Pagano, Todd – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2012
One of history's most diverse thinkers metaphorically depicted humanity's dangerous reliance on nonrenewable energy resources as an unborn chick in an egg. American philosopher, poet, scientist, and mathematician, Buckminster Fuller, described the nutrients in an egg as the temporary and extinguishable support required for the development of an…

Isaacson, M.D.; Srinivasan, S.; Lloyd, L.L. – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2012
Mathematics has the potential for being spoken ambiguously. This is problematic for many students, in particular those who have disabilities that inhibit processing of printed material. This paper documents the magnitude of potential ambiguity arising from textbooks and provides a measure of the degree to which potential ambiguity is actualized…

Heater, Mary Jane; Howard, Lori A.; Linz, Ed – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2012
Many students are challenged when tasked to complete a word problem. While they may know the procedural steps to solve an equation, translating a word problem into an appropriate equation and producing a solution may often cause students to become confused or unwilling to try. This article provides a potential solution for teachers by discussing…

Supalo, Cary A. – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2012
Entry into science education for students with blindness or low vision can present economic and technological barriers to access. This manuscript discusses funding hands-on student experiences in middle school, high school, and post-secondary education. Further, the use of access technologies recently developed for science education is also…

Supalo, Cary A.; Wohlers, H. David; Humphrey, Jennifer R. – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2011
Students with blindness or low vision are often discouraged from full participation in laboratory science classes due to the inadequacy of current methodological approaches and the lack of sophisticated adaptive technologies. Consequently, these students rarely go on to pursue advanced studies and employment in the sciences. In response to his own…

Isaacson, Mick; Schleppenbach, Dave; Lloyd, Lyle L. – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2011
Individuals with print disabilities have difficulty processing information through visual means and rely heavily on spoken input. Mathematics and fields that have a heavy emphasis on mathematics are difficult for these individuals because of ambiguity inherent in typical everyday spoken renderings of mathematical expressions. MathSpeak is a set of…

Ross, Annemarie D.; Pagano, Todd – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2009
There is often a particular void in the education of deaf and hard-of-hearing students who intend to become competent working laboratory technicians. Inasmuch as certain basic professional skills ("soft skills," in this case) are not generally taught in traditional science courses, a new curriculum has been developed in order to enforce…
