Deaf Children: Three Ideas for Adapting Current Trends in Mathematics Education.
Schroeder, Brenda
Three lesson plans to adapt mathematics education for middle school students, including deaf students, are presented. The first lesson, "How Do I Identify Myself," teaches students to participate in a survey, conduct a survey, weigh results, convert results to ratios, convert ratios to percentages, construct a circle graph, and write a paragraph interpreting the graph. In the second lesson, "M & M Graphs," students learn: to predict which color of M & M occurs most frequently; to collect data from several samples; to record data on an organizer or on a computer spreadsheet; to use a calculator or computer to find the total and average for the data; to create several types of graphs to display results; to interpret the graphs; to write a business letter to confirm findings; and to state the effect of sample size on their findings. In the third lesson, "Keeping Track of Progress on Functional Skills," students learn how to: chart individual objectives met on functional mathematics tests and identify areas of need; create stem and leaf graphs for class results; create box and whisker plots for class results; plot scores on line graphs; and keep a journal of interpretations. Each lesson plan includes modifications for less able students. (CR)
