Objectives for each lesson have been aligned with the Principles and Standards for School Mathematics from the National Council for Teachers and Mathematics (NCTM). The MathBuilders: General Guidelines book is included on a CD-ROM with every unit. It is not included in print or braille in the kits, but can be purchased separately in large print and braille editions. The guidelines are a good resource for teachers who need information about teaching math to students with visual impairments and a great resource to share with the regular classroom teacher. The remaining units will be announced as they are available for sale.
