    FREE WORKSHOP: Interpreting Math

    9 a.m. - 3 p.m.San Antonio College

    There is an increasing importance being placed on the role mathematics signs play in teaching and learning in the classroom. Many teachers and interpreters have different signs for certain mathematics terms and it is possible that a lack of standardization may influence learning. There is a particular need to discuss perceptions of education for the deaf.

    This workshop was designed to assist new and experienced mathematics teachers and interpreters for the deaf as well as students interested in learning about mathematics signs. Most teachers and interpreters did not have signs for advanced mathematics terms and finger-spelled those terms to avoid inventing signs. This workshop helps you to be familiar with mathematics terms and how to apply to interpreting settings.

    The workshop will be conducted in ASL. English interpretation will be provided if requested before January 27.

    Cost: Free + complimentary lunch will be provided (vegetarian/gluten free options available)

    When: Saturday, February 4, 2017
