Presented in ASL Only.

For K-12 ASL Educational Interpreters, Teachers of Deaf/Hard of Hearing, and Related Service Providers of Deaf/Hard of Hearing Students

Workshop description:  There is increasing emphasis on the importance of higher math concepts. Many interpreters and teachers have different signs for certain mathematical terms, and it is possible that a lack of standardization may influence learning. This workshop will demonstrate signs for real-life math terms so teachers and interpreters can be a part of the standardization of ASL signs.

Workshop objectives:

  • Demonstrate the interpreting process for math topics.
    ·        Incorporate illustrations from math textbooks into interpretations.

    ·        Analyze math and ASL texts and create varied interpretations into the target language.

    ·        Use visualization techniques to develop conceptually accurate interpretations of math concepts.
