Bente,

I always look forward to your posts!!  Very well explained!!
Did you come up with one, or were you shown?  Just curious!

Yay-- This is fun!

Ian

: For 3-D graphing you need an x, y, and z axis so I don't think you will 
find
: what we would call accessible because the z axis is technically rising up 
in
: the air from the origin.  He will be creating graphs that look like they 
are
: floating in the quadrant based on their coordinates. The best you may be
: able to do is to put different colors on each axis x,y, and z with colored
: sharpies to help him as he follows the coordinates given in the problem. 
If
: he has trouble understanding the concepts you can re-create the quadrants 
by
: using index cards so he can conceptualize the change in the quadrant 
system.
: I did this years ago by putting slits halfway through index cards and then
: we put them together so we could see the 8 pockets of space that now 
existed
: because of the addition of the z axis.  Hope this helps.

: My son will be starting a 3d graphing unit that is fairly short (2 weeks) 
in
: about a week.  He spent some time searching online with his Math tutor for
: 3d Graphing paper and this is the graph paper that they found that worked
: the best for his vision from what they were able to find in free 3d graph
: paper options.  Does anyone know of a more accessible free (or low cost)
: option?

: Dear all,
:
: I'd like to bring to everyone's attention a project to advance browser and
: e-reader support for MathML.  The project description itself is very
: detailed, and explicitly mentions the issue of accessibility in the
: motivation section.
:
: The person behind this project is Fr?d?ric Wang.  He is one of the people
: who has worked hard on MathML support in browser technology over the last
: few years, so is best placed to know what the issues are and what the next
: stage in development should be.  So if anyone is going to improved 
matters,
: he's the best choice.
:
: He's looking for funding so that he can spend some time concentrating on
: MathML development and the website is on a crowd-funding site where people
: can contribute.  The actual amount that he is trying to raise is not
: actually all that much, particularly given the wide-ranging benefits that
: could follow from this.
:
: I hope that all of you will consider supporting this project, and that 
some
: of you will actually do so.
