This page contains resources to support you in your work with braille readers in grades 3-8 learning geometry concepts and who use tactile graphics. The Resource List for Geometry and Tactile Graphics for Students in Grades 3 to 8 is extensive and we recommend you save it for future reference. On this page we have also provided links to the resources that are shared in several of the lessons so that all the resources are in one place. If you have recommendations for additional resources, please share those with Dr. Herzberg at firstname.lastname@example.org.
