instructional strategies for teaching rational number concepts to struggling learners (with or without identified disabilities). The DPD program focuses on the Common Core State Standards for fractions and decimals (grades 4-6).
