These incredible math leaders have just released the free book, “Learning and Teaching the Nemeth Code within UEB Contexts: A Step-by-Step Guide“. The book systematically covers from PK-1st grade through Algebra and Geometry.

Susan shared, “Learning and Teaching the Nemeth code within UEB Contexts: A Step-by-Step Guide, originally targeting university courses training new teachers of students with visual impairments, but we (the authors) decided others might enjoy using it as well. Several university professors have piloted the book already in their program and we have received extremely positive feedback.”
