Subject: [nabs-l] Reminder: It's All about Math on Tonight's NABS 

Happy Sunday Fellow Students:

 Math—it's a word which conjures up a wide range of emotions in 
students.  Some associate it with the excitement of a good 
challenge, while others (myself included) shudder with fear and 
frustration at the mention of the very word.  Too often, however, 
blind students associate math with the discouragement of being 
told we can't succeed in the subject because we are blind.  We in 
NABS and the NFB believe that blind students can succeed in 
whatever field we choose, including the STEM (science, 
technology, engineering and math) subjects.  But the question 
remains: How will we do it?

 To help answer this question, the NABS membership committee is 
excited to hold a conference call all about doing math as a blind 
student tonight at 7:00 PM EST.  This call will feature 
presentations from John Miller of our Science and Engineering 
Division and Eric Guillory of the Louisiana Center for the Blind, 
two successful blind adults who have excelled in math and who are 
now ready to share how they did it.  There will also be ample 
time for you to get your questions answered about specific 
challenges you are facing in your math classes.  No matter how 
you feel about math, this is sure to be an informative and 
empowering seminar.  To participate in the call, please dial 
(605) 475-6700 and enter access code 7869673.  We look forward to 
talking with you tonight at 7:00 PM Eastern about how you can 
live the life you want through math in college!

 Happy holidays,

 Chris Nusbaum, NABS Board Member
