ab: Summary: Implementing Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles can
provide solutions for general educators in inclusive mathematics
environments. Any lesson can be planned to provide learning experiences
appropriate for meeting diverse learning needs. This article explores
an example of both how to approach a topic in middle school mathematics
and include essential UDL specifications using relevant technology.
First, UDL is defined, and specific characteristics of the methodology
are described. Next, the authors look at an Illuminations lesson and
illustrate how UDL principles and technology can be infused into rich
mathematical lesson plans to heighten learning experiences for all
students. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.) (ERIC)
