For Signing Math & Science, TERC and Vcom3D used SigningAvatar® assistive technology to develop illustrated, interactive 3D standards-based sign language dictionaries that offer students in grades K-8 and 9-12 who are deaf and hard of hearing increased access to the same learning opportunities that hearing students enjoy.

Video versions are available from this page by clicking the links below or the links at the top and bottom of this page. The video versions are compatible with Mac, Chromebook, and a wide variety of platforms and web browsers and with iPads.
