Feedback from a participant

Here is a message we received from Bert, who have been attending the SU as workshop leader :

ICCHP Summer University is a great opportunity to learn about new technologies making maths and science more accessible, and to exchange tips and good practices among each other. ICCHP-SU generates, however, useful output that can be of great value to those who have not been able to attend this event, since the course material is put online afterwards.

Latest News

SU 2012 was a well-organized and fruitful event. Participants and workshop leaders took the chance to learn quite a lot from each other. We are currently planing for next years' SU in Germany, Bad Herrenalb (Karlsruhe).

Preliminary list of workshops has been published


Welcome to the ICCHP Summer University website

The ICCHP Summer University is not only a unique place for Visually Impaired students to learn about Assistive Technologies which might help them to work on Maths, Science and Statistics, but also for teachers and transcribers to learn how to make materials accessible. Finally it is a great place for researchers and developers to meet VIPs, vice versa.

Mathematical anxiety

"Feeling of tension, apprehension, or fear that interferes with math performance. Also leads to math avoidance.

People's fear of math can be related to test taking and performance anxiety. Some scholars have suggested a strong relation between math anxiety and math performance."
