Dear all,

I am Bhavya Shah, a blind mathematics enthusiast and a student at
Stanford University. I am currently working on Math By Ear, a virtual
audio lesson series teaching Math to blind and visually impaired
school students.

While many of us recently enjoyed the incredible virtual convention,
something blind students often don't get to enjoy is Math. Whether it
is graphs and figures, absence of Nemeth Braille and Math ML material,
blind students all too often are confronted with artificial barriers
to an accessible Math education. As someone who has faced and overcome
these challenges first-hand, I am trying to bridge this gap through
Math By Ear.

As part of Math By Ear, I am creating free audio lessons teaching Math
- concepts, logic, practice questions and everything in between - for
blind students to access online at their own pace, at their own
convenience. I am delighted to share that audio lessons covering the
entirety of Linear Equations in One Variable are now up at

Whether you are a teacher, educator,  or ally of blind students, I
would love to hear your feedback on Math By Ear. Do you think
something isn't working and needs to change? Is there a specific
chapter I should cover next? Do you have any questions or concerns
about this project? Comments, criticisms and compliments are always
welcome! As a blind student lucky to have discovered the beauty of
mathematics, this is my attempt at giving back.

Best Regards,
Bhavya Shah
