Welcome to the AnimalWatch Vi: Building Graphics Literacy web site.  Our project's aim is to support students with visual impairments in building their pre-algebra skills and ability to interpret information presented in graphics (e.g., bar graphs, scatterplots, maps). Research shows that if a student is not successful in pre-algebra he or she is less likely to succeed in higher level math. By pairing instruction in how to approach graphics with engaging content about environmental science issues, we will increase the math word problem solving skills of students with visual impairments.
