  2. DEVELOPMENT OF VISUAL INSTRUCTION MATERIALS FOR MATH AND SCIENCE CURRICULUM USING THE TOPOLOGICAL PANORAMA CAMERA

    SBC: Janet Gelphman Photography            Topic: N/A

    LEARNING ABILITIES IN MATHEMATICS AND THE SCIENCES ARE NOT MAXIMIZED BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF VISUAL INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS. THE IMPROVEMENT OF THESE SKILLS IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE BETTER SCIENCE AND MATH ABILITIES ARE NEEDED IN THE UNITED STATES IN ORDER TO KEEP UP WITH OTHER INDUSTRIALIZED NATIONS. OUR PROPOSED SOLUTION IS TO USE A NEW TECHNOLOGY, THE TOPOLOGICAL PANORAMA CAMERA, TO CREATE COST-EFFE ...

  5. Mobile Signing Math Dictionary with Mouth Morphemes

    SBC: Vcom3D, Inc.            Topic: 84133S2

    Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing (Deaf/hh) persons rely heavily on facial movements for communication, whether in American Sign Language (ASL), Signed English (SE), or Spoken English. In ASL, signers add “mouth morphemes”, similar to speech movements, to signs to distinguish concepts that use the same manual sign. Hard-ofhearing persons who use spoken communication, read mouth shapes to distinguish si ...
