Welcome to an Introduction to UEB Math/Science for Pre-Kindergarten – 1st Grade Students and Strategies for Supporting Math Learning. This is the seventh course in the Project INSPIRE series.

The Project INSPIRE Course 1 focuses on the Nemeth Code within UEB Contexts as well as methods and materials for teaching math to Pre-Kindergarten-1st grade students who are braille readers. Course 7, which you will find on this webpage, focuses on UEB Math/Science (sometimes called UEB Technical or UEB Math) for the same age group.

The examples in Course 7 use UEB Math/Science, and resources specific to UEB Math/Science are shared. When instructional materials are only available in Nemeth Code within UEB Contexts, we have indicated this to alert individuals that they may need to adapt materials and/or check with publishers to see if updated materials are available in UEB Math/Science. Some manipulatives and resources (e.g., Digi-Blocks, base ten blocks, ten frames) are included in both Course 1 and Course 7 since they are universally-designed.

Please review the objectives for this course.

Please begin the course by watching these short introductory videos.
