Special Needs Teacher Creates Affordable and effective Math Teaching Tool MathMitens What would you do if you got laid off because of budget cuts, and then fell and broke an elbow precluding you from finding a new job? Special Needs teacher of 30 years, Annie Hayes decided she would use convalescence to develop an idea she had for teaching math into a new product and MathMitTENS was born. Before getting laid off, Annie taught math to middle school students. Many of her students had only basic math skills and were tactile learners, frustrated with paper and pencil tasks. I was teaching pre-algebra to learners who hadnt mastered many basic math facts, often leading to very frustrating moments. These children needed tools that they owned and that could give them some levity as well as answers.
