Tactile 3-D Demonstrations via Cube and MakerbotInternational Conference on Technology in Collegiate Mathematics (ICTCM) (2014)
Difficulties inherent in representing 3-‐D objects on 2-‐D media can present barriers to student understanding of mathematical concepts as they relate to solids. All students, but particularly those who have visual impairments, can benefit from a tactile representation of mathematical objects.
Because 3-‐D printers are becoming more commonplace and can generate a wide variety of objects, the ability to create real hands-‐on objects is no longer out of the question. The authors will show how tactile 3-‐D objects can enhance mathematical experiences in Calculus and provide some helpful tips for good quality 3-‐D printing on Cube and MakerBot Replicator 2.
